Opinions on Ariana please...

dementedma Sun 20-Oct-13 19:51:49

Makes me think of Ariadne.
And spiders.

Love it

AndHarry Sun 20-Oct-13 19:54:13

I love it.

Too many vowels.

Very frilly and flowery and Disney-esque.

Not keen.

Theironfistofarkus Sun 20-Oct-13 19:56:47

Love it. The sort of name I wish I had.

Dilligufdarling Sun 20-Oct-13 19:56:54

How would you say it?
Areye-anna don't like at all
Aree-arna like alot

Love it...but it's DD's name grin she's 2.5 and it's steadily rising in popularity. We spell it Ariana, so that (hopefully) people pronounce it correctly 'Ar ree ar na' as opposed to 'Ah ree Anna'...personal preference I suppose. When she was born we had a lot of compliments but recently have had a few 'blank stares' and polite smiles. I think people think 'omg they're nazi's' with the whole Arian race thing....totally zero connection. It means Silver in welsh or god like in Latin....and has strong Persian links too. Sorry for the essay haha!

Ar Ree Ah Nah i think

Dilligufdarling Sun 20-Oct-13 20:05:15

In that case - love it! grin

Dislike. Too fussy. And pronouncing it with a long second 'a' reminds me of people who used to say "It's not Tanya it's Taaaarr-nya".

chattychattyboomba Sun 20-Oct-13 20:31:45

I know 2 Tanya's (pronounced Tar Nya)...not fussy...just another way to say it.

It's Persian.

Lovely, also like Ariadne (I know some don't like the spider link) and Arianwen which are similar.

ChocolateBiscuitCake Tue 22-Oct-13 21:46:04

Sounds too much like Areola - don't like, sorry!

Love it!

But only because of Ariana Dumbledore... though that is a veryyyyyyyy obscure reference!

Ariadne has nothing to do with spiders, that's Arachne! :-) Nevertheless Ariana is a lovely, lovely name!

comeandgo Fri 01-Nov-13 09:32:06

Love it!

First heard it in Sopranos and loved it then.

PinkParsnips Fri 01-Nov-13 09:35:50

I have a friend called Ariana I think its lovely! She gets Ari for short.

fifi669 Fri 01-Nov-13 09:53:40

Love it smile

Love it! Went to school with a couple (outside Uk) and have always thought its a really pretty name.

VenusDeWillendorf Fri 01-Nov-13 11:14:06

I love Ariadne, and also Aryana and Arianna. Very New York.

AlwaysOneMissing Fri 01-Nov-13 20:53:41

I like it, it's very pretty.
I love Ariella too.

DramaAlpaca Fri 01-Nov-13 20:55:45

It's pretty. I know an Arianne & that is nice too.

SS3J Wed 06-Nov-13 14:27:09

I went to school with an Ariane. I think I prefer that. It's French I think. Ariana is a nice name though, go for it!
