Eilah (rather than Isla)
I saw the name that is traditionally spelt 'Isla', spelt Eilah the other day... WDYT?? I like that spelling a lot better

Re: Eilah (rather than Isla)
Hm.. I dunno. Isla is the feminine version of Islay, which an actual island. Changing the spelling doesn't really work for me. If it was just a random name I could probably go for it.. but it's a "real" name - it take makes sense. I couldn't change the spelling of India, either.

Re: Eilah (rather than Isla)
I prefer the original spelling. i think it looks prettier. also, even though i know that your spelling says isla, i keep reading your spelling as E-lah.

Isla is beautiful. Eilah is... meh.

Re: Eilah (rather than Isla)
I'm not a fan of that spelling. The only other spelling I'd consider is Ayla....which would probably still get pronounced A-lah.

I reallllly prefer Isla! At first I thought it was pronounced ee-lie-uh ... but then I figured it out :)

No where near as sophisticated looking imo.

I'm not a fan of "made up" spellings.
