Love my name
written by Arianna, March 19, 2008
There's a Marc Anthony song..where he mentions his daughters name "Arianna." I wonder if it has to do with any of the popularity. Honestly, I was the only Arianna for a long time in my area. But funny story, several of my schoolmate's parents used the name to name their subsequent daughters. In my old school, there were about 3-4 Arianna's by the time I graduated (all much younger than me) who could be traced back to me.

Afghani name

Hi. My daughter was born in 1987. My husband's from Afghanistan, so we named my daughter after his country; the original name of his country was Ariana/Aryana. We did this with two purposes in mind: first, to honor the country that he had to leave, since the Russians killed my husband's father and put my husband in jail for not wanting to be a communist, so he had to leave there, even though he missed his home so badly. Second, we named her with a sense of irony, because the place where we eventually moved was the four state center of the KKK, and we would probably have been killed if we'd lived in Germany about sixty years ago; the thing is, the Afghan, Persian, and surrounding countries were the original Aryan countries, and most certainly didn't look like Hitler's ideal--blond hair, blue eyes, etc. (and yes, some people will say that the original Aryans came from somewhere else, blah, blah, blah, but we don't care--we just love the name).

I love this name- my daughter is almost 8 now and it is becoming quite popular. Though most that I know are spelt Arianna and pronounced "Airy-ana". Still love it!

I first thought of this when reading a bit about celtic mythology, Arianrhod is a figure in welsh mythology, the name Arianrhod meaning Silver Wheel. I've never heard of it here in Australia so I doubt it's popular here. I think it would be pronounced Ah-ree-ah-na, or at least that's what sounds prettiest to me.
My daughter's name
written by Tracy Rose, February 24, 2010
I named my daughter Ariana Marie. We call her Ari. We pronounce it "Are-ree-on-na" not "Airy-anna" which people sometimes say. Marie was my aunt's middle name- she passed away while I was pregnant, so I wanted to include part of her name in my daughter's name. I love this name because it's formal, it has a cute nickname and it's very beautiful.
