I'm someone who loves to write, and I once used this name for a character in a story. Everywhere else I've seen it, it was spelled "Arianna". I'm glad I'm not the only one who spells it with just one "n".
-- Arowen Half-Elven  12/6/2005
I've never pronounced this as er-EE-an-uh. It's always been ARE-ee-ah-nuh to me.
-- Arowen Half-Elven  1/19/2006
I love this name. Not sure if I would use one "n" or two though.

ARIANA is a Persian name, probably the most Persian name there is. It actually means someone from the 'Arian' Tribe. (Arian sounds similar to Iran, doesn't it? That's where we got the name!) Arian actually means 'noble' and Ariana/Arianna is the feminine form.

"Ariana" reminds me of "Rihanna".

My daugher is named Ariana. We pronounce it Are-ee-ah-na. I am picky about pronouncing it and will probably be correcting a lot of people when they call her er-ee-an-a or er-ee-ah-na. It still love the name though. We nicknamed our Ariana, ARE-ee.

It's Greek for 'holy one' or 'most pure'.

There are so many new mommies naming their babies Ariana. It is a beautiful name but not so unqie now.

My daughter has the name Ariana. We say it as ARE-ee-ah-nuh and we call her ARE-ee for short. The first time I saw this name I was reading a Danielle Steele novel and it was a character in her book titled "The Ring". I've loved the name ever since.
-- lexilaine  4/13/2007
Ariana is the name of one of my best friends. She pronounces it er-ee-AH-na. And I find it really pretty.

My name is Ariana. I pronounce it Ah-Ree-Ah-na. My friends call me Ari (Ah-Ree) for short. I have always loved my name. =)
-- AhReeAhna  12/30/2007
Okay, neither of these are SO famous, but;
Ariana Dumbledore, younger sister of Albus from the HP series
Ariana Osgood, from the Private series by Kate Brian
Both of these character were rather deranged, but I still love the name Ariana.

This is my name, but I spell it AURIANA. I've met lots of Ariana's and Arianna's, but never someone who spelled it with a U, like me. I like my spelling better because it's more unique.
-- padfootlestrange  7/1/2008
I heard the name for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and I love it, it's gonna be my daughter's middle name! It sounds so pretty.
-- kelly1994_2013  8/20/2008
I love the name Ariana. It sounds very exotic, but isn't quite so unique anymore.
-- randomlyKeira  9/10/2008
Greek actor Telly Savalas and Julie Hovland have a daughter Ariana.
-- Emilie007  9/28/2008
Aside from being a bit too trendy for my tastes, this one makes me think of a "soap opera princess".
-- ICEyun  12/4/2008
No offense to all Arianas out there, but here's why I wouldn't use this name: it just doesn't look balanced - it has too many 'A's, and the 'I' in the middle just makes the effect too much to handle. And names ending in '-ana' just give me the impression that the parents are either being too lazy or trying too hard to choose the name. Phonetically, it flows, but I can't say the same for the spelling, sorry.
-- seraphine_eternal  1/20/2009
I like the triple A combination of this name. It's a beautiful name and I don't understand the whole comment about it being "off-balance". Either way; it's also cute and you can use the nickname of Ari.
-- lauraleyva  1/28/2009
This is a beautiful name, no wonder it's gradually getting more recognition. I'm writing a book and my main character is definitely going to be called Ariana.
-- Anonymous User  2/27/2009
Ariana came from the name Aryana (Ashavaka) present day Afghanistan.
-- ecletio  3/18/2009
Ariana means 'silver' in Welsh, from the Welsh word arian which means silver.
-- JennyRoseCullen  8/11/2009
Evidently this name is becoming more "trendy", but I have yet to meet an actual person with the name Ariana.

However, I grew up around TONS of Adriana's. I always thought Adriana was pretty, but I found the 'd' somewhat harsh. Take the 'd' out, and you have Ariana--I like it.
-- erb816  12/15/2009
Used in Croatia too, Arijana is a bit more popular though.

This is my name! I love this name it is very cute and sweet. I am proud of my name. My nickname is Ari but I've never been called Ana.
-- AwAriDoll  2/16/2012
It sounds like the name of a Disney princess, or a character out of a book. Four syllables is bit over the top for me.
-- JW41926  3/16/2012
Ariana Grande (b. 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida) is an American actress and singer.
-- Anonymous User  4/30/2012
Ariana Delawari is an American singer and musician. Her debut album, Lion of Panjshir, was produced in part by David Lynch, the acclaimed film director. She is of Afghan descent and her parents named her Ariana because it is an ancient name for Afghanistan.
-- overtheclouds  7/18/2012
I'd be careful with this name, since Ariana also happens to mean "(female) Aryan" (as in the Aryan race) in several languages, including Italian and Portuguese.
-- Anonymous User  10/31/2012
Ariana is one of the Team Rocket executives in Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver.
-- Buneary  3/29/2013
I think it is a beautiful name, but I like to pronouce it
Er-EE-ah-nuh, that's just me :)
-- cccake15  4/14/2013
Ariana is the old name of Afghanistan! That's the oldest name on earth, 50,000 yrs. It is not italian or Greek or Persian!... Everything is a LIE in a christian world.. Everything comes from Afghanistan, also the holy mother Maria (Mother of the Arians=Maa'Aria), she was kidnapped in Ariana/afghanistan by the greeks in the ancient.

Best regards from europe.

-- ArianaG  4/6/2014
Okay. I love this name because it's my name. And it's not common but u do find other names made off it. I don't pronounce my name like others. I pronounce it AIR-RE-ANA, I spell it ARIANA tho. And I hate for people to say it wrong. I have actually fought someone about my name. But travel it many ways to pronounce it and spell it.
