Ariane/Arianne is the only form I've ever heard on a person. One girl (Ariane) was French, but the other (Arianne) was Scottish. I've also heard of a couple of other Ariannes who are British.
I've never met an Ariadne or heard of anyone called Ariadne but the name would be familiar to most people as the name of the mythological character (am I correct in thinking that in French she is called Ariane?).
Anyway while Ariadne may be familiar Arianne is definitely more common as a name in the UK (although it is still uncommon.)
I hope this helps/makes sense!

Arianne and Arianna/Ariana are absolutely used in English speaking places. Ariadne is a completely different name and is a Greek mythological figure.
Over here in the US, you'll usually get these sorts of pronunciations:
Arianna -- ah-ree-ann-ah
Ariana -- ah-ree-ah-nah
Arianne -- ah-ree-ann
Ariadne -- air-ee-add-nee (this is how you say it in Greek)http://www.amazon.com/Angel-Blackwood/e/B00SARZLFY -- My Amazon Author Page
