I would pronounce this as "AY-mer", or, in the original version (Éimhear), "AY-ver".

I have heard it's pronounced EE-ver, but I could be wrong.

Here in Cork, Ireland it's EE-mur.

All over Ireland it is pronounced EE-mur; the Anglicized name does not need to have the same pronunciation as the original.

No offense but it sounds to much like a nickname for someone named Emma or Emmett. (Or I'm just being biased since I call my cousin Emma "Emers")

The meaning is stereotypical. It's saying that all girls have to be pretty to be successful. Bleh. And it sounds pretty repulsive too- the correct pronunciation, anyway.

And what is wrong with the meaning? It simply means "swift", nothing else. How could it say that girls have to be pretty to be successful?

No, the meaning "swift" is cool, but I mean the history behind the name.

I really wouldn't use it. I live in the Netherlands, and 'emmer' means 'bucket' in Dutch. But, if your native language is English, this name is fine.

It rhymes with lemur.
Lovely meaning though.

Could also undoubtedly be pronounced as ə-mer. Presumably as a nickname to names such as Emery, Emmett, Emerson, Emma, Emily, Emmeline, Emelia and so forth. I prefer it better for a boy though.

Beautiful and feminine on a girl, but awful and ugly on a boy.
