It is too princessy and vowel-y for my taste, I guess. There's nothing inherently wrong with it, but much like Ella, I feel like Ariana is just a few syllables that mean 'girl born after 2000'. I don't like most names that barely require you to move your mouth to say them. They feel insubstantial to me.

I love this name, think it sounds so pretty. The nickname Ari is so cute too.

I love this name, especially since it’s associated with the immensely TALENTED and alluring Ariana Grande. I would probably give this either as a first or middle name for my future daughter!

Actually, this name isn't that modern. On Find a Grave, I found at least four bearers (all female) from the 18th and 19th centuries, the earliest being born in 1755. The name seems to have dropped out of use sometime during the mid-19th century, and then revived well over a century later. Obviously it was nowhere near as common back then as it has been in the past few decades.

Ariana Mamiko Miyamoto is a Japanese model and beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss Universe Japan 2015. She represented Japan at the Miss Universe 2015 pageant, but after her victory she encountered some people disapproving of her win, mostly in the form of online social media, for not being of typical Japanese appearance; she is the first hāfu woman to be Miss Japan.

Ariana is a very beautiful name, but everybody always shames it because of Ariana Grande. I like her voice and all, but she is a total diva...

This name is beautiful, but the only problem is that there's various ways it can be pronounced. I like it to pronounced Are-ee-ah-na.

My name is Ariana but I spell it way differently. How you spell it is Areonia. A lot of people say it wrong, and at school when it's a new teacher or a sub, everyone laughs when they say it wrong. I get really embarrassed. But I guess I'm used to it now. I like my name and a lot of people like it too. They say my name is unique by the spelling which I also agree, I guess.

Sounds like the name of a snobby Italian-American girl. Ariana Grande exactly fits the bill.

This is my cousin's name, and I love it. It's just such a beautiful name. I like long names with too many vowels, especially I's and A's, so it's not surprising that this is one of my favorite names.

I agree with Buneary... Ariana Grande COMPLETELY ruined the name for me. All I can think of when I hear this name is the rude, dumb, no-talent diva that I can't escape. Just choose Arianne.

A beautiful strong name. Some of the most talented and successful women in the world are named named Ariana or a variation of it eg "Ariana Grande" and "Arianna Huffington". Love it!

Ariana Grande has really ruined this name. I sure wouldn't like a name associated with a no-talent diva who's rude towards her fans.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Aside from being a bit too trendy for my tastes, this one makes me think of a "soap opera princess".

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.

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.

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.

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.
