Pronunciation of Aileen

The pronunciation has of two variants. Aileen is the Scottish spelling of the name Eileen, and was originally pronounced the same (I-LEAN). People of Scottish decent still pronounce it this way. The name is also pretty common in Latino cultures, where it is also pronounced I-LEAN. Whites of non-Scottish European descent are the ones who say A-LEAN.

The name is of Irish Gaelig/Scottish Gallic origin and is pronounced EYE-LEAN. None of this AY-LEAN nonsense. Go to Ireland and be laughed at.

Pronunciation of Aileen

This is my name and my family comes from the far western side of Ireland. The name has been in our family for generations and we pronounce it neither A-Leen or I-leen, but like "AL-een or AL-leen" almost.

A- soft A, like the beginning of alligator

Actually basically leave off the 'igator' and replace it with the 'een' sound.

Usually I just tell people it's like Ali/Allie/Ally with an N at the end.

I know it's not the typical way of pronouncing it, but we've been doing so for generations.

Pronunciation of Aileen in County Tyrone, Ireland

My name is Aileen and I come from the North of Ireland, and I personally get annoyed when my name is pronounced as Eileen. If someone as an 'ailment' they don't pronounce that with an 'eye' sound so why would they in this case? I pronounce my name as it is written- ail-een. Think of 'fail' when the f is removed, or 'wail' when the w is removed. In my case it is also the 'ail' part of the name that is stressed, not the 'leen'.

Pronunciation of Aileen in Scotland

I am born and bred in Scotland and this Scottish name is mine. It is NOT pronounced the same as Eileen and nothing irritates me more than people who say it is. It is pronounced as it appears: ‘Ail’ rhyming with ‘tail’. And the stress is on the ‘Ail’ rather than the ‘leen’.
