Eirene is Greek for "peace."

I've heard various pronunciations for it depending on your accent:
eye-REEN-ee
Ee-REEN-ee
Eh-REN-ee
(my personal favorite)

WDYT?

If pronounced Eh-RENN-ee, then I think it's very pretty!! It's different, but still beautiful!

Bumping this, cause I want opinions, and all the older threads have moved it to the next page.

I love this name. I guess it helps the one person I know who has this name is really, really pretty and sweet as can be! I like it pronounced Eh-REEN-ee the best...then Eh-REN-ee. I think she pronounces it Ear-eenie.

I thought it looked like EYE-ren-eh, I kinda like it like that but it does make me think of Irony.

I do not like it at all. I feel it has such an old feeling to it.
