Comments for ARIEL:

I pronounce my name Air-ee-el, I don't think anyone else has said it is like that and I am sick of having my name pronouced Are-ee-el.

Commonly pronounced "AH-ree-el" with "AH" as in back. I've only heard it pronounced AH-ree-el with AH as in father in the Disney movie The Little Mermaid.

In English, the name Ariel is pronounced, 'air-ee-ul.' In Hebrew, French or Spanish, Ariel is pronounced R-E-L. Just like the names, David, Leah or Sarah. These are pronounced differently in English than they are in some other languages, even though the spelling stays the same.

People often call me Ar-yul. It is pronounced Ar-ee-ELL (Like air-ee-elle). I despise any reference to mermaids.

I'm an Israeli and this Jewish HEBREW name is pronounced Are-ee-elle. The "mermaid" totally ruined this other wonderful boy name.

I am learning Hebrew, so I have a decent grasp of the alef-bet. Hebrew (EE-vreet), is always horribly translated. Phonetically, it is pronounced ay-REE-al or AY-ree-AL. With the 'R' a tongue-roll r, like in Spanish. I think it is a lovely name, suitable for boys or girls. I wish "the little mermaid" did not pop into people's minds though.
