Any suggestions as to the 1850 Cockney pronunciation of the following

Amelia FEARN

Variants I've seen of the last name include: FERN, FERNE, FURN, and
perhaps FARON. But what about the first name? Could a pronunciation
variant include Mary? Amelia came from Bethnal Green to the US in 1849
or 1850. I'm trying to locate her in the 1850 census.

Thanks for any suggestions.
