I've seen "Erne" in so many crosswords and never in real life. "Ewer" is another one like that.

Go to the mall. American Eagle has stores called Aerie. Or just do crossword puzzles. It's the only way I've ever seen it spelled.

I've only ever known eyrie - maybe it's a US/British spelling difference thing? Maybe offer A/E as the starting letter and accept both?

I only know eyrie but haven't seen it used in crosswords before, or at least not frequently, so I don't think it fits here. Haven't seen aerie used in crosswords either but assume it's a common American clue.

Yes, very easy for regular crossword enthusiasts. I got them all with 2:50 to go. Took a few extra seconds to get Esse and Lanai.

Some of them are common in the UK. And with the US having 5 times our population, I expect US crosswords are more common in the world.

I thought the "I"'s were "L"'s at the top of the second column and it threw me off - my own fault as there is an "L" farther down..
