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.

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..

Oh it's 'cause US crosswords use up all the spaces in the grid, even though they end up full of silly little words that even the setter didn't know...
