Oops, I edited it while you replied!

It's pronounced like "County Kerry" in Ireland. She's not named after that, though- my parents just liked the name! But Carrie is pronounced like "carry," and my sister's is pronounced like "berry" with a k.

These....look the same to me. Lol.

I really like the name Parker - boy or girl. Oh and I solved the "Huh? What is your name? How do you spell that?" by just giving them Matt. He's always with me anyway and I get tired of spelling my name (Caitlin).

I pronounce the names Barry and Carrie the same way, and that's how every Carrie I've known has pronounced their name.

Kerri rhymes with berry, Jerry, Terri, for example!

So, one is Carrie and one is Kerry? I think I get it. Like the difference between Pen, Pan, and Pin.

I'm still saying it the same way. I think it's a southern thing

I've never lumped myself in with the Jessicas... lol. I still have to think sometimes that my name is Jessica- I've gone by Jessie for so long!

I demand video. This might be a problem with my not an accent (thank you Colorado) but I can't figure out how to pronounce those names the way you're describing.
