Prefer Arianne.
People might prononcw ariane arry-ane.
Marianne is nicer still

I think I also prefer Arianne. I agree that Marianne is nicer still.

I like Arianna. It's becoming more mainstream - I've heard of a couple of children called Arianna in the last few years.

I prefer Ariana.

I like Arianne or Arianna (I think Ariana would get pronounced Ari-are-nah)

BlueStarsAtNight Wed 19-Feb-14 09:15:27

Arianne Lucy
Arianne Clara
Arianne Jocelyn
Arianne Lyra
Arianne Eliza

I don't think the spelling matters too
much but I prefer Ariana to Ariane simply because I generally prefer names ending in an 'a' sound as they're softer in my view. Likewise while I like Sophie I prefer Sophia.

Definitely Ariane. Much prettier imo.

MrsRV Wed 19-Feb-14 12:53:35

Ariane Isobel??? what do people think?

Tea1Sugar Wed 19-Feb-14 13:59:37

Yay you've found a name :D

BlueStarsAtNight Wed 19-Feb-14 14:15:53

I like it !

MrsRV Wed 19-Feb-14 15:51:00

yes Tea... at last! I really really love it the more I think about it. Hubs said he liked it lastnight so I'm hoping to persuade him it's the one.

HyvaPaiva Wed 19-Feb-14 15:52:56

Ariane is lovely

moggle Wed 19-Feb-14 16:06:36

I like it! I have only ever known one Ariane, I really didn't like her, but weirdly it hasn't put me off the name, so it must be a good one :-)
Personally prefer it with one N.

It's pretty. But I prefer Arianna Isabella ;)
