Eirian would work. I *think * it's beginning is pronounced the same way. It has always been on my list of MN but I would definitely use it as a first. Irie is a cute NN too.
Irene is legit. Irina, Irini, Mhairi, Viridis (italian renaiisance),eirin (old norse), Mairin, Irisa can be checked out too.

If it's pronounced Ay-ree-an there would be a connotation to the Aryan brotherhood. (not the exact same pronunciation but close enough for comfort)I like distinct, memorable, exotic and preferably non-popular names. The kids with unique names wore them so well when I was younger and never got lost in the crowd.

Zadie Smith's novel White Teeth features a girl named Irie. Incidentally, the girl's Jamaican grandmother thinks Irie is a terrible name. :-)
I do think Irie can stand on its own, but could also be a nickname for Irene or Irena/Irena (though I always default to EE-ree-na for Irina). I don't think Isadora works that well since it doesn't have the "eye" sound at the beginning.Estella ~ Helena ~ Miriam ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Ruby ~ Ivy ~ MarillaPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Martin ~ Edmund ~ Fraser ~ Alexander
