It should be mentioned that in modern Hebrew Ayelet is a decline of Ayala (Gazelle) which means "Ayala of...". Ayelet is also originated from the phrase "Ayelet Ahavim" (Gazelle of love) from Proverbs 5:19.

Such a lovely, soft, feminine name, I'd use it for my daughter - and I'm not even Jewish. I met a very warm, motherly Israeli woman named Ayelet once. Makes me think of white eyelet lace. I pronounce it like Violet without the V, three syllables.

Personally, I pronounce it "eye-YELL-iht", such as "I yell it". Perhaps it's not the "correct" pronunciation (putting the "y" in the second syllable), but it's how I can best say it as an English speaker. This is a much more accurate pronunciation than "eyelet".

"Ayelet Chen" is a traditional song of the Jews of Yemen, popularized by the famous Israeli singer Ofra Haza in her 1984 album "Yemenite Songs". The lyrics are by Rabbi Shalom Shabazi (1619-1720).

It reminds me of eyelet. Pretty name, pretty meaning, it's just all around pretty.
