Wayne, the way I was brought up pronouncing my name is like you said, Marr. My Grandmother who was from Massachusetts pronounced it Maw her. I am in the Navy and I had another person who worked with me named Dave Meagher and he pronounced it Mayor. He was from Misouri and I am from Ohio, so maybe it is where you are from and your accent that will give you the correct pronunciation. When I would visit overseas and run into someone from Ireland, they would pronounce my name as Maw her. let me know if that helps. Drop me a line sometime. I live in Virginia Beach Virginia at the present.
