Just saw that a distant friend of mine was tagged in pictures with a baby girl, her goddaughter so it seems, whose name is Aril. My first thought when I read it was that mother must have spelt Ariel without the -e- by mistake up until I realised Aril is her actual name. I have never heard it before and my first thought was what a strange name. At second thought I found it quite interesting though I'm not sure I'm even pronouncing it right.
How would you pronounce Aril? Is it EH-ryll (with an american A as in arrow, not sure how to spell it out), AH-ryll (like the British A) or AY-ryll? Or something completely different? Can you tell me anything about this name? Do you like this name?
I'm still not sure whether I love this name or hate it, but thought it could be something interesting for the middle name spot...
