I agree, it would work just fine! I plan on using the nn Bella for Isabelle, which isn't really that different from Ariel nn Ella. I don't think you really need to go for Ariella or Arielle to make Ella more obvious, but I personally would, just because I like that they're more feminine and frilly. I think Ariella nn Ella would be pretty adorable, but if you like Ariel nn Ella more, I don't see any reason why you couldn't use it. I don't think it's that hard to get to Ella from Ariel.

pet peeves: nicknames as given names; unconventional spellings; masculine names on girls
not-so-guilty pleasures: five-syllable girls' names; virtue and nature names; over-the-top antique names for boys
(if i repeat name suggestions in a thread, it's because i like them! no apologies here for repeats of great names! )
IF YOU LOVE IT, USE IT!

I definitely think it's too much of a stretch, they're both completely different names with no etymology connections, and the sounds aren't that close. I think it's way too much to much of a push.

Why does it matter? It's just a nickname. Some people take nicknames way too seriously.
