I love my name it's very unique and I'm happy to see so many people love it as well, but since my name is pronounced R-ree-L people get it wrong all the time also i get constantly compare to the little mermaid.

Yeah... Ariel is originally a boy's name. So Arielle is definitely more feminine :) I love that name

Oh man, I love this name. This has been my absolute number 1 favourite for about 5 years. If my future husband doesn't like Arielle, I don't know what I'll do! I hope one day I can name my daughter Arielle. It's just such a beautiful name.
