    From my reasearch, there's 2 ways as Northern and Southern Wales seem to have slightly different prns. 'eye-rah' or 'ay-rah' (the 'ay' rhyming with bay).

    There's also the Swedish/Finnish pronunciation 'air-ah'. Eira is the goddess of medicine in Sweden.

    I would most likely say (ear-uh). Maybe (eye-ruh)

    Thanks everyone! Its a real beauty, isn't it? I was actually looking at it for a friend's baby but its now on my own list. I love the Norse connection and the Welsh 'snow' meaning is so utterly romantic.

    AY-ra is correct if you're being a stickler for proper Welsh pronunciation. The people in the north would say the people in the south are saying it wrong
