No, the first syllable IS pronounced like 'Ash.' Educate yourself before correcting others who are much more likely to know what they're talking about.

It's pronounced Ash-lin or Ash-leen because it's GAELIC. I hate people pronouncing it wrong. Why would you think ASS-lyn would be a cute name? Oh, and spelling it Aislyn would seem ignorant, as there is no Y in the Gaelic language.

It is DEFINITELY not pronounced EYES-lin. This is a gross mispronunciation stemming from ignorance of the name's origins and just makes the parent look uneducated. This is an Irish name pronounced ASH-ling or ASH-lin. EYES-lin is just an attempted English pronunciation based on our English phonetics and is simply wrong.

I just named my daughter Aislyn. We pronounce it Ash-lyn. The 's' is Gaelic and sounds like 'sh' like the actor Sean Connery. My in-laws visited Ireland last year and researched the origin and pronunciation. We are pronouncing it correctly, although the correct spelling is Aisling meaning vision or dream.

It's definitely ASH-lin. Pronouncing it Ays-lin is ALWAYS wrong, and it's just sacrilege, proving that the bearer does not even know the basics of the Irish language. I know there are various ways of spelling it, but aisling is a vocabulary word, it's best to spell it with the "g", and it is not uncommon, and certainly not wrong to pronounce the "g". Sorry, but I'm not one of those people who will let you pronounce it whatever way you want. There are a few different ways of pronouncing it in Ireland, depending on where you live, but the first syllable is always ASH-, because of the pronunciation rules of the Irish language.
