How is Bjorn's name pronounced?

I was just wondering, how is Bjorn's name pronounced?

I know that some people (Praticuarilly the British people) like saying his name is Born.  (They also seem to mix up which one is Benny and which one is Bjorn...) 

I have a friend who once told me that his name is pronounced with a very short O, sort of like this:  Bjirn.

Another friend of mine pronounces his name as Bay-orn. 

I'm just going to pronounce his name the way its spelled: Bjorn.  And something that everyone should remember is that the Swedish people pronounce their Js as Ys.  (That's why people like saying that Swedish people say "Yah" a lot, when they're just saying "Yes" in Swedish, which is "Ja".)
