- Comments and insights on the name Éilís: | Edit
I am Irish and living in Ireland and my name is Elizabeth. In the Irish language my name is "Eilis" or "Eilish". Both are pronounced "EYE LEESH" and NOT "Ay lish" There should be a "fada" on top of the "E" and on top of the second "i" in Eilis (as in the way it's written in the header) which elongates the "E" to "Eye" and the 2nd "i" to "ee" if you understand what I mean, but I can't find any on my computer, to put them in....... Also, the "s" at the end is pronounced as "sh". Hence "Eilis" or "Eilish" is pronounced "Eye Leesh" in the Irish language.....
My middle name is Éilís and it's pronounced ay-lish I guess it's just however you prefer to pronounce it.
