How do YOU pronounce YOUR name?

This is an experimental page. It is based on what little evidence there is from scholarly works and from remarks made by locals in the present-day Inverbervie, Scotland UK, area. If you have another view, or additional information on this topic, please share it with us. We would be interested in pronunciation variations around the world today, as well as evidence about the ancient names and their pronunciation. Please include voice recordings, or use phonetic spelling, if possible. 

Has anyone heard this one?

Hear it! This AL-ER-DIS pronunciation appeared in an audio clip from a fantasy/ adventure page on the Internet. This originated from England and revolved around a fictional character with the spelling Allerdice. Does anyone in real life use this pronunciation, or know of anyone who does?
