    Isla: Pronunciation?

    At first thought, how would you pronounce Isla? I've heard both Eye-lah and Iz-lah. Personally I prefer Iz-lah, but I don't want my daughter to have a name that's constantly mispronounced.

    Isla is "eye-lah" but for Spanish speakers it would be "iz-lah".
    All the best,

    Thank you, I didn't know that. The pronunciation Eye-lah is actually growing on me now.. Thanks for the feedback

    The only way I would ever think is Eye-La. I think of it as a scottish name and when I see the Is I think of the world Island..silent S. I don't like Iz-Lah at all but maybe that's just b/c it's unfamiliar to me.
