How do them Eyetalians pronounce it? Mah D ooooooo.
Omg I'm 1 of 2 here. HAHAHA.
I've only heard people from New Jersey pronounce it Merry-O. Go figure.
We are it, I suppose.
[Inglourious]That's why you're 3rd best.[/Basterds]

Seems like we are both from non-native English speaking country?
At this point, people are bumping this thread because its so retarded.
He's from New Jersey AFAIK.
LOL, was about to comment that Merry-Oh is up there with Eye-Talian.
Worth mentioning that Nintendo's very own Super Mario Brothers 2 commercial pronounced it as Merry-Oh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMFdeYwPEQQ
I bet that affected some people.
I call him Jumpman. That's J-ump-man.
Only time in my life I have ever heard of pronounced "Merry-O" was Rick Moranis on Ghost Busters when he said "Wanna come back to my place and play boggle or Super Merry-o" bros?
I pronounce it "Son-ic-is-bett-er"
And you are also WRONG. Just like the majority of posters in this thread are.
Here's a person pronouncing it as Merry-o at the 1990 CES: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifgL3ED38Oc
Rofl awesome find.
You 1.3%'ers can find your way to the door.
I like pronounce it correctly, but that's just me.
I still say its Merry-O. Its how most people I've heard say it.. however.. today I was watching the Realiatic Mario with my son and he pronounced it Mar-ee-o.
So.. theres that...
Ok so your wrong big deal. Mario knows how to say his own name though if you ever want to know the truth.
He pronounces it with an accent. I don't pronounce spaghetti or lasagna like an Italian... so why the name?
Let that sink in.
FWIW, Luigi from The Super Mario Bros Super Show pronounces it somewhere between MAH and MEH, but the theme song and most others clearly say MAH. I think a ton of people probably learned how to say it from this...
Also, Mario is the male version of Maria, and usually that means they are pronounced similarly
wait, how do you pronounce those words, and how do you THINK an italian does?
MAR - E - O
I think if you are from New York City, it's MARE - E - O
Can confirm this, I'm from Oklahoma too.
I'd figured it was just a 'parents' thing where at a certain age Oklahoman's just give up trying to pronounce names correctly. Some day I'm going to take on the mantle of incorrectly pronouncing names from my father, who took it from his father before him... probably.
The massive 99% - 1% poll results basically have made OP's attempt at discourse nothing more than a straw poll
I've definitely heard "Merry-oh" used a lot when referring to Mario Andretti. Not saying it's right, but that was a very common pronunciation when I was young.
I died laughing while I watched this....
This video just made my day
