Irish name pronunciation?

My husband is wanting to name our son Éibhir. I just want to clarify that that proper pronunciation of this name would be Ay-vur. Thanks!

    Yes, though it's slightly more like Ev-eer. The Éi is used in Éire, the Irish name for Ireland, which is pronounced air-eh. Bh is the v sound. The "ir" can be 'ur' or 'eer' depending on accent.
