    Eela, Eala, or Elah

    I want it pronounced Ee-la. I have found multiple spellings but the main spelling is Ila. I am trying to avoid mispronunciation and made up spellings that look ignorant.

    Eela and Eala do not look appealing to the eye. Elah isn't I'd go for but of the three options, it's my favorite. I greatly prefer Ila for the spelling.

    Eela makes me think of eels, and Eala looks like it should be "ee-ah-la." Elah looks like a misspelling of Ella. I would stick to Ila.
