As someone named Shanna, pronounced Shawna, I'd say change it! I love my unique name, but have been called Sheh-na for so many years, I am a fan of easy phonetics! I wouldn't know how to pronounce the Iyla spelling offhand. And if you do it now, she'll never know or have to adjust later... I say this as I tried the umlaut over the first ä for a while in grade school--that did NOT catch on (I'm not even sure now that it was correct)!
