I found the name Aella whilst browsing BtN and thought it was interesting. It is a girls name from Greek mythology meaning ‘whirlwind’ and was the name of an Amazon warrior. From what I can find, it is pronounced AY-la, though I thought it might be ay-EL-a at first. How would you pronounce it/what would you say is the correct prnunciation? What do you think of the name?
For interest’s sake, the similar Ælla was the name of a 9th century Northumbrian king.
