Eireann is a Gaelic word meaning "Western Isle" (referring to Ireland). The name Erin is derived from this.

I love this name. It's a cute spelling. I don't imagine that anybody here would mispronounce it (anybody in Ireland, I mean). It's one of my favourites.

I have never seen this name spelled like this before. I prefer it spelled like this, I think if you're going to give your child an Irish name you should spell it in the Irish way.

I prefer Eireann over Erin. It sounds much more beautiful and poetic.

There always seems to be a lot of confusion between the pronunciation differences of Eireann, Erin, and Aaron. Eireann is pronounced ER-in (with "ER" sounding like air and "in" sounding like bin or pin). Erin is pronounced E-rin (with "E" sounding like bet or pet and "rin" sounding like bin or pin). Aaron is pronounced A-rin (with "A" sounding like bat or cat and "rin" sounding like bin or pin). This said, these pronunciations are based on a Northeastern American accent.

I love the spelling! It's so much cooler than Erin and it looks feminine and sweet.

My name is actually Erin, but I prefer this spelling better. However, I would most likely pronounce it differently for a couple reasons. 1: I think it sounds better. And 2: I want it to sound different from Erin. I would say it Ehr-ee-ann. Sorry, those of you from Ireland. If it makes things better I pronounce every other one of your guys' names correctly.

Erin( Irish ), also has had the meaning of "peace ".
I remember reading it (15 years ago) in a book of baby names and their meanings. Cannot recall the title of the book.
