How do you pronounce Mearns, as in Sara?  I was curious, so I tried to look it up on the web, but no luck.

Like 'earn' or 'urn.' You can listen to her say it on this video. Hopefully the link will open to the "photo booth interviews" clip.

Thanks.  I sounds to me like /mərnz/ in IPA.  (I hope that comes out right in people's browsers.)

Teresa Reichlen also pronounces the names "Mearns" and "Bouder" at about 00:30 in the Swan Lake episode - perhaps differently from what most Americans would guess at.

Was watching the ESPN intro to tonight's US Open match.  As part of the intro, they focused on and filmed the arriving celebs -  Chris Biotti, Josh Groban, Taye Diggs and Sara Mearns of the New York City Ballet.  They didn't mention that Mearns was arriving with boyfriend Josh Bergasse.  I would guess that 98 percent of the ESPN audience had never heard of Mearns.
