Anyone care to offer an honest opinion on the name Ariana (ARE-EE-AHH-NA) with a nickname of Ari (ARE-EE).  Middle name, Grace.

I love Ariana Grace, but Ari is a boy's name to me.

Hmm... the only "Ari" (which is short for Ariana) is a girl.

I don't think Ari sounds masculine at all!  I have a good friend named Ariana who went by Ana as a kid and now goes by Ari... I think it's lovely!  :)

Very cute!!! and I love both Ari and Ana as nicknames.  Ari sounds feminine to me smile.gif  It goes very cute with Grace.

I love it!  I have a friend with this name and she goes by Ari.  I also have a male friend named Aristotle and he goes by Ari.  Both fit their names very well..... I wouldn't be worried about it sounding too masculine - -

Love it. as a younger woman I had a bob tailed coon cat and named her that. Later I had a daughter and couldn't name her after a cat!  We chose Alicia (uh lee see uh) and call her Ali for short. So for you I love it:)

I love the name Ariana. Indeed, Ari IS a boy's name, but has always sounded feminine to me.

 

Want to warn you...a friend's dd is Ariana, and everyone pronounces it Air e anna instead of Ar e anna.  I'm not sure you care, I just wanted to tell you her experience. It drives her nuts.
