This is my name. I'm 14 and I love it! I havnt met anyone else with my name and I think its pretty. I'm glad my parents chose it for me. Both my sisters and I have named starting with the letter 'A'; Alexandra (Alex), April and Ariana.
i love the name Ariana. one of my favorite celebrities is Ariana Grande too! if i ever changed my name or if i ever have a daughter,Ariana would be one of my top choices
I don't like my name. I'm pronounced as Air-ee-ana, but everyone says it as Ahr-ee-ana. Not to mention the whole Ariana Grande thing. I swear, every time my name was called in school the first day, there'd be someone who'd say "Like Ariana Grande?" My brother has also informed me that the name sounds like (in his words), "one of those mean white girls who bullies you in middle school." Although, it is pretty. So if you like it, you do you.
