Adrienne is my best friend, and I love her name! I've seen on a website that it means "the dark one". We call her Adie.

A song by The Calling is called "Adrienne". I love this name and I would totally name my daughter this.

Beautiful name! Normally I see men named Adrian but I like the female form of the name. I think that it's sophisticated yet cute at the same time.

I love this name, it's really pretty.

My name is Adrienne and it's unique because when you go to the store for name tags or anything else with a name on it Adrienne isn't always there. People should relize that it's a girls name because people at my school who don't know think of Adrienne as a boy. Adrienne is a girls name and Adrian is the male version.

I love this name, especially the spelling seems so feminine, a good nickname for this name is Addy.

I always thought that the French equivalent of Adriana or Adrianna would be Adriane or Adrianne.

My name is Adrienne, and I like it. Most people spell it Adrianne though, but after I correct them once, it sticks, so I love my name. :)

My best friend's name is Adrienne, and I absolutely love it! I'm planning to use it for my daughter's middle name. We call her Adj, pronounced "age".

This is my guilty pleasure name. It is very beautiful.

This is my name and I like it. Not many others have this name and it is unique.
-- GrapeGirl93  2/14/2010
I love this name, but I don't want to use it because I don't want my daughter being called "Adrian". Adrian and Adrienne are two different names!
-- Chrila96  10/26/2010
I love this name! Love it spelled like this better than "Adrianne" or "Adrian" this is way better and it looks more girly and pretty. I would name my daughter this!

This has always been one of my favorite names for a girl! I think it is so pretty and just elegant. One of my best friends is named Adrienne. Everyone always spells her name wrong though like "Adrian". We call her "Adri" pronounced "Aw-dree". I would name my daughter this :)

So much better than Adriana, and not as many stuck-up Brazilian models have this name as Adriana.
-- Buneary  11/15/2012
He This is my name. I like it. Very hard to find on a name tag, that's for sure. Don't run into many often with the same name as me. But that just makes it more special when I do. I like this spelling better ending with enne. It just seems more unique and interesting.

Adrian
Adrianne
Adrienne

Though people sound like they pronounce all these names the same the fact is the only one that sounds different in the slightest is Adrienne

A-dree-enne
Not
A-dree-anne
Or
A-dree-an

So this is what concerns me. This girl's entire life will be spent having to correct people or see her name spelt "Adrian" on her coffee cup every time because Adrienne is not the most popular spelling of this name.

Also Adrian is a name pronounced identically to most as Adrienne.
This girl will basically have to face the fact that Boys will have the same sounding name as her.

How awkward would it be if this girl falls in live with a boy named Adrian...

I like that this name is so under the radar like there hasn't been anything to taint the name at all or give any misconceptions of or assumptions of who this girl might be.

No huge celebrity or fictional character has this name. No one can say hey Adrienne! Like that actress I hate! Or Adrienne like that annoying cartoon character.

All I can think of is "Aaaadrriiaaann" from Rocky being shouted after her.. maybe. And that's not even the same spelling.

So there is hope for a girl named Adrienne to make a name for herself. To define herself and make her own impression on the world. Not having to be held back by people's association's with her name because they don't exist.

Apparently it also means: Dark, Rich
All I keep thinking is "Dark Chocolate" and "Rich Chocolate"

So this leads me to :
Adrienne = Dark = Chocolate
Adrienne = Rich = Chocolate

So...

Adrienne = Chocolate

And chocolate in moderation has been known to make people happy and lift up their moods.

So...
Adrienne = Happiness


Done!

Totally naming my daughter this...

(My logic may not be as sound as it looks...)

Well, in English it sounds identical to the male name Adrian. I think Adria is much better.
-- thesnowwhiterose  7/7/2013
A pure, sophisticated, lovely, sexy name for a girl. It is amazing how appealing I find this name! Its pretty and alluring! Love it!
-- MusicBelle  11/9/2013
My name is Adrienne, personally, I sometimes dislike it because it IS a weird name. Also it does get mistakenly spelt 'adrian' or 'adrianne' quite alot, also pronounced 'adrianne'. It's easy for other people to say how nice it is but you don't have that name, so imagine what it's like for us who DO have it.
-- adrienneyo_  1/13/2014
Adrienne is my name and it's wonderful. Of course I have some online friends who insist it's a boy's name, but I don't really mind.
-- walkerslayerrr  6/10/2014
Hate this name-at least on a female
Adrienne is just a males name but with an eloborate, feminine spelling.

I love Adrian on a boy.
Adrienne on a girl is cringe worthy. Pronounced the exact same way...
Sorry.
