I like this name. It's sweet. I have always wondered if Chinese names can be Japanese too, but I have never heard a Chinese name on a Japanese girl or boy and also vice versa, so I guess it's not possible, but either way, I still like this name, and I'm pretty sure this is only a girl's name, and that is the only gender I would even consider using it on is a little girl. I can't picture a little boy with this name, but who knows? Maybe it's possible, maybe it's not. But oh well, I like it for a little girl.

This is so sweet. Close to my own name, Siri, but I find this prettier.

There are multiple other kanji possibilities to go with this name. Kind of a more recent name rather than an old standard.

Miyavi Ishihara's daughter (born July 29, 2009) has this name as her Japanese name! ^_^

Something more about Miyavi's daughter's name: her name is actually Lovelie (from the English word "lovely"), but it is written with the same characters as Airi - 愛理. 愛 means "love" and 理 means "reason". Usually, foreign words and names in Japanese are written in katakana, but I guess Miyavi and Melody wanted their daughter's name to have a literal meaning in kanji. Normally, 愛理 would be read as "Airi". And Japanese people find the English words "love" and "lovely" very hard to pronounce - the closest sounds they have are "rabu" and "raburi". I really hope Miyavi can pronounce English well, so her name actually sounds like "Lovely" when he says it, not "Raburi". :)

Japanese pronunciation: ah-EE-ree, or AH-ee-ree
English pronunciation (the one that flows the most should an English-speaker say the name): IE-ree.

Pronounced eye-ree.

If used in nickname-form-- "Airi" is unbelievably tender and sweet. While, yes, it may have it's roots as Japanese I find it acceptable to use in other cultures (diminutive, of course). I certainly would consider it as a shortened everyday call of the Italian "Aurelia." The pronunciation... Perhaps I would Italian-ize it to "Ah-Ee-Ree"? A simple "Air-Ee" could function, though.
