I know it's oh-so-popular, but I'm absolutely in love with Ariana. One of a few names that I would use despite its popularity and "trendiness" just because of how utterly beautiful it is.

Even though I didn't understand half of things you've said, I agree.

I pronounce it Ah-ree-ah-na, but it could also be pronounced Air-ee-ah-naa, Ah-ree-ann-ah or Air-ee-ann-ah.

Same, but my bratty Ariana is the GRANDE herself.

I've met a bratty, whiney Ariana in the past, too! Totally killed the name for me.

I always liked this name until I met one, the little girl is such a spoiled brat it kind of killed it for me. But then I think of Ariana Dumbledore, so that's a nicer connotation.

My name is Ariana but I pronounce it Ahr-yah-nah which is how it is pronounced in Albanian .

How interesting. I pronounce it like that, except for it ends in AH-nah. Well, actually various Ariana's/Arianna's I knew of pronounce it differently.

pretty yet classic name but the associations with Ariana Grande put me off, especially with some of her recent behaviour. Would pronounce it Ah-ree-arn-ah (i'm British)

My niece pronounces it "are-ee-on-ah". I have seen this name pronounced at least 4 different way, but I don't want to post them all. Pretty name.

Ariana Grande is to popular now that if you name your child and there in middle school or high school, the first thing in mind would be Ariana Grande

I really love this name right now and it sounds so pretty. I do think of Ariana Grande when I hear the name but I'm kind of a fan of hers so I don't mind. But is it pronounced with air-ee-on-ah or are-ee-on-ah?
