Meanings and history of the name Arienne

Welsh, meaning silvery.
Some references also identify it as the French version of Ariadne.

Amplifying on the earlier user's comments: there is a Welsh name root arian ("silver-white") that's seen in names like Arianwen, and Arianne is the French version of Ariadne. But Arienne seems to be at its core a modern creation.

There is an Arienne registered on a Northern Ireland birth certificate in the 16th century which I have a copy of. It isn't a modern creation but is not a common name as it's pronunciation is not clear for those from the gaelic countries. The name whilst not common is generally viewed as old english and derived from the welsh gaelic 'arian' meaning silver.
