    Anglicizing "Airmid"

    Airmid, in Irish mythology, was a healing goddess, one of the Tuatha Dé Danann. With her father, Dian Cecht, and brother, Miach, she healed those injured in the Second Battle of Magh Tuiredh.
    As beautiful a name as Airmid is in its original form, I really need help anglicizing it, similar to how Brighid becomes Bridget(te).

    Any suggestions?

    How do you pronounce it? Looking online I've found several options, from "ahr-midge" to "ehr-he-me".

    Anyways, Airmid doesn't seem to have a standard anglicised form (or to be common in Ireland).
    Bertrand -bertie-, Wilfred, Léon, Axel, Cuthbert -cubby-, Maxentius, Aubrey, Phoebus, John-Henry.
    Émilienne, Livia, Annabella -abbey-, Maud, Rosamund, Kimborough, Clemency, Elizabeth-Charlotte.

    I'm also unsure of the pronunciation - I've never heard of this name before. I love the connection to Irish mythology however.

    Ignatius - Jasper - Hugo - Edmund - Henry - Oliver - Rupert - Felix - Percy - August - Atticus - Amias - Otto - Barnaby - Arthur - Ezra - Hector - Charles
    Antigone - Hermione - Harriet - Cordelia - Violet - Persephone - Beatrice/Beatrix - Clementine - Ottilie - Florence - Octavia - Drusilla - Agnes - Ida - Matilda - Xanthe

    Here, the word January is being pronounced in Gaelic. The 'air' ending is apparently 'arr' < That's how you say the 'mid' part. Kind of like a smoosh of 'met/mut/mot'

    Together these would make the pronunciation of Airmid = 'arr-met'. Therefore, Armet/Ahmet/Aremet would mostly likely be the closest you could write Airmid in English.

    I second Renrose suggestion, Armet/Aremet would be your best bet
