Gender: F Pronunciation: ay-lee Meaning of Eilidh: "sun, radiant one" Origin of Eilidh: Gaelic

Long popular in Scotland, this attractive name is widely considered to be the Gaelic version of Helen. After the Normans introduced it into the British Isles, it was transformed into Evelyn. It has rarely been heard in the U.S., where the spelling would be sure to cause endless pronunciation problems -- it's ay-lee.
