I like the spelling Eirys too... I hadn't thought of the goddess connection, not very attractive qualities I suppose. I am generally attracted to Ae- names and names that end in -s. I love the way it sounds, but I wouldn't use a name that doesn't have a strong history as a name and some meaning behind it.My cherished daughter, Rowan Jane. ~b. 10/2011~

It's pretty, isn't it? I just discovered it today, too, from dantea's post. I haven't searched extensively yet, but it's apparently Latin for air or atmosphere. It reminds me of Artemis and Damaris, but... airier. There's also Eirlys, Welsh I think. That's IRE-liss though, maybe. I'm not sure. I prefer the air sound. And Charis. Anais. Lots of pretty, rare (in the US at least) names that sound similar.Biαηcα ωiηifre∂ Sησω ● Lσreℓei Oη∂iηe ● Octαviα єoωƴη Sσℓ ● ℘etrα Leσcα∂iα Siℓver ● Ƭɦisbe ωiℓ∂rσse

I used it in a book. From my own sources, it's Latin possibly meaning wind or something to do with Air. It reminds me of Aether, the Greek god of the upper air and light.Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^ Call me Dantea or Remy
