In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice there is a female character named Maria. In film versions of the movie, they pronounce this characters name as one would pronounce Mariah. Is that a common pronunciation of Maria in the Regency Era? What about in other time periods? Can Maria still be pronounced Mariah today or has it gone to the wayside?
