How do you pronounce Aeire? It's a lovely name but I never know quite how to say it. My two main guesses were "Air" and "Airy" but I have a habit of getting these things wrong.
How the heck do you pronounce your name? It's really unusual.


...this is probably the thing I'm asked the most really. For the record and to put it to rest with however many people that are reading this blog, it's 'eyeree'. Or 'ayeree', whichever looks more phoenetically correct to you. Oh, and please, no 'jamaica' cracks, or marijuana cracks - it's not where it came from, it's not what it means, and I swear I've heard them all. Really.

It wasn't an earth shattering question, but I like to get names right. It's a simple thing, but it seems like a good way to show my respect.

Again, many thanks!

What DOES it mean? I know Eire was an irish goddess, and that it's another name for ireland and that it's the root for Erin. Is the a in front just for fun O.o?

(I know the rootwords curtesy of being named Erin, eheh.)

I think it's a preeety name....What does it mean? And I figured it was Irish, or at least of Celtic descent.

Correct me if I'm wrong (It was the 'Jamaican' bit that clued me in), but
if you put the word "eye" folowed by "ree" (long e sound).
Or saying the letters I, R, E... (kinda fast and slurred together)
Does that help?
