"Many people do not know how to spell or pronounce it. I pronounce it "mur ray" but have had it pronounced "mur RAY" with the "ray" part pronounced hard. I am the only Murray I know, so it makes me feel unique and not like the run of the mill name." Jul. 16, 2014:
"Is usually given to dogs or cats nowadays, but does make a spunky name for girls, much more so these days than it would ever do for boys. Most male Murrays today are retired and are down at the clubhouse playing pinochle with friends of theirs called Milton and Monroe." Jun. 11, 2008:
"Not heard of much these days, but was popular a century ago. Nevertheless, it does sound much fresher and spunkier for a baby girl than it does on a baby boy. As a girl's name, it may well prove an alternative to the traditional Mary, the old-fashioned Marie (still popular as a second name), and Maria which is somewhat popular at the present time."
