No doubt this name works fine in Hungary - but to my English eye, it seems too much like Ebola - a fatal disease that has no cure. I'd be happy if somebody knew how to pronounce the name correctly, and the correlation I listed above can be eradicated in my mind!

Yeah that's just what I thought. As soon as I saw it I thought of Ebola. It looks very similar.

It's pronunced correctly as "EE-BOH-YAH". It's a nice, common name in Hungary, and lots of famous Hungarian women bear this name.

Sorry, but I saw Ebola as well...

Though I'm sure it's a pretty name in Hungary!
