My name is Ariel, pronounced like the letters "R-E-L" but I respond to any variation (a bad habit i've fallen into). I get the Little Mermaid Comparison all the time (it doesn't help that I have red hair either). I love it because it means "Lion of God" and is also the name of a male sprite in Shakespeare's The Tempest.

11/06/2023 13:27:46

I named my daughter Ariel after first hearing the name in the movie Footloose. I love that it means a spirit, angel or a "Lioness of God." The english pronunciation is "air-ee-ul." The name was also given'to one of the lead female characters in the movie "In America", "Grumpy Old Men" and is the eldest daughter's name in the tv series "MedI'm". So pretty, delicate and ethereal.

10/08/2023 10:00:26

Our daughter is named Ariel and we often get compliments on how beautiful a name it is.

09/29/2023 13:31:32

Probably my all-time favorite name for a girl. "Starting Out in the Evening" is another movie that also features a woman with the name Ariel. Beautiful and meaningful.

09/19/2023 12:49:50

My name is Ariel (pronounced 'Air-ee-el' -- no one ever'says it right) and for the most part, I always hated my name. Growing up, I was teased and repeated be the bud of Little Mermaid jokes. But as I got older (now a senior in high school), I started to like my name. There are only a few other girls named Ariel at my school but none of them pronounce it like I do. But it really is a pretty name and It's very unique.

09/12/2023 21:32:34

My parents named me Ariel after hearing the name in the movies Footloose and Grumpy Old Men. My mom told both women named Ariel in these movies were beautiful and smart! :) It's a biblical name that means an angel or a lioness of God. Now I watch the tv series MedI'm and there is a teenage girl name Ariel in that as well! I like my name because it is different and meaningful.

I named my daughter Peyton, but when I heard this name I I'mediatly regretted it. If I'm ever pregnant again you bet I'll name my daughter Ariel! My children always use this site but I forbid them to post for safety reasons. My daughter is Peyton and my son is Tucker.

04/15/2023 11:07:04

I like my name but everyone seems to think I was named after the little mermaid. (I wasn't, was born in 82). I was named after an awful song from the 1982's.

04/14/2023 17:46:42

My name is Ariel. My mom loved the name the first time she heard it in the movie Footloose. I love my name-It's not too common which is great. She also liked that it means an Angel :). The only other Ariel I know of is the teenage daughter in the tv series MedI'm.

04/14/2023 12:29:18

I like it, It's cute and pretty. If you want it to be pronounced ar-ee-ELL, perhaps go with the French spelling of Arielle.

04/07/2023 16:12:16

It's a gorgeous name which fits my gorgeous daughter :-)

04/05/2023 17:46:12

My name is Ayreal pronunced (air-re-l). I love my name very much. I have a friend and her name is Aeriol also. Both our parents said they got the name from a show when'they were younger.

My Name is Ariel, Pronounced REL and I have never met anyone who pronounced it like me but I have met one person who pronounced it as Air-el I Used to hate being named Ariel but I got used to it and now rather enjoy being one of the few!!

03/10/2023 11:57:58

My name is Ariel (pronounced "air-ee-ul") and when I was younger, I hated it. I was always trying to be called something different, mostly because I was always teased because of the Little Mermaid. Ironic enough, I was named after the little mermaid. But by the time I was 13, I finally started loving my name because of how rare it is. And I love the Little Mermaid now too. :P i've only met two other Ariel's and I have a best friend whose name is Arielle. Our names are almost always mispronounced (most people switch them. Her's is "air-ee-el"), so we answer to anything that'sounds close.

01/24/2023 07:48:36

Love the name Ariel for a girl and chose it for my daughter. I first fell in love with this name hearing it in the movies, Footloose, Grumpy Old Men and In America. It is also the name of an angel in the mini-series Fallen and is the teenage daughter's name in the tv show, MedI'm. In english it is pronounced, 'air-ee-ul." Beautiful, ethereal, meaningful and different.

01/07/2023 10:14:36

My name is ariel and we prnounce it in spanish. i love my name. i know 2 other people in my school that have my name.

12/02/2022 03:09:24

My name is Ariel, I used to hate it (association with "The Little Mermaid" even'though it is pronounced the other way) but now it is growing on me because it Isn't very common. I only know one other Ariel and it is a girl a few years younger than me who is the daughter of my preschool teacher who fell in love with my name =)

I have always loved the name Ariel, but if I were to name my daughter that I think I would want to have it pronounced R-e-l....

11/06/2022 12:02:50

Ariel is a beautiful name. I pronounce it "air-ree-ul." My cousin's name is Ariel and (coincidently) she happens to look just like Ariel from Disney's The Little Mermaid. If I ever have a daughter, I'm going to name her Ariel for sure.

11/05/2022 09:35:50

We named our daughter Ashton because before she was born we wasn't sure whether'she was going to be a girl or a boy. We thought that it would be a GREAT name for a boy or a girl.

05/30/2022 22:24:00

I love being named Ariel- I pronounce it Airy-ul. I like that is a gender neutral name, although it really bugs when people pronounce it wrong repeatedly. R-E-elle is my least fav- its totally hypocritical, because I know at least six other Ariels and even I can't keep up with who pronounces theirs how.. :)

03/28/2022 21:54:18

Love the name Ariel for a girl. I prefer the english pronunciation, "air-ee-uhl" rather than the french/hebrew/spanish pronunciation R-E-L. Either way though, it is beautiful and ethereal.

11/20/2021 02:07:12

my name is ariel. prounced "air ee ul". i've only met one other ariel, one aerielle, and one arielle.

10/29/2021 04:54:36

I loooove having this name because of its many meanings and because of how my parents pronounce it. It can mean "Jer'salem" (its originally from the Bible), the Little Mermaid, or Lioness of God. Most people say "EHR-ee-ul" but I like to pronounce it "air-ee-EHL." i've only met three other people with this name and only one who pronounces it like me.

10/23/2021 10:44:42
