How do I say it?

I've lived here my entire life and I'm just now starting to hear people say the names of two big streets in San Francisco waaaaaaay different than I've ever heard them said before. (Yay for long sentences.)

The streets are: Geary and Kearny.

I've always said them as Gear-ee and Kern-ee. Now I'm hearing them said as Gary and Keer-nee.

Does anyone know which way is correct? I wouldn't be at all surprised if I'd been saying them wrong for the past 26 years.
