I don't say Murray that way, but I've only heard one pronounciation for
Mary/merry/marry in the U.S. at least.  I have a slight affected accent so
they come out slightly differently, but the pronounciation I've always
heard the same...says the U.S. midwesterner, dunno, how else would people
pronounce them?
