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 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! :)

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.
