I'm still trying to work out if that first syllable is meant to be pronounced to rhyme with "day" or with "eye." That's going to make a pretty big difference.

Yes like "day"


Then how about "Éada" as Lugaidh suggested above.

It's pronounced like "eye" in Connachta and Munster.


I know that. But we were attempting a phonetic Irish rendering without being clear as to how the name "Ayda" is pronounced. That's what I was attempting to clarify.
