"i wish i had the name arielle, its the best name ever!!" Mar. 29, 2019:
"my wife and I chose this name for our daughter, we did not know the gender of our baby to be. If it was a boy it would have been Josiah Ariel, a girl Arielle Marie,the Marie fits with the French form, however both our moms were named Mary and Maria, so also a tribute to our moms. We chose biblical names" Mar. 8, 2019:
"My name is Arielle pronounced AIR-EE-YUL but people always spell it wrong. It it most commonly mistakenly spelled ?Ariel? and it?s almost always pronounced wrong. Most people see it and prounounce it ?AR-EE-EL?. It?s a bit annoying since very few people got it right on the first try, but the name is pretty annoying and I like the unique spelling.l!"

"My name is Arielle, pronounced AIR-EEE-ELLE and I love it! People get it wrong all the time, especially because I was born after the little mermaid came out so people mispronounce it as "air-ee-ull". I like "air-eee-elle", (my pronunciation), much better and I love the spelling. The extra "LE"at the end creates the "ELLE" sound instead of "ull". I've never met anyone with the same spelling as mine, I've only met "ariel"'s. Some pronounce it the same as me, but most say "air-eee-ull". Only a few people I've met can pronounce my name correctly on the first try! And Starbucks workers are notorious for spelling it "ariel", "Arial", and even "Muriel"! But I guess that's the price we Arielle's have to pay for having such a cool unique name ;)" Jul. 26, 2015:
"My name is Arielle. It's Hebrew and means Lioness of God. I've always loved it. I pronounce it Airy-elle. People always get it wrong. I love that not many people have it and I love the meaning. If I have a daughter in the future I have no idea what I will name her because I think my name is the most beautiful girls name in the world! I'm almost 29 so I was about 5 years old when the Little Mermaid came out so obviously that was perfect for me! My parents got the name from Shakespeare's The Tempest, there is a male character named Ariel so they just added the extra L and E to use the feminine version." Oct. 28, 2013:
"I Love the name, I actually want to name my daughter Arielle... I love the meaning the spelling and it is just perfect! I get it from my moms middle name mARIE and my husbands moms name coLLEen.... Hope i get to use it!" Sep. 24, 2010:
"My name is Arielle too. I love my name because it's unique in my area. I'm pretty sure I'm the only Arielle at my school. My mom got the idea from (what else?) the Little Mermaid but tacked on the "le" on the end of it. The irony of having a unique name has been that some people can't remember it! I tell them that when they see me, think of the Little Mermaid. It's worked so far!" Dec. 22, 2009:
"My Daughter is Arielle. Pronounced R-E-L. I love the name, it really suits her! I first saw it on the credits for American Pie Band Camp (actress Arielle Kebble). Love the way it looked so did some research into how I wanted to pronounce it!" Dec. 9, 2009:
"My sister's name is Arielle. But it is pronounced "Are-ee-elle" much more prettier than Ariel." Aug. 30, 2009:
"My name is Arielle and I love it!
everyone always says Ariel like the mermaid. that used to drive me crazy when I was younger. When people mispronounce my name, i always tell them to spell the word relish. They then say R-E-L.... and I say stop! that is my name.... R-E-L that is how it is pronounced!" Aug. 11, 2009:
"I LOVE my name!!! most people pronounce it R-E-L though, but I pronounce it A-REE-ELLE!
I think its cool cuz i dont know that many people named Arielle, and I'm glad to know that there actually are others!!! :)" Feb. 12, 2009:
"wow,people always get my name wrong. i've had my name pronounced ways that i cant even pronounce but i love my name. its really different. i have to tell people to say it like the letters R-E-L. thats what i always do because thats how you pronounce my name. but i get my name spelt ariel ariell ariella [even though its not even pronounced with an a haha] and so many more. love my name though."

"Ohemgee people! Like, Arielle is a gorgeous name fo sho! It's radical! Gnarly, even! Why, if I could change my name Arielle would be the one! Or Ariel if I had to. Arial and Arialle are ugly names, but Arielle and Ariel are gorgeous/gnarly/radical!" Jul. 25, 2007:
"I love my name Arielle;however, my family calls me Ari (R-REE) for short. It makes interesting conversation whenever I meet someone new. I too am often called Ariel or the Little Mermaid. I tell people that it is pronounced how Sebastian says it in the movie." Jan. 3, 2007:
"Arielle is my first name.
The "Little Mermaid" came out when I was in kindergarten. All the little girls wanted to be my friend, and asked me if I was really the little mermaid. I happened to have long strawberry blonde hair. I only knew of one other girl named Arielle until I was about 16 then it seemed like there were lots of little three and four year olds named Arielle. However they are most often spelled Ariel. ( I ask )
Now that I am older I some times myself tell people " you know like the little mermaid" In order to get them to understand the pronounciation, and for my name to stick in their head.
I have often been called April, Arlene, and all sorts of strange mixtures. However, I am often complimented on what a beautiful, and unique name it is! I deffinatly like my name now that I am older." Nov. 9, 2006:
"My daughter's middle is Arielle, but I pronounce it Ahr-ee-elle which is the French pronunciation and spelling." Apr. 19, 2006:
"My name arielle is awsome. I get called the little mermaid alot (espially of my last name being short) but thats okay. I usally have to explain that my name means lioness of god, but is also french for Gabriel the angel of Jerusalem. In my experiance with the name I have been called Arnel, Aril, Uriel, and many others it is quite funny actually." Oct. 1, 2005:

"My name is Arielle, pronounced AR-EE-ELLE. I love the name, and the meaning but am constantly called Ariel, Airelle, and am always asked if I?m named after the little mermaid. Which I?m not. Also absolutely no one can spell my name right on the first try." Sep. 23, 2019:
"The name Arielle is the best in my opinion. My name is arielle and I pronounce it (airy-elle-lee) this name is so unique and beautiful I wish I can name my child arielle becajse this name is very beautiful" Nov. 19, 2016:
"My sister's name is Arielle (ah-REE-ehl). My mom used to always get mad because people thought she was named after The Little Mermaid even though she was born years before it came out. I love the name. I feel it's a classic, unique name that never gets old." Dec. 7, 2015:
"My name is Arielle to and I absolutely love how unique and wonderful it sounds and is spelled. It's so elegant and amazing!!! What I do have to say about it is that I often am thought of as an Ariana because of my nickname which has been Ari ever since I was a little girl and yes a lot of the time it is pronounced like Ariel but other than that I absolutely love my name and the wonderful meaning behind it (it means gods lion)."

"I love the name Arielle that is my name but hate when they say Ariel because I that's not my name" Jan. 13, 2015:
"My name is Arielle too pronounced air- ee - ul! I honestly love my name ! It's so elegant and creative sounding! But I wasn't born after the little mermaid I was named after the name ariel in the bible which means lioness if god. I am 14 years old" Jul. 21, 2014:
"My name is Arielle. I pronounce it R-E-L. People often pronounce it like the little mermaid and often spell it Ariel. I have a friend who spells her name "Ariel" yet it pronounced like mine. I guess anytime you encounter someone with the name, you should ask how they like it to be pronounced. Trust me, they'll like you a lot after!" Jun. 7, 2006:
