"We have an Ariana and picked her name because of the meaning...holy. We pronounce Are-ee-ahnna not Airy. People more often say Airy though here in MD. We looked up before she was born that Are-ee-ahnna is the phonetically correct pronunciation but Airy-anna also has a very pretty sound to it." Sep. 23, 2012:

"My beautiful, full-of-spunk niece is Ariana.
People have mispronounced it many times. It's not AIR-e-ana but AW-ree-ahna.

"I named my daughter Ariana in 1995, so in 2002 when I had another daughter, I named her Aliviah ( think Olivia) I wanted the spelling to be different from the slave name standard, and I wanted another a name. Regardless, Ariana is a beautiful name, and I think that it is outragously beautiful for a mixed race child." Sep. 10, 2009:

"We are naming our daughter Ariana. I'm still trying to choose which pronunciation to go with.. I think I like Ahr-ee-ah-na the best.

"My name is Ariana, but it is pronounced Air-ee-anna (not awna, anna). I am pretty sure that when my parents named me, they thought that the correct pronunciation was Air-ree-anna (like Mariana) but they were wrong.... Guess its just a new or different way to say it! Most people pronounce it the correct way, so I just have to tell them the "incorrectly correct" way my family says it. Oh well... I think all pronunciations are very pretty! :)" Jul. 9, 2012:
