Well your cousin's friend pronounces it wrong. It's ASH-ling, not some other tryndee monstrosity.

Pronounced ASHLIN not ASHLING.

People it's not pronounced ASH-ling. The G is silent. It's ASH-lin.

I've done a lot of research on this name, and it is NOT rare to pronounce it ASH-ling (with the G), and it is certainly not wrong. This is a misconception caused by the very different phonetics in the English language compared to Irish Gaelic. American/English variants of the name either drop the G in the pronunciation or from the spelling, but this is not the case in Ireland where the name comes from. Just Google "Aisling pronunciation" and then turn on your speakers and listen to the many Irish name sites that provide auditory examples of the name.

My name is Aislinn. It is pronounced Ash-leen. And that is the proper, Irish way. Also, when spelled Aisling, the 'ing' sound isn't usually said it is usually still 'leen'.

THE pronunciation, regardless of THE spelling is, and always was
Ashleen.

I live in Ireland and this is pronounced Ash-ling. Ayz-ling is horrible. I also know people who pronounce it Ash-linn and that way is spelt Aislinn not Aisling.

My name is Aisling and I'm an Irish speaker and different people pronounce it different ways. Some call me "Ash-leen" others call me "Ash-ling". Doesn't bother me. But "Ais" in Irish is "ash"!
