    Adryana...

    I know, I know. It's a butchered spelling, trust me I know!

    Unfortunately I've haboured this fondness for it...I don't know why or how.
    Is it workable? If not, talk me out of my madness - point out all the reasons why not. :P

    EDIT: Oh, oh, what about Adriyana? *hides in shame*

    I like it but I prefer Adriana mostly because I said Ay-dry-ar-na

    Aside from looking kree8tiv in the worst way, the -y changes the pronunciation from Ah-dree-ah-nah to Ah-dry-yannah. Y's and I's are not interchangeable. It isn't the same name.

    Having the word "dry" in it is enough to sway me, you have succeeded! Perhaps I'll throw it into a story idea for use. :P
    All I can see is "A dry..."

    I am vastly preferential to Adriyana. Adryana looks kree8tiphve, but Adriyana changes the pronunciation every so slightly to make it even PRETTIER.

    Ay-dree-AH-nuh

    compared to

    Ay-dree-YAH-nuh

    I actually LIKE the second one! haha. It also looks more complete; Y is an iffy vowel at best, and the I keeps things cohesive and fluid.

    Also, Adriyana > Adriana
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.
