I know two girls with this name, and both pronounce it ah-ZAH-ree-ah.

I've never heard it pronounced A-za-RYE-ah except when read out of the Bible. In the case of Azaria Chamberlain it was always pronounce az-ah-REE-ah in Australia. I think the later pronunciation is very pretty for a girl but the former is more fitting for a boy.
