The most likely pronunciation would drop the "a" at the beginning. Yes so
Milly is a good one, also Meela, Melia maybe even Molly. No real variants
on the surname as far as pronunciation goes, except that Cockneys do odd
things with consonants and so the "F" wouldn't be very distinct. The name
might have been enumerated or recorded as Vearn.
