I used to say it like mare, because that's how everyone I know pronounced it growing up: that's how people normally pronounce the name Mario in Canada I believe. After hearing Super Mario pronounce his own name the Italian way, now I pronounce it the Italian way too though.

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 say Marry-oh personally. I always thought Mah-rio was just the American accent coming in, because everyone I know in England says it the way I do, but if Italians say it that way, I guess I'm wrong- not that that means I'll change the way i say it
