What do you think of Ariadne? Ariadne Florence. I have an Amelia. Are Amelia and Ariadne too much of a mouthful? Amelia is 17 and doesn't live at home.

I love it on its own. It is a bit of a mouthful with ameliorate, but I don't think you will be saying it that much as your older one doesn't live at home.

Amelia *

i like it but I prefer Arianne.

I love it. Sounds beautiful, lovely to say and not heard often.
I think Amelia and Ariadne also sound lovely together, and since you won't be trying to yell both names at toddler group should be fine.
However, I am arachnophobic so even though I appreciate the beauty of the name it does make me feel a bit creeped out due to the association

You're thinking of Arachne, Ariadne was the figure from the Minotaur myth iirc . I love it, it's a lovely name.

I love it!

Are your girls going to be close in age? Because you might be fending off questions about if they're twins with two A names grin

That being said there's no reason you cant use it! Its a lovely name and not too much of a mouthful. You'll find you wont say "Amelia and Ariadne" much, you'll probably say "the girls" and when introducing "this is Amelia and this is Ariadne" so it wont be like their entire lives will be a tongue twister grin

I love it! (I wanted it for one of mine but my husband didn't agree)

EssentialHummus Thu 29-Sep-16 08:51:16

I really like it.

Trulymadlymotherly Thu 29-Sep-16 08:59:59

Beautiful. It was high on my list for a girl.

I love it! Think it goes fine with Amelia but also agree people might think they're twins of close in age. That wouldn't bother me particularly though.

Lovely OP.

DH was really keen to call DD1 Ariadne. We ended up with an Amelia. Still think it is a lovely name though.

Raines100 Thu 29-Sep-16 12:03:07

Ariadne is a great name. It's close enough to Amelia to think twice, but not close enough to stop you going for it. I think it will be fine.

Curls must have grown up in the '90s, as there were a couple of spiders called Ariadne on kids tv shows on CBBC back then. Wouldn't let it put you off, though.

Fabulous name, go for it!

MadamePeacock Thu 29-Sep-16 12:23:50

There will be 18 years between the girls with other kids in between, including one other A name (Alfie). I wanted to avoid using the same letters again especially on the same sex but I'm in love with Ariadne nn Ari/Aria.

skyyequake Thu 29-Sep-16 12:26:24

Oh 18 years? Definitely go for it, I doubt anyone would think twice about it apart from very annoying people

I would guess that she'd end up being called Ari at school, unless she hates it and snaps at everyone "it's Ariadne!!!" grin

CousinCharlotte Thu 29-Sep-16 12:27:03

I think it's lovely smile

Honeybee79 Thu 29-Sep-16 14:21:48

lovely name.

Fuckingbollocksbugger Thu 29-Sep-16 14:58:20

Heinous IMO.

Leirope Thu 29-Sep-16 15:25:46

Love it. It was on our list of girls names before we found out DS was a boy (who also has a name from Greek mythology).

kittykatval Thu 29-Sep-16 20:44:57

Absolutely beautiful

ScarletSienna Thu 29-Sep-16 20:47:53

Love it!
