That's what I sort-of-thought (with a side bet on it rhyming with "soul")
until I read someone, possibly Robert Heinlein, commenting that Poul
Anderson's name was essentially impossible to pronounce correctly unless
one had the same ancestry and upbringing as the man himself -- which I
haven't.  At that point I abandoned trying to pronounce it at all.
