I've always pronounced it Mar-e-o, just like he says in Mario 64 (it's a me! Mario!) But i've heard a lot of people pronounce it Mare-e-o, like The angry Video Game Nerd. I'm also pretty sure they call him Mare-e-o in the mario bros super show.

Anyways, im not asking for the correct way to pronounce his name (its Mar-e-o), im just asking which way you guys say it.

Most Americans say mah-re-oh.
Most Italians say mah-re-oh.
Mario says mah-re-oh.

I don't understand why anyone would ever call him Mare-ee-oh, unless their name is Mario and it is pronounced that way in their language. Yet, people still do.

The Italians say "Mah-rio", the character himself says "Mah-rio" and so does Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of the character. So that's the one and only correct pronunciation.

When someone says "Mary-oh" it's like listening to someone scraping a chalkboard. You just don't do it.

I made this topic because i've been watching Pat the NES Punk vidoes on youtube, and he constantly mispronounces his name, its like someone stabbing me in the ear.

Not even 20 seconds into this video he calls him Mary-o.

On a side note, they're actually pretty good videos.

Sadly, not everyone is blessed with intelligence greater than that of the common bread mold spore.
Excluding recognition of the above, I would think that no one would pronounce the name as Mary-o without deliberately attempting to be annoying or amusing.

The way Mario himself says it. It's-a me, Mah-re-oh! Woo-hoo!
It's-a me!

I think people that pronounce it "Mary-Oh" just have an accent. I chalk it up to that. However, there are people who just pronounce things wrong. I was watching some Castlevania gameplay and the guy talking had no real accent, just a tad urban. Anyway, the guy found something called "Soul of Belnades" or whatever. Now most people who have played Castlevania know that it's pronounced "Bell-nah-dess" but he kept saying "Bell-naids". That got on my nerves right there.
