艾立荪 or 爱丽荪

I proposed two answers. They sound quite alike (both are phonetically written as "ai li sun". They differ because:
the first, 艾立荪 (ai li sun) is better suited as a last name, or as a masculine frist name, for all three characters are are usually seen as names for women.
while the second, 爱丽荪 (also ai li sun) has two characters (the first two)that appears mostly or more often in female given names than in given names for men or boys. The first character 爱 means literally "love" and the second 丽 means "beauty or beautiful."
