I'm not a fan. I would have never though it was pronounced like that. I think Lyle is a lot nicer.Flynn Alexander Rory Violet Ada Florence

Actually, the Welsh double "ll" is more closely rendered in English as "cl" (and the "r" is rolled slightly), so "cleer" would be more authentic. There are a couple of examples well-pronounced on Forvo.
Personally, I love it -- if I'd had a son, it was a close contender for a middle name (but then, I live in Wales, where it's in quiet but general use and isn't an eyebrow raiser!). Rhys Ifans brother is called Llyr -- he's also an actor.

"Nook of names," I am big fan of yours and read your blog with great fascination, not to mention your book. So excited you have joined this site!
I always wanted to ask how you came to study the ancient Near East. I had a vague theory that you read ASNC at Cambridge but obviously Akkadian isn't part of that course...XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)
