How to pronounce Éibhear?

I have seen it pronounced both as “ay-vur” and “ee-vur “ but want to know if there is a proper way. Also if Éibhir would be pronounced the same way as well.

    It's Ay-vur spelled like that, the accent on the e elongates the vowel to make it an ay sound instead of an ee sound. Without that accent it would be pronounced ee-vur, like the name Eimear which is pronounced ee-mur
