this is my friends name and i luv it i would spell it with 2 "n" though like this "Gianna" we call her "g"

01/14/2024 00:00:00

In greek it means "most holy." I am also Arianna

01/14/2024 00:00:00

Naming my daughter this. She'll be half Chinese, and a mix of quarter Irish-French. Loved it when I heard it.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

This is my 4 year old daughter's name. We used the middle name Rain so her name means silver rain...Very unique.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

There's a Marc Anthony song..where he mentions his daughters name "Arianna." I wonder if it has to do with any of the popularity. Honestly, I was the only Arianna for a long time in my area. But funny story, several of my schoolmate's parents used the name to name their subsequent daughters. In my old school, there were about 3-4 Arianna's by the time I graduated (all much younger than me) who could be traced back to me.

12/03/2023 03:29:44 daughters name is arihanna marie..also not quite the same spelling but still..its weird...but i have to say marie is common

11/27/2023 12:18:24

This is the most ridiculously contrived name in recent years (far worse than the'silly variations of Michaela, Mackenzie, and Madison). It's far from unique. By the time the current crop of Nevaehs start school, traditional names like Linda and Mary will be unique!

10/25/2023 15:48:10

Yes My Name Is Ariana And I'm Arabic/Spanish,It Means Holy One. Ariana Is Such A Pretty Name I Love My Name!

10/24/2023 18:38:34

I love it, It's my friend's name. It's very pretty and unique, my name iS Taylor. The name Ariana sounds like your always having fun and it isnt too common.

09/24/2023 12:44:14

Hi. My name is Ariana,and I am 9 years old. I love my name now that I know all of these facts! Thanks for telling me this! ;) :)

09/11/2023 22:19:32

I love this name- my daughter is almost 8 now and it is becoming quite popular. Though most that I know are spelt Arianna and pronounced "Airy-ana". Still love it!

09/06/2023 12:43:14

This is my daughter's name and I pronounce it A-Niah-ah. My neighbors pronounce it A-nay-ah. I think it depends on your ethnicity on how you pronounce it.

08/18/2023 16:43:10

My name is Ariana, but it is pronounced Air-ee-anna (not awna, anna). I am pretty sure that when my parents named me, they thought that the correct pronunciation was Air-ree-anna (like Mariana) but they were wrong.... Guess its just a new or different way to say it! Most people pronounce it the correct way, so I just have to tell them the "incorrectly correct" way my family says it. Oh well... I think all pronunciations are very pretty! :)

07/05/2023 10:18:40

My name is Ariana and it is pronouced Air e anna. I am glad for a rare name but yet i wish that more people would have this name'so that I could have something with my name on it.

06/20/2023 05:53:20

I like it. It's my little sister's name. I can't imagine her being called anything else. People always compliment it but say or spell it wrong often. It's Ariana (Ah-ree-ar-nah). My parents picked good names- for me- Nadia. In between- Laura wasn't very original but choosing Ariana redeemed them! :-)

06/16/2023 10:29:22

My beautiful, full-of-spunk niece is Ariana. People have mispronounced it many times. It's not AIR-e-ana but AW-ree-ahna. We call her Ari sometimes, and when she was little we called her Ri(like REE)and Ri-Ri

Hi. My daughter was born in 1987. My husband's from Afghanistan, so we named my daughter after his country; the original name of his country was Ariana/Aryana. We did this with two purposes in mind: first, to honor the country that he had to leave, since the Russians killed my husband's father and put my husband in jail for not wanting to be a communist, so he had to leave there, even though he missed his home so badly. Second, we named her with a sense of irony, because the place where we eventually moved was the four state center of the KKK, and we would probably have been killed if we'd lived in Germany about sixty years ago; the thing is, the Afghan, Persian, and surrounding countries were the original Aryan countries, and most certainly didn't look like Hitler's ideal--blond hair, blue eyes, etc. (and yes, some people will say that the original Aryans came from somewhere else, blah, blah, blah, but we don't care--we just love the name).

06/05/2023 08:48:50

Heyz my catholic name is Ariana. Its such a pretty name!!! :P

03/23/2023 11:11:40

03/22/2023 16:05:30

OMG my name is Ariana and my younger'sister's name is Alivia... Just like one of the comments above!! What a coincidence

03/15/2023 16:34:30

This is my daughter's name Raina where everyone in my Family and friends loves the in India they say RAI-NA. No one so far i heard with my family and friends.

03/13/2023 09:01:48

We have been struggling with finding a boy's name - I'm due in May. My husband likes very traditional names and I like more unique names, but I'may actually have him convinced on this one. I think this name'sounds strong and unique and I'm glad to hear from people named Vance who like their name.

