    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.

    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.
    Considering...
    Cordelia Eilonwy Snow ● Evadne Undomiel Snow ● Isabeau Sophronia Blanche ● Lorelei Nimue Ondine
    Pandora Vivienne Swan ● Thisbe Octavia Wildrose ● Thora Ilythia Swan

    ●●● ●●● ●●●
    Caspian Ithuriel Wilder ● Damian Rainer Sparrow ● Evander Ithuriel Sol
    Gwydion Alaric Hart ● Malachi Tristan Bjorn ● Phineas Robin Blaise ● Theodore Peregrine Llyr

    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.

    Me too, I'm thinking about Aether too. Or anything Airy.

    I like the way it sounds.

    probably Eris, the goddess


    Aeris spelling is ok because its still pronounceable but:

    Eirys is horrible, makes everything about this name even more difficult, spell it Eris
