In Ireland, this is the most common spelling of this name. Is it pronounced /OSH leeng/ or /ASH ling/ and is an Irish vocabulary word meaning 'dream; vision.' It was first used as a name in the late 1800s. Its popularity stems from the fact that aisling also refers to a type of poem or song in which Ireland is characterized by a beautiful girl in distress (see songs "Eileen McMahon," and "Róisín Dubh" [Dark Rosaleen]).
