USAGE: name pronunciation

Attn Rightpondians . . .

How do you pronounce the name "Gerry" - with a /g/ or with a /dZ/?  I
assume it is an alternate spelling of either "Gar[r]y" or "Jerry"; I
would guess that it is the latter and is a shortened form of "Gerald" -
under which hypothesis it would be pronounced with a /dZ/, of course.
But I seek confirmation from someone who actually knows. :)

Thanks -
