      Hello again all!

      Well we have decided at least on our heritage and are beginging to
      choose names. I like the Irish Gaelic name Aine but have no clue how
      to pronounce it, can anyone help? All the pronunciation guides I have
      found are for consants etc. I would think it would be Aye ee na or
      Aye ee nay but I really have absolutely no clue there... It could
      also be close to Anne? Anyone know?

      Thanks!

        A good friend of mine, who lives in AEthelmearc, has this name with the same
        spelling. She pronounces it "AHN-yah" (in other words, an almost Russian
        sound to it).

        Your prospective namesake has done great honor to the name: for many years,
        she has spearheaded the fundraising efforts for the Pennsic Chirurgeonate,
        raising many thousands of dollars through merchant donations to an annual
        auction and through private donations from the populace. In addition, she
        and her assistant, Lady Jenna, run the Chirurgeonate logistics and inventory
        operation (a *massive* undertaking) each year for Pennsic. Last year, while
        I was War Chirurgeon, Aine and Jenna undertook a complete re-inventory of
        every last bandage and cotton swab, saving the SCA populace over $700 by
        better tracking what we already owned.

        She's one fine lady. Carry on her name's tradition with pride and honor. :-)

            I did a lot of Pronunciation research in the past couple of days and I
            actually came up with 2 different pronunciations, one was from pre
            12th century and would be AWeenah and the other one is the way I have
            been pronouncing it AYnah (which is very close to how your friend
            pronounces it without the russian sound). Interesting that she is a
            Chirugeon, since I am a modern day paramedic LOL. Maybe I will meet
            her at a Pennsic someday!

            So sign me
