I like this name for a girl.. Pronounced are-ee. Seems weak for a guy.

I really like it, as it's short, cute, yet can still work for a grown man. It's one of those soft-masculine names that seems more fitting for an actor or dancer than an uber-masculine construction worker or lumberjack. It doesn't sound bad on girls, but I prefer it on females as a nickname for Ariadne or Ariana or Adrienne or something else.

In Albanian Ari means Bear, or Ar-i means gold.

My name is Ari and I am a girl. It is not short for anything.

My name is Ari and I'm genderfluid. Ari is a good unisex name but seems to be found more commonly in guys.

There's Ariadne "Ari" Kaligaris, Lena's mom from the Sisters of the Traveling Pants books.
There's Ari Alexander, Ava's husband from the Beautiful Fate books
Masculine and sexy in a man, light and feminine in a woman.

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.

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

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.

As a feminine name, Ari can be a nickname for Ariadne or Arianna, among other names.

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".

Ari is pronounced ARE-ee.

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.

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

In Hebrew, Ari would be My Mountain.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
LuzDeTuVida  8/10/2008
In the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Ari is Lena Kaligaris's mother. Her real name is Ariadne.

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

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

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

Ari was the name of one of Chas Tenenbaum's sons in the Wes Anderson film "The Royal Tenenbaums".

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.

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

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

Pronounced ah-ree.

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

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.

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

In Armenian it means brave, and it is also a masculine name.
