Pronounced MAH-ree, very different than Mary.

The Scottish bridal song Mari's Wedding is traditionally played at wedding receptions.

Actually, the song played at wedding receptions in Scotland is "Mairi's Wedding" not "Mari's Wedding." Although it's actually a common spelling mistake and is sometimes called "Mary's Wedding" or "Marie's Wedding."

Mari is not mentioned as a common Norwegian name here but it is. Probably as common as Kari, which means it's really very common.

Estonian form of MARY, means "berry" in Estonian.

This name is hideously common in Finland. It's a very boring, bland name that parents seem to have picked because they haven't felt like giving the name much thought, maybe because some of them have been less enthusiastic about parenting to begin with. This is also commonly combined with another name, usually Anne, as in Anne-Mari. It's quite plain on its own.

This is also an Italian name derived from the Latin meaning "sea" or "seashore". I don't know whether or not it's used as a first name, but it is used as a surname.
