Since more options is always a good thing, the unincorporated "blink-and-you-missed-it" village of Schley, Iowa, is pronounced with a long i as in "high".

I changed the name. I agree with the pronunciation ending in Lay not Lee

Hmmmm... I would guess it might be pronounced "SCHLAY"...or "SCHLEE" maybe. You might consider changing it to the primary name and see if any comments pop up on the forum.
