    Ari Marie/Ari-Marie/AriMarie?

    So just thinking about names I came up with this one, I really like it as Ari-Marie (as a middle) and I sorta like it as AriMarie (as a middle) but Ari Marie (as a first and middle) just seems to short.

    So questions! :P

    1.) Ari Marie, Ari-Marie or AriMarie?
    2.) General thoughts? Cute? Weird?
    3.) Combos please?

    These two names don't flow well because they're so similar. MARIe contains the name Ari in it so they're too matchy. Besides, I've never understood hyphened middle names at all.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    If you say the names 'arry' (rhymes with carry) and 'mah-REE' it's not so bad. But if you're pronouncing Ari as 'ah-ree' (to rhyme with starry) then I think it's too matchy.

    I agree that Ari and Marie could be really, really matchy. Why not something like Ariana Marie, Arianne Marie, Aurelia Marie/Aurelie Marie, Aurora Marie, etc.? And you could still use Ari as a nn? Even Ari-Marie, if you wanted. Even saying arry-mah-ree, or AIR-ee muh-REE, I think they sound really, really close.
