Pondering

If you wished to claim someone could not wear a tie for fear of being strangled by it, WHAT would you call it? Asphyxiaphobia, stranglophobia, Pnigophobia, or something else?
Yes, I've tried Google, yes I've consulted http://www.phobialist.com/ all three of my suggestions have came up, none of them really seem to be the official fear of being strangled (much less by ones own tie).
Which of the three would imply such a fear to you?
I am edging towards stranglophobia as it seems the most obvious.

Serious and non serious answers welcome.
