Love this one - but having a rough time choosing a middle name to fit with it.
namefinder25  1/23/2006
Yea, middle names are kinda hard to fit with this one. Mine is "Arianna Catherine". :)

This name is perfect for a little princess and I like the middle name of Renee behind it. It seems to flow.

This is a great name for a girl. I kind of prefer the spelling Arianna than Ariana. I don't personally know anyone with this name.

"Arianna" reminds me of "Rihanna".
iva_toneva  6/20/2006
A very beautiful name. I love the meaning of it too. The one person I know with this name pronounces it airy-anna.

One famous bearer of Arianna (the only one I know of, actually) is Arianna Stassinopoulos Huffington. She's a writer, I believe she wrote a biography of Picasso, and now she's some sort of political pundit. I see her on TV every now and again. Her full name is quite a jawbreaker.

What a beautiful name Arianna is. It's very elegant sounding.

One of my best friend's name is Arianna, and her middle name is Norelle. I think it sounds very lyrical!

I think that Arianna is a beautiful name. To me it represents gracefulness and beauty. Anyone who wants a beautiful name should pick Arianna!

Arianna is beautiful and I just love it. :)

Arianna is a beautiful name! One of my friends is named Arianna and whenever I picture someone with that name I see her.
sqirrlie  3/1/2007
I love this name and think it's worlds prettier than Ariadne.
writing the world  4/4/2007
Yes, I like this spelling better than Ariana. With an extra n, it makes it look royal. This would be a perfect name for a princess or queen or anyone royal. Her nickname would be Ari or Anna, but I like Ari better. A nice middle name would be Rose. Arianna Rose. I think that sounds beautiful!
bunnygirl  7/19/2007
"Aryan" is much too present in this name for my taste. I just can't get over that.
arrowhead909  7/22/2007
Arianna is also of Icelandic origins meaning "song of the siren".
― Anonymous User  9/12/2007
I love the name Arianna! I very much prefer it with two "n"s, spelled this way, Arianna, than with one "n", Ariana. It is so much prettier that way! I think the nicknames Ari or Aria are really beautiful.
harry_sent_me  10/18/2007
I like this version better than `Ariana`. `Ariana` seems so uncomplete with only one N, while `Arianna` looks as wholesome and pretty a name can be with two of the letter N.
The Commenter  11/9/2007
I like this name, but I hate when everyone pronounces it AR-ee-anna. Seems like you can't escape from Anna.
jasmineenimsaj  2/10/2008
This is my name, I love it to death. I've never met anyone with it. And I pronounce it AIR-E-ANNA.
― Anonymous User  3/2/2008
I'm going to have to disagree. I pronounce the name ari-AH-NAH. I think it's nicer.
Koolgal  7/17/2008
I like this name. However, it does sound a little like "Aryan", much to the delight of white supremacists.
bananarama  8/19/2008
I know a ton of Arianna's. This name is almost as popular as the name Isabella which I don't like for that very reason--because it's totally played out. Arianna's a very trendy girls name right now. Now don't take me wrong, I do like it, think it's very pretty, but wouldn't name my daughter this because there are just way too many. I also prefer the double 'n' spelling.
Bajafresh  8/23/2008
I named my youngest daughter this and I love it. We pronounce it like are-re-anna.
bflykisses  9/18/2008
In Italy Arianna was hardly ever used till the 1970s. Today it is common, without being overused (21th most popular name in Italy in 2004, 20th in 2006).
presentperfect  12/20/2008
The Italian pronunciation is ah-RRYAHNN-nah. If it was written Ariana, it would be pronounced quite different (ah-RRYAH-nah), but the name Ariana doesn't exist in Italian.
presentperfect  12/20/2008
Absolutely stunning! Beautiful!

L'Arianna is one of the first operas, written by Claudio Monteverdi. It is based on the Greek myth of Ariadne and Theseus and is mostly lost except for one piece, Lamento d'Arianna, or Arianna's Lament, a very touching aria. This is personally one of my favorite names and has been for as long as I can remember. It looks beautiful, sounds beautiful, and has a nice meaning.
britto08  2/21/2009
Dammit, I LOVE this name but it's so popular. I know at least 4 or 5 women who've named their kid Arianna. It's a great name, something I would've wanted to name my kid if it wasn't so common.
Bajafresh  8/25/2009
When I hear this name, I automatically assume her parents are racists, because of the Aryan sound to it. Good name if you want your little girl to grow up to dance around a pole.

Another boring Italian princess name.

Arianna is also a 3-year old princess of the Netherlands.
Song-of-the-siren  5/9/2010
I love the name and not only because this is my name! In general, it sounds very beautiful, delicate, graceful and it has a great historical background and meaning of course.

The actress who plays Cat on the t.v. show Victorious (on Nick=) real name is Ariana ~it might be spelled different but I think that's right.
― Anonymous User  11/9/2010
I love this name! It's so cute for a little girl and can also fit for a girl when she grows up! I like the nickname "Ari".
adrenalinekat  12/28/2010
My mom was about to name me this! I think it's totally beautiful, much better than the totally dated name she chose for me now. ):
Chrila96  1/15/2011
This is my name:) It's true though, more and more parents are naming their kids this BUT it is very pretty. Also, I personally have only met one other girl with this name, and she spelt it differently. She spelt it with only one 'N'. And I pronounce it ari-AH-nah.
JeSuisCool  3/22/2011
I think Arianna is easier to pronounce than Ariadne. I also think it sounds better than Ariadne. It looks like a conjunction of "Ari" and "Anna", that I favor in regard.
Stewie_Griffin  9/8/2011
Beautiful, elegant, and regal. I think it sounds better when pronounced Ari-AH-NA. When the end part is said like "anna", it sounds sloppy.

