    Eirlys

    What do you think of this name? It means snowdrop. I love it.

    It is pronounced EYE-ER-LISS

    I really like it. But then I'm biased because I adore Welsh names :)

    I really should prefer the EYR-liss pronunciation as this is the South Wales prn from where my grandfather hailed. However, I tend to go more for the North Wales AYR-liss instead.

    Not a fan. I am all for different but do you really want you or your daughter to have to pronounce the name to everyone she meets. plus it sounds like eyeless.

    I am not a fan of names like this. I think im to literal for names to be spelled diffrently then they are pronounced, so most welsh and scottish names are a little wird to me. I never understood how that was supposed to say what the pornouncition is
