How do you pronounce Caesar?
I think in USA, much of it any way, He sees her. Would be how many pronounces it. With the h being silent.
Similar to #2 in your list.
Here in Germany it's tsä-sar or Kais-sar
Wow, never heard it that way.
Oddly when talking about the person I pronounce it See-Ser but when talking the salad I pronounce it like See-Zar. Not sure why the difference.
except the z is somewhere between an s and z sound, and proceeding e is somewhere between a and e.
also the s is a little bit more of a short c sound, such as the pronunciation of cereal. (the tongue comes out a little bit further when making an s sound compared to a soft c sound)
So maybe I could write
but the ae would be a shorter pronunciation
The German way might be actually quite near the real Latin. I once learned that the italian way "tchésàr" should be quite correct.
Separate names with a comma.
