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".

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