I know women with the name "Eilidh" which I think is pronounced the same as "Eyelid".
I see you're from Spain, so not sure what airline you used, but with most airlines in the US you have a day or so to cancel without penalty. I think Air France or KLM might also have this but I'm not 100% sure. Check to see if this is an option, and then hopefully you can start again from scratch.
Airlines usually let you change the name on the ticket if you've booked online, OP should be able to do this if they try and update it soon enough, otherwise OP should call the airline and get it fixed. I think they only charge if you're changing who the ticket is for rather than correcting names.
I would say that I'm surprised the airline accepted that name, but...well, there are people these days who have given their kids some pretty odd names. And I guess you can't expect a computer to know better, regardless. Sorry that happened to you. Hopefully they were willing to at least reimburse you for the money spent on those tickets.
