I think it has a nice symmetry to it, with the 'e' and the 's' nearly matching in shape at either end. I knew a girl called Eilis for years without ever realising how her name was spelled; labouring under the impression that it was "Aylish" or similar.

It's pronounced EH-leesh, not IE-leesh!
A variant is Éilís (AY-leesh). [noted -ed]
