According to this site the name Ariana is probably a variant of Ariadne.

Howver, Ariana is a pretty common persian name and is supposedly related to the Indo-European root meaning "noble" than is also the source of the words Iran and Aryan.

Is this a case of a single name with two unrelated sources in different cultures?
