This name is Icelandic and is put together by two elements.

First comes Heið-:
That can mean honor, nobility or magnificence. It can also mean clear, bright, shining or radiant.

The second element is - dís:
That means goddess, fairy or a nymph.
The two peculiar letters ð (Ð) and í (Í) are pronounced like this:
Ð/ð - like a soft th (as in myTH, not as in THat)
Í/í - e

Correct English pronounciation of the name "Heiðdís (Heiddis)" would be - Heithdees.
