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.

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.Raquel-22 year old who loves names, books, and languages
