Worried about pronunciation....
After seriously striking out with names and feeling consistently frustrated with my search I have fallen deeply in love with the name Isla (eye-lah) but am fearful that it will be consistently mispronounced and she will be called Iz-luh, which, clearly is not what I am going for. What are your opinions on the pronunciation- how common is it here in the states? I know that it is very popular in Europe, especially Scotland where it is spelled Islay, though Isla itself is Spanish. It is one of the few girls names that both my husband and I have agreed upon and with him being hispanic we loved that it was a traditional name! He comes from such a large family that it has been near impossible to find a beautiful, unique girls name that is not the same or strikingly similar to another family member. Our other top choice was Aiyana which I still love but find that I am not one hundred percent on it- it is gorgeous but might just be a little too unique for the liking of both my husband and I. Any opinions on this name would be very much appreciated!! Please help!
