Translations of "Oclock"

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? About 5 oclock

Fivish or fiveish?
A: Mmm, not sure how to spell it. You could probably just say five-ish. You might see it spelled like this since you can tack on “ish” to the end of anything (like, I mean anything) so to make up for the awkward orthographic rules and stuff you could include a hyphen if it looks weird like that.

If it doesn’t end in a consonant like that you can just add it onto the end though (yellowish)
I definitely wouldn’t go with fiveish. That looks bizarre. 5ish or five-ish I would say.
