    Eilidh

    I love Eilidh (ay-lee) but I live in the states, there might be issues with spelling and pronunciation.

    The pronunciation will be butchered in the US. It's not a complicated pronunciation, but I don't think people will read Eilidh as ay-lee. If you really love it I would keep it for a middle name.

    Im from Australia and at a glance i thought the name was pronounced similar to Edith but with an L... like Elidith... or Eli-ith... yeah it'll get butchered- is there other accepted spelling variations? otherwise i like the sound and look of the name.

    I'm not usually a fan of changing spellings to accommodate a different nationality, but what about Eili? It's only taking off the last two letters, not butchering the spelling entirely. I did know how to pronounce it but that's only because I had seen it before, and I definitely think she'd have a lot of problems with her name being spelled wrong.

    It is a nice name but it would be problematic here. . I think most people would assume that is similar to Edith.
