    I did see Arista, but our last name is Carlson, so Arista Carlson kinda sounds like "aristocrat" and that seems too snooty! I can't make my mind up entirely about Aristana, but it is appealing on some level!

    Honestly, Aristana doesn't sound any better.

    Ariston is a legitimate historical name from ancient Greece (a Spartan king, a pretty good poet, etc.), Aristana just sounds like the feminine form (though it prob. was something more like Aristaea). I love it!

    Maybe I should qualify that I am reading/pronouncing it "Air-i-stau-na" - even though it is "Air-i-stan-a" on other websites I looked up Aristaea, and it is a type of moth! It is interesting to think of other extrapolations of the name...
