My best friend is named this after the Audrey Hepburn character in Love in The Afternoon. It's a French name, we pronounce it with more emphasize on the Anne at the end and she's Filipino so it's very interesting but fitting pairing in my opinion.

Sounds too much like "aryan".

Very soft and pretty, though in my opinion you can't beat the spunkiness of the original Ariadne.

DaisyMaisie Says:


i think this is prettier and softer than Ariana. it is kind of exotic too. like this name very much!

Ariane - name of a childhood friend, always thought it was so lovely. she said her mom heard it in connection with a moon goddess which now makes sense seeing its a variation of Ariadne
