And it depends on how they're said. mar-ee-el is how I would pronounce Mariel, however I've been influenced strongly by the Spanish language. Looking at it from a Midwest perspective (where I'm at now) I can somewhat understand why it would be considered a variant spelling - the sounds would slur more - mare-ee-el/meer-ee-el.
