Arielle : Meaning, Origin and Popularity

Meaning of name Arielle:

Arielle is the French form of Ariel. Ariel's name is taken over from the Bible as a place name [Isaiah 29:1-2]. “Ah, Ariel, Ariel, / the city where David camped! / Add one year to another; / Let the parties run there all year round. / However, I am going to Ariel in a hurry, / and there will be no groaning and wailing, / and he will become to me like an Ariel.” Most etymological sources translate Ariel into the Hebrew word for 'lion of God' or ' hero'. It is also sometimes said to mean "alter home", which would make sense given the biblical place name. Ariel originated as a masculine given name in the Jewish community, with Ariella being a feminine form of the name. Arielle is the French variation also uused among the English. Today, Ariel is widely used among English speakers and has become predominantly a feminine name in the United States, although it is still considered unisex. Arielle on the other hand is clearly feminine.


French Arielle first appeared on the American female naming charts in 1982 (four years after Ariel). Both Ariel and Arielle grew impressively in usage during the 1980s and then saw a further boost on the charts thanks to Disney's The Little Mermaid Ariel in the late 1980s. Although Arielle has never achieved a position in the top 100 names of the most commonly used girl, Ariel did. Instead Arielle has always followed the spelling of Ariel in terms of popularity. Today, Arielle is enjoying more or less moderate low usage. She's definitely not trendy, but she's also not unknown either. Ella is a lovely choice for Francophile parents who prefer the French spelling of names (which also pronounce it slightly differently). More minimalist parents might go for the Ariel spelling. Or the fancier fancy pants could opt for the frillier four-syllable Ariella.

my wife and I chose this name for our daughter, we did not know the gender of our baby to be. If it was a boy it would have been Josiah Ariel, a girl Arielle Marie,the Marie fits with the French form, however both our moms were named Mary and Maria, so also a tribute to our moms. We chose biblical names

My sister's name is Arielle (ah-REE-ehl). My mom used to always get mad because people thought she was named after The Little Mermaid even'though she was born years before it came out. I love the name. I feel It's a classic, unique name that never gets old.

My daughter's middle is Arielle, but I pronounce it Ahr-ee-elle which is the French pronunciation and spelling.

I LOVE my name!!! most people pronounce it R-E-L though, but I pronounce it A-REE-ELLE! I think its cool cuz i dont know that many people named Arielle, and I'm glad to know that there actually are othe's!!! :)

My name is Arielle. It's Hebrew and means Lioness of God. i've always loved it. I pronounce it Airy-elle. People always get it wrong. I love that not many people have it and I love the meaning. If I have a daughter in the future I have no idea what I will name her because I think my name is the most beautiful girls name in the world! I'm almost 29 so I was about 5 years old when'the Little Mermaid came out so obviously that was perfect for me! My parents got the name from Shakespeare's The Tempest, there is a male character named Ariel so they just added the extra L and E to use the feminine version.

My name arielle is awsome. I get called the little mermaid alot (espially of my last name being short) but thats okay. I usally have to explain that my name means lioness of god, but is also french for Gabriel the angel of Jer'salem. In my experiance with the name I have been called Arnel, Aril, Uriel, and many othe's it is quite funny actually.

My name is Arielle too. I love my name because It's unique in my area. I'm pretty sure I'm the only Arielle at my school. My mom got the idea from (what else?) the Little Mermaid but tacked on the "le" on the end of it. The irony of having a unique name has been'that'some people can't remember it! I tell them that when'they see me, think of the Little Mermaid. It's worked so far!
