I love this name and had always pronounced this name (with any of the spellings) ZAH-ri-ah (the i saying it's name) but only just realised it's meant to be ZAH-ree-ah. I wonder if that is a regional thing (Australia) or just me? :) I actually don't like the name as it is said according to the Nameberry pronunciation. The Y spelling also makes a lot more sense the way I pronounce it.
