    wdyt of Auriana ?

    What do you think when you hear Auriana?
    Do you honestly line it?
    How would you pronounce it
    - some places pronounce the 'au' as a 'o'?

    I used to work with an Aurianna, so I instinctively think of her. She pronounced it ar-ee-ah-nah, so that's how I say it, too. I like the traditional spelling--Ariana (and I can even take Arianna, but I do prefer Ariana vastly)--but I'm not a huge fan of Auriana/Aurianna. But in general I am a fan of the name. The very similar Arianne (air-ee-anne) is my second favorite girls' name.

    I'd go with Au- (like at the beginning of Aurora) and considering I already have Aurora and Aurelia on my list one would think I'd take to Auriana like a moth to flame... but alas, it always feels like a smoosh name to me. Like a mix of Aurora and Adrianna. jnms.

    Eh, I don't like it. Never been a fan of the Ar- sound. Aria, Ariadne, etc...
