    Eira

    I saw the name Eira today and I was wondering how do you pronounce it?

    From what I've heard, Ay-ra or EYE-ra, depending on what part of Wales you're in. I love this name. The 'r' is sort of rolled.

    Technically yes, but if you're going by traditional Welsh pronunciation it should be 'ay-ra' as the diphthong 'ei' is pronounced 'ay'. 'ai' is 'eye'.
