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

11/14/2022 4:36:34 AM

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.

9/23/2022 6:31:14 AM

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

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

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 :)

8/2/2022 5:11:42 PM

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

7/10/2022 3:37:12 PM

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.

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.

3/23/2022 6:29:06 AM

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

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 AM

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 7:32:06 PM

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