You are reading far too much into a language that has been "approximated" into English. We don't actually know if the word sounded like "murrrr" or "mir" or "maer" or "maour" or "mor" or "meor" or "maouer" or a thousand other variants... because we don't have the actual language sounds and for the most part they left off vowels and used ideograms to differentiate between "maier" and "mar".
