As the title says...how would you spell this name please?
I know someone with it but don't like the spelling they use so an looking for an alternative...

The name, phonetically, is:

Eye-liss

Ilys

P1nkP0ppy Tue 26-Jul-16 17:24:41

Aylys?

Ilyse or Elysse?

Ayliss

Ilys too

Eyeliss™ helps prevent and fight bags under eyes. It is a combination of 3 active molecules: hesperidin methyl chalcone that decreases the capillary permeability, dipeptide VW that increases lymphatic circulation and lipopeptide Pal-GQPR that improves firmness and elasticity and decreases inflammatory phenomena

No idea how you would spell it any other way.

Ilys.

Ayliss

Eilish - it's an Irish name

Alisvolatpropiis Tue 26-Jul-16 17:29:40

Ayrlis

Joskar Tue 26-Jul-16 17:29:58

Ailish

Upthetree100 Tue 26-Jul-16 17:30:18

Ayliss

longdiling Tue 26-Jul-16 17:30:38

Eirlys. That's a Welsh name

TreeBird16 Tue 26-Jul-16 17:30:49

Or it can be spelled Eilís

Luckystar1 Tue 26-Jul-16 17:30:52

As with Treebird or Eilis. But I'd pronounce it aa-lish rather than eye-lish...

DocMcFanjo Tue 26-Jul-16 17:31:05

Eilish has a soft "shhh" at the end. If it were Irish I'd go Eilis but if not then Ilys or Eylis.

feckthemall Tue 26-Jul-16 17:32:06

Tree bird if it was the Irish name Eilish the phonetic spelling would by eye lish?

Doilooklikeatourist Tue 26-Jul-16 17:32:53

Eirlys

lljkk Tue 26-Jul-16 17:34:10

Ayliss. But Alice is nicer, imho.

AdamantEve Tue 26-Jul-16 17:34:15

The person I know who has this name spells it Ilys.
I think looking at these written down, I prefer Ilyse. Although it would probably be mispronounced forever more.
Not pregnant currently, just thinking ahead in case I add to my brood and I really like this name, I had never heard it until recently

Ilys would be pronounced "ccchliss" to me, with that guttural Welsh sound

Is it even a name?

doing Tue 26-Jul-16 17:39:50

I think Ilyse is an unpronounceable mess.

Daisygarden Tue 26-Jul-16 17:43:39

Adamant If I saw Ilyse, I would assume the pronunciation phonetically would be Eye-Leese. Not Eye-liss. But also, I would ponder over whether Ilyse should be ILL-Leese (used capitals as Ill is harder to read) smile

Eye-Leese sounds very pretty and possibly softer than Ilys.
