I feel like I like this name but then again it's the cliche "pretty girl" name like Sophia. Loses it's luster for me.

If you think to much about Arianna Grande you might want to go for Aria. I think it is a different name but they sound very similar. So I would recommend Aria, you can still do the nickname Ari.

Cute nickname Ari.

Kisa Says:


Pretty name that's a bit frilly for my taste, but I certainly think it's usable. I don't care about the association to the singer, people fall in and out of fame all the time, but the beauty of the name remains.

I don't think I could use this name, because of the association with Arianna Grande. It's like the name Rihanna, it's good but everyone's going to think of the singer. I like the name Arianne though.

This is my daughters name and I love it! My grandmothers name was Ana and I really wanted to name my daughter after her. While searching online I came across Arianna and I knew that was it. I also thought my daughter would like this name as she grew older. She's now 7 years old and I'm so happy that she loves her name.
