Personal experiences with the name Ari: | Edit

I know a little boy named Ari that is eight years old, maybe nine. He is as cute as it gets and the name suits him perfectly. I think this name is wonderful even as he gets older. He loves it as well.

My name's Ari. I'm a girl. And it's JUST Ari. Is that weird?

People always ask what Ari is short for. It gets annoying.
