In the movie "Rigoletto," Ari is the name of the main character. Great movie!

I have a close friend named Ari. He is a bit of an original, you could say. He's quite nerdy and has extremely long hair. I think my impression of the name has been imprinted forever.

Ari was the first name of Ari Ben Canaan, the main character in the novel 'Exodus' by Leon Uris.

The name Ari has a detestable nickname in elementary and middle school, 'Air'.

What's so "detestable" about the word "AIR"?

Actually, I don't even think it's pronounced Air-ee. The two people I saw with it were AR-ee. I knew one in elementary school, but I think he moved. The next year, a substitute teacher was taking attendence and called out, Ari, prounouncing it Air-ee. He said his name was AR-ee, but when I got to match people's names and faces, I saw that this was someone else.

In the "Maximum Ride" series (I don't recall who wrote it, sorry), there is an Eraser (wolf/human thing) named Ari.

I also knew a girl, Ariana, who went by Ari. I think it's a gorgeous name that works equally well for both sexes.

I like this name a lot for a girl or guy, but a guy moreso.

I actually love this as a girl's name, although it's very cute on other people's boys. Just too feminine-sounding for my taste.

Hearing, "I'm Ari Shapiro" every morning on NPR kind of makes the name grow on you.

Another bearer, though fictional, is Ari Ruka of Okage: Shadow King. The game is a spoof of Japanese role-playing games.

Ari Batchelder (not sure I spelled that right) is a character in the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. He is an eraser, which means he can turn into a wolf at will, kinda like the Twilight shapeshifters.

It's a decidedly more masculine to use Ari instead of Ariel. While I really like both, Ariel is much more feminine in my eyes. Ari's a really strong name for a boy that he'll be able to grow up with. I like it.

I actually really love this name-- the only reason why I wouldn't consider it as a name, if I ever had a son, is because the only Ari I know is the freakiest young man I've ever seen in my life. Otherwise, it's a really unique sounding name-- it's a cute nickname for Ariel, too.

There's a character named Ari Haswari in the USA show, NCIS.

This was the (default) name of the main character of the Playstation 2 role-playing game Okage Shadow King.

I kind of like Ari. Like, not love. It's not the best name in the word, but it's cute. But not on girls.

Ari is pronounced ARE-ee.

I think this is a lovely name for a man. Gives a very romantic impression. I know someone named Ari and it is true that people often mispronounce his name and call him "Air".
-- wondertwin  3/9/2012
As a feminine name, Ari can be a nickname for Ariadne or Arianna, among other names.

I love the mane Ari for a male pronounced Ah-re (as in the ar sound in car). It's a male character off the tv show Entourage. It's great for any age and great that it can't be shortened. I honestly don't know how Ari would ever get called 'Air' that's crazy that would mean Eli would get 'lie'! I know people with both names and have never heard this.

176 people in the US actually named their baby girls Ari in 2012 :/

My name is Arin, but I've only ever been called Ari. Pronounced "Ah-ree". I've *never* been called "air". "arry" (like Harry with the H missing) I've been called maybe twice in my life. I'm a girl and though there was a boy Ari in my class at school, neither of us got teased about it.
