    I agree, it would work just fine! I plan on using the nn Bella for Isabelle, which isn't really that different from Ariel nn Ella. I don't think you really need to go for Ariella or Arielle to make Ella more obvious, but I personally would, just because I like that they're more feminine and frilly. I think Ariella nn Ella would be pretty adorable, but if you like Ariel nn Ella more, I don't see any reason why you couldn't use it. I don't think it's that hard to get to Ella from Ariel.

    Good luck!

    In my opinion Ella is a perfect nn for Ariel. Ariel is the kind of name when you and your child have a certain freedom of choosing a nickname. She might be nicknamed Ari, Ella or Elle. I wouldn't even doubt it.

    I don't think so. I think it could work. Heck, I am still tempted to use Ella as a nn for Evangelina, so do what you want!

    pet peeves: nicknames as given names; unconventional spellings; masculine names on girls
    not-so-guilty pleasures: five-syllable girls' names; virtue and nature names; over-the-top antique names for boys
    (if i repeat name suggestions in a thread, it's because i like them! no apologies here for repeats of great names! )

    IF YOU LOVE IT, USE IT!

    I definitely think it's too much of a stretch, they're both completely different names with no etymology connections, and the sounds aren't that close. I think it's way too much to much of a push.

    Why does it matter? It's just a nickname. Some people take nicknames way too seriously.
