Love, love, love the name Ainsley! One of my DD's name choices was Ainsley Elisabeth ....
I love Scottish and Irish names ... I think they're super cool. I like Ainsley better because I like the "long a" sound better.
Spring Break 2014
RiverSong82: WashingtonQueen:Dislike both.This exactly.
magsugar13:anal ease is all i hear no matter how you spell it....can you imagine the torture?
DH and I still have issues not laughing when we see our niece, Annalise.
Both are bad. Ainsley if you must.
Totally disagree with all, we LOVE them both. We went with Ansley, but spelled it Anslea - the Lea is my middle name.
DH liked Ainsley better than Ansley, but since we spelled it with the lea, I liked the spelling better with Anslea. DD is Anslea Grace H...
I love that its different.

Our friends have an Ainsley and they actually pronounce it Annslee.
I find them both a little awkward to say, but out of those too, I prefer Ainsley.
tdenen:I love Ainsley!!! I know a little Ainsley Elizabeth and she's the cutest!!
Am I the only one who says this differently? For Ansley I pronounce Annsley, which I strongly dislike.
I would say them differently too.
Ainsley = Ayn-slee
Ansley = Ann-slee
I prefer Ainsley...although I kind of like what one PP mentioned...Anslea (with the Ann-slee) pronunciation.
TyrinM03:I love Ainsley :)
I think you are thinking of "Annalise/Annaliese" . I can't see how someone would hear "Ains -Lee" and think "anal ease" - they sound literally nothing alike.
