Does anybody know any reference to look up for the exact “English” pronunciation of the Greek names such as Aeschylus, Euripides etc? These are of course common names and traceable in some talking dictionaries. I mean the weirder names.

A quick/general reference on pronunciation is here: http://www.faqs.org/faqs/classics-faq/
I think that if you pick up most recent translations (intended for college reading) of the Classical authors in which you are interested, you'll usually find a pronunciation guide somewhere toward the back.
A very large dictionary may also give the pronunciations. I've found the American Heritage Dictionary to be, despite its name, like a brief encyclopedia in its coverage of people and place names.
