Comments for EALASAID:

Hmmm, it looks strangely like a diminutive of "eala", which is Gaelic for "swan". It's pretty, though. It's pronounced "EL-a-saj".

I used this name for a character in a short-story I wrote for school - but that character was male. I had thought I made Ealasaid up myself (silly me!), but couldn't figure out why it seemed so familiar, while I had just been looking at it earlier that day. It's just lucky that my teacher knew nothing of names, or else he might've questioned me on why I named my tyrannical, evil, male character, in essence, Elizabeth. Anyways, I like this name a lot. It's very mystical and quite pretty. I'd rather see girls with this as a middle name than the overused Elizabeth.

I can hear the American public school teacher saying, "Ok, ee-la-sed, your turn to read." Sorry. Fact is, if you want people in the US to call your child Elasajh, you'll just have to spell it like that (or something similar).

Do you really think everybody visiting this site is American? Sorry, but there are more nationalities out there. And thousands of other languages than English. There is a country called Scotland where some people speak Scottish Gaelic and to them Ealasaid isn't hard to pronounce.

No offense to anyone named Ealasaid. But to me, it seems like eel-said. To me, a name that will always have an initial attached to it, however much I dislike that, is far better than a name that lends itself to teasing like this name.

This name is pronounced ee-AH-luh-sich. Gaelic has some very different letter sounds than English does. The alternative pronunciation of ay-LAH-sayd is an anglicized version.
