Gender: F Origin of Eilis: Irish variation of Elizabeth Meaning of Elizabeth: Hebrew, "pledged to God"

Interesting, but far too susceptible to pronunciation problems. The first syllable is the same as Eileen's, and the second is lish rhyming with tish -- eye-lish. Popular in medieval times, it is still used in Ireland. Eilish, Eillish and Eibhlis are alternate forms.
