Spelling for vs. M-are-ee

I want M-are-ee not Mary, so I’m thinking maybe Mariska (like the actress) and nn Mari, but I’m afraid she will always be called Mary. Thoughts or other suggestions?

When I see Mari, I say it the way you want it pronounced, not like Mary. And it’s very pretty by the way :)

I think Mari is lovely, and I don’t mispronounce it. I also pronounce it in the way you do. With a different spelling...?

Mahree ?

It’s not a very pretty spelling but it’s the only one I can think of as an alternative.

Stick with Mari.

I’m not sure I understand. Do you want it pronounced like Marie?

I’m named Mara (m-are-uh) and people call me m-are-ee sometimes. You could also name her Marianna (m-are-ee-ah-nuh). I’m sure everyone will call her Mari then.
