Well, a little Googling seems to show that this name does occur in some early writings about St. Dyfrig of Wales as the name of a demoniac girl he cured.
It also occurs in "Lives of the British Saints" by Baring-Gould:
I do not know if modern historians think this person really existed or if her story is just a legend. And so far I have not been able to find any examples of Welsh women named Arianell besides this cured demoniac saint. But at least it is a name that goes back a while in this story of St. Dyfrig.
