Isla is the most common way that name is pronounced. It depends on which country you live in or go to. About half the population in Australia would pronounce Ailsa the way you intend the other Al-sah.
People pronounce our daughters name wrong about less than half the time
Sophia instead of Saphira (we call mostly Sophie any way so it could be people assume its a nickname for Sophia). As long as you don't mind correcting people every now and then. They might just use her nick name anyway If you are going to use one.My two precious girls:

Amaré Elyse (2 years). Her name is the present infinitive of "to love" in Latin, and we pronounce it with an accent on the end, so it sounds (phonetically) like Am-uh-RAY. We love her name, and especially the sweet way she says it herself.
Job Marcellus (Born 11/6/2013). We call him Joby.
"Indeed, we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord--that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful." ~ James 5:11 ~

I love the name but I greatly prefer the Isla. My first reaction was to read Aisla as 'Ay-la'. I do think it's a beautiful name and you should use the spelling that you like.Luna ♥
