Adriana has many meanings, the most common are 'dark' or 'rich'. Two other meanings that are more interesting are "A woman from Adria" and "Mujer del mar" (meaning 'woman of the sea'). Adria is a town near the Adriatic sea so the meanings are somewhat related.

Adriana is absolutely gorgeous, only said ah-dree-AH-nah.

I love this name! It's so pretty!
-- Taydbug112  3/3/2007
I'm not sure whether I prefer "ad-ree-anna" or "ay-dree-anna", but either way it's a gorgeous name.

This is a beautiful name, but a few friends of mine who have just had baby girls named their daughters Adriana or Ariana - there are now 2 Adriana Jaydens, 1 Adriana Jailin, 2 Ariana Jailyn, and 1 Jailin Adriana. Just seems that a lot of people like those A and J's put together.

I have to say something, because one person mentioned the Adriana's and all the J's. My parents liked the names Adriana, Jayne, Lily, Angela, Rose, and Jana. They couldn't decide. They ended up having having twins, me and my sister. My name is Adriana LilyJayne, and my sister's is Angela JanaRose. Of course, LilyJayne and JanaRose are our middle names, so people just call us Adriana and Angela.

Adriana (played by Drea DeMatteo) was Christopher Moltisanti's perpetual fiancee on the Sopranos. (The character was "whacked" after turning FBI informant.)

No offense but I just don't like this name. It sounds cold and standoffish.
-- Anonymous User  4/7/2007
I believe spelling this name with only one N instead of two makes the name flow better. One word: BEAUTIFUL.
-- Taydbug112  4/19/2007
I love it! And, I would pronounce it Ay dree ah nuh. I don't like Ah dree ah nuh. I have a combo, which is Adriana Simone.

I love the name Adriana! It's so beautiful that I gave it to my daughter Adriana Janelle. I like all the pronunciations except ones that end with "anna" instead of "ana".

I love this name. It's a beautifull name.

A famous bearer was American actress Adriana Caselotti (May 16, 1916 - January 19, 1997). She provided the voice for Snow White in the 1937 Disney film 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.'
-- AndrewJKD  4/12/2008
The name is pretty, but I wouldn't really use such a Catholic name, as I don't like religions at all. Besides, the model Adriana Lima has ruined this name.
-- slight night shiver  5/14/2008
I love the name Adriana, it's beautiful and unlike other gorgeous names, it's not overused. I would definitely give my daughter (if I am blessed to have one) this name. This is also the name of Melissa (Gallo) Fumero's character on "One Life to Live".

Simply beautiful, so feminine and elegant.

It's pretty but a bit too serious for me. I wouldn't name my daughter this because it sounds so serious and almost too like you're trying too hard to give a beautiful elegant name, if that makes sense. I wouldn't want to call a child this in public constantly like "audriana, audriana, audriana" a bit of a mouthful. It also lacks youthfulness. But it's much classier than names like Brittney, Chrystal, Brandi, Hunter etc.
-- becca_marciano  4/14/2009
I think this name is absolutely gorgeous. I think I will name my future daughter Adriana Chloe, and have her go by Chloe so she can have the strong, regal first name, but she has Chloe as a cute name to go by as a little girl/teenager and probably adult just because then she would be accustomed to it.

I think Adriana is a gorgeous name, strong, mature and very feminine. It reminds me of Adriatic sea. Italian and Spanish pronunciation works best for me, because it rolls of the tongue so nicely. I don't really like English pronunciation, but that's just me.
-- XxproudrulerxX  11/28/2009
It is very classy and beautiful. I just think it is way too common.
-- Alora  1/30/2010
Adriana, feminine form of Adrian, means "Woman of Sea".
-- arryflag  5/4/2010
It's pretty, I like it.
-- Chrila96  10/30/2010
I've only heard it pronounced 'Aydr-ee-ahna' like Adrienne + Ana. It's still a pretty name though. :)
-- foreverslowly  7/9/2012
This name is so overused in Brazil. I remember having two or three Adrianas in every class. It's a nice name, though I am a little bored with it.

This name is beautiful, intelligent, and sophisticated. I can easily picture a two year girl playing with her dolls, all the way to an eighteen year old getting her diploma! It is a very inserting name indeed. Maybe that's why I love it so much!
-- MusicBelle  10/18/2013
This is my daughter's name. We call her RiRi for short or just get lazy and call her Adrian (yes, as in Rocky's famous, 'Yo, Adrian!'). I think the nickname Adrian is cute for Adriana, sounds like 'Adrienne' anyway. Other nicknames I've seen for this name: Adris, Adria or Rianna.

My 2 year-old's daughter name is Adriana but we started calling her Adria within months of her birth. People always comment on how pretty both names are.
