What do you think about the name Ainsley? Do you think people know how to pronouce it, or would it get mispronouced all the time?

I'm never sure myself how it's supposed to be said - is it ayns-lee or eyens-lee? Either way I don't like it. There's something childish and almost whiney about it to my ears.

I like it, it's kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. I don't think it would get mispronounced a lot.

I like it ok, but don't LOVE it. It's more of an indifference. I find it somewhat boring.

I really love the name Ainsley and don't think too many people would have problems pronouncing it. I think Brinlee and Ainsley go great together.

I know a little girl named Ainsley..they pronounce is En-sley..I think it sounds horrible! I like it pronounced the other way.

Ainsley is another that was on our list...but our neighbor has a 5 year old named Ainsley and we didn't want to use the same name. I have never had a hard time pronouncing it. I also like Aisling.
