Noriyasu or Noriyuki
Explanation:
When used in names, "徳" is most likely to be "nori", and "恭", "Yasu". So, Noriyasu may be a good candidate for this name. But, I found this name on the web, and his name is Noriyuki.

Thank you, Daisuke-san! That wasn't the same person, but I needed the most likely pronunciation. Fortunately, we are allowed to put [name not confirmed] after names in this project.

I'm afraid you have to ask the person


Explanation:
Names are tricky. That's probably why almost all forms in Japan ask you to supply Furigana for your name. (For instance, nobody can tell for sure if 良子 is Yoshiko or Ryoko unless you know it.) If he is famous, 人名辞典 may help you and if he is an author, his book will carry Hiragana reading for his name. Otherwise, you will need to ask the people who know (of) him.

agree  Minoru Kuwahara: my family name has different pronunciation and when people pronounce it, the result is varied, which somehow sounds strange to me, though. :-) -
