Some names have more than one meaning, the names may look and sound the same but they originated in different parts of the world from different languages, and each meaning is correct

as for Arianna if you look under the spelling Ariana you will see

Variant of ARIANE

Now for Ariane says

Variant of ARIANNE. It has possibly been influenced by the Welsh word arian "silver".

So I would Guess that to a welsh person the meaning Silver might be concidered the legitamate one, but our experts would know more on the subject