03/12/2023 19:13:02

one of my daughter's names is similar. it airyeonna

03/12/2023 03:38:28

My daughter's name is Ariana (also pronouced Ahr-ee-ah-na) Dawn and we love it because she is a Holy Beginning or a Holy Sunrise depending on how you look at it. A lot of people call her Air-ee-ah-na though.

03/05/2023 04:07:28

I like it! It sort of fits. :)

03/04/2023 06:04:58

the way i've been wanting to spell it is: ARIYANNA!! it makes it more unique

02/27/2023 09:59:48

one name ill choose if God will s it to my daughter

02/24/2023 16:27:34

I named my daughter Ariana Marie. We call her Ari. We pronounce it "Are-ree-on-na" not "Airy-anna" which people sometimes say. Marie was my aunt's middle name- she passed away while I was pregnant, so I wanted to include part of her name in my daughter's name. I love this name because it's formal, it has a cute nickname and it's very beautiful.

02/19/2023 20:04:46

I named my daughter Ariana in 2007, so in 2014 when I had another daughter, I named her Aliviah ( think Olivia) I wanted the'spelling to be different from the'slave name'standard, and I wanted another a name. Regardless, Ariana is a beautiful name, and I think that it is outragously beautiful for a mixed race child.

02/06/2023 08:12:50

How can people muck this name up. You are correct that the pronunciation is Ahr-ee-ah-na.

02/02/2023 19:34:26

I think this is a really beautiful name that I named my daughter Ariana Camila. now all I have to do is think of a name for my second daughter.

12/21/2022 06:47:56

I have suggestion for names Josfina Ariana Angilina Kaya Emma Maya Cat Ashely Araceli (which is pronounced Shelly)

12/05/2022 19:54:40

Most people say our daugthes name right. I like it cause it is pretty and diferent. Suits her'so much.

11/29/2022 09:37:10

HI'my name is Ariana, but everyone calls me ari ❀️

11/14/2022 04:36:34

I think the name Ariana is beautiful, I just don't know if I should name my child it. It'sounds beautiful, but if you say it too often It'starts to sound really annoying.

09/23/2022 06:31:14

what a beautiful name, very different, very dignified, nice nickname, ie. Kat

09/07/2022 20:48:30

Misleading! "Ariana" does not have anything to do with Islam or Arabic language! Ariana is "Persian". As a geographical term, Ariana was a region of the eastern countries of ancient Persia, next to India where at various times, the region was in possession of the Persians, the Macedonians, and partly the Indians. Ref. The Columbia Encyclopedia

09/04/2022 23:27:02

We are naming our daughter Aurora...having a difficulty with middle name however :( BUT I am so in love with the name that I can't even some-what like anything else cause it doesn't even compare! Two thumbs wayyy up :)

08/02/2022 17:11:42

Our daughter is Ariana, and we think It'suits her as she is a sweet little girl and so precious.

07/10/2022 15:37:12

This is my name, too. My first name is Jacquelyn and my middle name is Claire, so my friends usually call me Jacey, because It'sounds like my initials, J.C. I like Jacey better than Jackie. I always hated being called Jackie, or Jacquie, or whichever'spelling you think justifies the nickname. I love how my name is spelled, and I can't stand when people spell it Jacqueline. I don't mind it when It's one time, but teache's that have known me for over five years that can't spell it right start to get annoying. But It's okay, I don't mind people spelling it wrong, because I know that the prettiest way to spell it is the way I do :) I have never known anyone with the'same name as me. I think It's a beautiful and unique name.

06/01/2022 08:15:18

I first thought of this when reading a bit about celtic mythology, Arianrhod is a figure in welsh mythology, the name Arianrhod meaning Silver Wheel. I've never heard of it here in Australia so I doubt it's popular here. I think it would be pronounced Ah-ree-ah-na, or at least that's what sounds prettiest to me.

03/23/2022 06:29:06

all the time people say the name wrong. Its Ahhr e anna not Air e anna ive known a few people with the'same name..not that common though

03/07/2022 00:41:42

I love this name and my little girl gets a lot of compliments with this name. I sometimes call her Ari or Ana for short.

10/17/2021 11:05:24

My name is Ariana, and while I get a lot of compliments about it, it can sometimes be irritating when people pronounce it wrong. The correct pronounciation is Ahr-eeh-AH-na, emphasizing the wide A in the beginning. No 'Air' in my name.

10/16/2021 19:32:06

Ariana is a really beautiful name and it is going to be the name of our daughter :)
