Beautiful name with awesome mythological connotations.

This was the name of the main character in the 'The Heart Has...' book series (The Heart Has Its Reasons, The Heart Has Forever and The Heart Only Knows) by Kerry Blair.

I think this is a very lovely name. It's also one of my friend's name and everyone says how classy and admirable it sounds.

I've always associated this name with the name of Adrianna or Adriana. There has only been one Ariadne I've known in my life and was pronounced AREE-AD-NUH or AREE-ANNE (with a silent 'd'). Ariadne is quite a unique name blessed with beauty, grace and purity.

This name appeared on the TV series Judging Amy as the daughter of a character named Donna.

I think that this name is the most beautiful thing that you can ever name your beloved daughter! Why use platitudinous names like Isabella, Kayla, Emily and Emma, when there is this? So delicate, pure and indubitable! My second daughter is going to be named this and I certainly repute that she will live up to her name.

I think I would like this name if it didn't remind me so much of 'Rodney'. I also sort of fancy the pronuncation "air-eee-AY-den", but that's just me.
-- Pheadirean  8/28/2006
It wouldn't remind you of Rodney if you said it correctly. Rodney is "ROD-nee" not "RADNEE" and Ariadne is said like the site says. I love this name, it is amazingly beautiful.

Ariadne Oliver is a recurring character in Agatha Christie's novels. She is a flighty mystery writer who is extremely fond of apples. In several of the stories she tries to help Hercule Poirot solve mysteries by using her "feminine intuition."

I think this is a beautiful name! (Let's all hope it doesn't become to common)

I LOVE this name, it's so beautiful! I personally like the pronunciation 'are-ee-add-nuh', but that's just me.
-- _clippit_  3/5/2007
This name is so beautiful and not too popular so that's just great. Anyone who wants their child to be named Arianna/Ariana (etc.) should consider this instead. I like the pronunciations, "are-ee-A-den" or "are-ODD-nee/are-ee-ODD-nee.

Ariadne Artiles is a Spanish model.

I much prefer Ariana. The "d" to me disrupts the visual image of the name as well as creates an uncertainty as to the pronunciation. Ariana is pretty hard to mispronounce, although it can be done just like with any other name. Ariadne is just trying too hard!

In the 80's Fantasy movie "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen", the queen of the moon was named Ariadne. I think this is a beautiful name, however, responding to what someone said earlier, my name is Emma and I think it is one of the best female names. Anyway, Ariadne is quite pretty.
-- harry_sent_me  9/8/2007
I think this is a really nice name. I pronounce it AH-ree-AHD-nee. The meaning is great and it's so unique!

Saint Ariadne was a second-century martyr of Phrygia who, according to tradition, was a slave killed after refusing to perform pagan rites.

In another version of her story, Theseus left her behind by mistake. When he returned for her, he found her missing, and presumed her dead, which deeply hurt him.

This is the name of the actress/singer Ariadne Diaz from the mexican soap opera "Al Diablo con los Guapos" aka Florencia Chavaria and shes also in Muchachitas como Tu.
-- Anonymous User  8/31/2008
This name is beautiful as it is, period. If not for the possibly sacrilegious meaning, I wouldn't mind naming my daughter this, honestly.
-- seraphine_eternal  1/19/2009
It's different. It's unique. It's beautiful.
-- kool_babe14  5/7/2009
The d isn't pronounced in the French version of the name, making it more like 'Ariane'.
-- Anonymous User  5/16/2009
It's a good name for an 80 year old woman. How would you pronounce it, like AH REE AAADNEE! Ugly.

I knew an Ariadne in college, but she went by Ari.

'Ariadne auf Naxos' is a famous opera by Richard Strauss.

Ariadne was the name of Ellen Page's character in Christopher Nolan's film, Inception. I was really excited to see this name being used in a youthful context, as it's one of my favorites!

"A labyrinthine man never seeks the truth, but only his Ariadne."
--Friedrich Nietzsche
(Ariadne having been his recently deceased mother).
-- erb816  8/26/2010
The above Nietzsche quote is likely why the name Ariadne was chosen for the dream architect in "Inception" (2010). Frankly, given that it's such an exotic name, I thought it fit in quite well in the modern world. It's a lovely name.
-- erb816  8/26/2010
This name is beautiful, but difficult to spell/pronounce. Adrianna would be a nice substitute.

Ariadne Bliss was the name of a priggish little girl in the book 'The Eight Cousins' by Louisa May Alcott. In the sequel to that book, 'Rose in Bloom', it seems that the girl's name was changed to Annabel and the she was much nicer than in the previous book.
-- Alie.Meilian  4/28/2011
I love this name, I think it's so elegant but also with a young element - and there can be a lot of nicknames like Addy, Aria and my personal favourite Ria - this name is definitely one of my all-time favourites!

The name Ariadne was given to 116 baby girls born in the US in 2012.
