I’ve been hesitating posting about this because I think I know what most of you will say!
Anyway, I’ve fallen deeply in love with the name Eilonwy (eye-[name]LON[/name]-wee). It’s the name of a favorite character in a book by [name]Lloyd[/name] [name]Alexander[/name], and my husband loves it too. It’s vaguely Welsh although it was actually invented by the author.
I know it’s pretty out there and if we had the guts to use this as a first name, we would call her [name]Eila[/name] (like [name]Isla[/name]). I’ve loved [name]Isla[/name] for a long time but my hubby hates it. He’s fine with using Eilonwy and calling her [name]Eila[/name] though!
What are your thoughts?
