I've asked this question before, but I don't recall seeing a response.
I just want to avoid making an arse of myself by mispronouncing names
when discussing B5 with others. (F'r instance, I just found out that
Majel Barret's first name has the accent on the second syllable -- and this
after 20 years of mispronouncing it "Madge-el"!)  So, please clue me in
on the proper way to say:

1.Peter Jurasik's surname?  Looks to me like it could be "Jurassic," or
"yurassik" or "yurAHSeek," for example.

2.Mira Furlan's first name -- "myra" or "meera?"

And while we're at it,

3. Is Tom (Zathras) Choate's name pronounced "chote" or "chotie"?