My daughters name is Arianna Alicia. I think of a princess when I say her name. It's not too common but also not unheard of. I love it!
ArisMama35  8/7/2014
My Daughter's name is Mia Arianna! I love both names. My Daughter is now 15 and when we chose her name, I had only known one other person with the name Arianna! I love it!
heidi eastman  11/10/2014
I really love this name as it is my 21 month old daughter's name. We pronounce it ARI-AH-NAH and her short form for her name is Anna pronounced AH-NAH. I also used Gwendolyn as her middle name as it is my grandmother's name but I love the sound of it with the name Arianna. I also prefer the two "n's" opposed to one, I feel like it looks empty with only one "N".
MizzMatt  2/6/2015
Arianna is also Greek it means lion of the gods.
Arielle Boyd  3/10/2015
Arianna is Greek, meaning most pure and holy.
Arielle Boyd  3/10/2015
We named our daughter Arianna pronounced "Are-ee-ona" we use Ari for her nickname "Ar-ee"
Beautiful name! Always receive compliments. The only downfall is the association with Ariana Grande and the North American pronunciation of the name "Air-ee-anna".
BrittanyTM  4/21/2015
We have an Arianna who is 15 years old. We pronounce it ARE-ee-ah-nah, not AIR-ee-ah-nah... Most everyone says it 'Air'. Sometimes I think if I would have spelled it with one N, this may not have happened as much.

Anyway, she mostly goes by Ari. Full name is Arianna Elizabeth.

She has always liked her name a lot. It's not super common in our area or schools. This is her first year of high school, and there is one other Arianna (senior) in the school. Previously, she has been the only one.
muddishooz  6/24/2015
I love this name. I'm thinking about naming my future daughter (if I have one) this. The only problem is there are 3-4 ways that you can pronounce this name.
Luvbug86  4/11/2016
Arianna is the Italian name derived from the Greek name Ariadne. In Italy it is widely used. My daughter is named Arianna and the pronunciation in Italian is totally different to how the English say it. It was not common then, but it is now, with every nationality using foreign names as the norm.
Rojo  5/8/2016
When I first heard of this name, I was in middle school reading the final Harry Potter book for the first time. It was spelled Ariana, but I still thought this name of either spelling was beautiful. Now, I know so many Ariannas and Arianas that the name has completely lost all the charm I originally found in it. I still think it's a pretty name, but I'm not nearly as blown away by it as I was when I first read it in Harry Potter all those years ago. I much prefer the root name Ariadne, as it's still got the same beauty but has so much more originality to it. Arianna is one of those names that popularity has ruined for me.
RoseTintsMyWorld  5/10/2016
Cute name because it has so many nice nicknames Ari, Ria, Anna, Ann, Annie, Aria, Nina and basically all middle names and last names sound nice with Arianna.
Sania01  7/22/2016
You should use the middle name of winter-rose. Trust me, it works.
arianna123456  9/26/2016
I gave birth to my daughter in 2004 & I chose the spelling Ariannah then her middle name was made Skye to represent a close friend who died when we were 13. I love the name.
felicitysj88  10/27/2016
I chose Arriana as a middle name for my daughter Hailey who died at birth. I chose then to name my next daughter Arianna. I have always loved that name. I call her Yanna, and her siblings call her Nana or Arianna. She dislikes being called "air e anna" and corrects anyone who does. She's a beautiful, smart and intelligent young lady. The name also has meaning similar in the Islamic culture.
Sherlyn815  12/24/2016
Also a Greek combination of Ariadne and Anna.
heyyyyyyyyyyyy  1/10/2017
Yay this is my name! My family as well as myself pronounce it like it is spelled Ari-anna. I hate when people call me Ari or Anna, a great nickname is Annie (this is the one I use). But be prepared for lots of corrections when being addressed by others because this name is pronounced many different ways. And obviously I prefer Narcisa as a middle name because it is mine and it is a rare name. You can find the proper pronunciation on YouTube... but make sure you spell it right or you will get lots of Harry Potter references.

This is my niece's name and she's Canadian. She was born in 2013. It's pronounced [Air-ee-anna] but her parents go by Ari.
RomanCS02  2/12/2017
My name is Arianna, pronounced airy, I want it to be pronounced Ari though. Ironically, I have the same birthday as Arianna Huffington (July 15th). My middle name is Lynn, I think it fits.
ariannaoliver  5/27/2017
My name is Arianna. Middle name being Renee, and I love it, I think it fits. I live in the south in the US, and I hate how often people mispronounce my name. It's pronounced Ah-ree-ah-nah, and my nickname is Ari. More times than not, no matter how many people you meet, most of them will pronounce it differently. From Airy-ah-nah, Airy-anne-nah, to Ah-ree-anne-nah. It really depends on the person. I used to hate my name, but now that I'm older, I love it. Also, I've only met two other people with this name, pronouncing it the same, but they both spelled it differently, but I like it this way the best.
