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.http://www.amazon.com/Angel-Blackwood/e/B00SARZLFY -- My Amazon Author Page
