    I'm from England and I say them like you do: Harper is har-puh, Carter is car-tuh, Riker is rye-kuh... Saying "har-per" just sounds odd to me.

    This is different to saying it 'harp-a' (a like cat) though like the Aussies are saying they do. The way you described it is the way I say it. I don't think any accent puts the stress on the 'er'.

    I'm an Aussie and I say it that way too.

    My name - Liana, is pronounced Lee-Ah-Nah but my Canadian teacher says Lee-Anne-Ah.

    harp-a and harp-uh sound the same to me... My American friends do stress the "er" though, at least the ones that I've met.
