Pronounced: ah-ree-AH-nə or ah-ree-AN-nə.

I prefer Arianna over Ariana. Ariana has just been ruined by Ariana Grande, and Arianna is beautiful.

Personal experiences with the name Arianna: | Edit

My name is Arianna and I am 35. I am the oldest Arianna I know in real life (other than Arianna Huffington and a Mexican singer named Arianna). Anyway, I love my name, and I always get plenty of compliments on it. I always thought that if I had a daughter, I would gift her my beautiful name. Well, now I am having second thoughts because every darn baby girl is named Arianna. I hate it that it has become so popular. Stop naming your kids Arianna!

My name is Arianna :) I'm 15 and I adore my name. But I hate when other people have it lol it's my name not yours, a lot of people reference it to Ariana Grande now which is slightly annoying but it's ok :)

My daughter's name is Arianna, but spelled Arionna. She is the only one I have ever met with that name.

My long distance sister Arianna is the sweetest sassiest person I know she's fabulous she's always there to help even if she isn't in the best mood herself.

My name is Arianna and I am 14 I love my name and I love the meaning. But a lot of other people in my life pronounce my name differently and sometimes they call me Ariana Grande witch I don't like but I just tell them not to then they be good.

My name is Arianna. Im seventeen (born way before Ariana Grande became popular) and I still get asked all the time if I was named after her. I don't understand it, but people are crazy. I was named after a character in a book my mother read in high school and fell in love with. I hate that Arianna has become such a popular name, and yet people still don't known how to pronounce it! I feel that if its going to be popular and people are going to be named that, why can't people at least learn how to pronounce it correctly.

My name is Arianna, sometimes I like and other times I hear names I wish were mine, because I feel like they would fit me better. I live in the South so it's always interesting to hear people pronounce it.
