This was the name of a sword in The Faelin Chronicles!
I heard the pronunciation in a video on Youtube. It sounds more like ay-ree-on.
Also means "bright, beautiful.'' I'm not sure about the pronunciation.
This is beautiful.
In Wales, this is a girl's name pronounced "ay-ree-an" and a boy's name pronounced "eye-ree-an" as far as I know. I like it for a boy.
