Eylee vs. Eylie vs. Iylie/Iylee

What do you think of these spellings for the pro. or eye-lee? My mom says with having the spelling Ey people might pronounce it like eye. WDYT? We are having a really hard time with this. I guess if we can’t find a good spelling we will just have to go with something else. Please help us! Thank you all again!

Eylee or Eylie looks like Ay to me, as in Aydra or Ayla.
THink about other names that have that sound.
Eileen,Eira, Eilyn, Eiryn...
Why not Eiley?
I can also see Isley - like Isle or Isla.

I love Eiley, but people of this site said that people would pronounce it e-lee! So I don’t know what to do?

How would you pronounce Ailey pp?

People will say it how you say it. If they pn it wrong, just correct them.

I would go with Eiley - love it!

I think my favorites are Ailey and Eylee. If you love the name just use it and correct people if they pronounce it wrong. My daughter’s name is Corinne and occasionally people pronounce it Coreen.. just politely correct them and go about your business. Once you tell them once they won’t forget.

I think if you spell it with an "Isl" beginning, people will figure out it’s pronouced "Ile"
Eiley might be pronounced Eeley, but might also be pronounced Eye-lee. It’s has a much better shot of being pronounced correctly that spelling it Ailey.
If you decide to give up on this name all together, another very similar sounding name is Ivy and it’s adorable!

Thank you so much for all of your advice! We have decided to go with Eiley Claire. We figure that we might have to correct people at first but eventually they will catch on! Thanks again for all of your help!
