Characteristics of Ariella
Etymology & Historical Origin - Ariella
Ariella is a fanciful and feminized elaboration of the unisex name Ariel. The name Ariel is borne from the Bible as a place name [Isaiah 29:1-2]. “Ah, Ariel, Ariel, / the city where David encamped! / Add year to year; / let the feasts run there round. / Yet I will distress Ariel, / and there shall be moaning and lamentation, / and she shall be to me like an Ariel.” Most etymological sources translate Ariel into the Hebrew word for “Lion of God” or “hero.” It is also sometimes said to mean “alter hearth” which would make sense given the Biblical importance of this place name. Ariel originated as a male given name in the Jewish community, with Arielle and Ariella being strictly feminine forms of the name.
Popularity of the Name Ariella
Ariella just joined the club of American female names in 2008 yet has already risen to respectable levels of usage in a few short years. Both Ariel and Arielle are still more popular than the fancy-pants four-syllable Ariella, though. Brielle and Briella are similar sounding names that most likely attract the same type of parents. The names are serenely breezy if not a little wistful. Ariella is especially feminine, flowery and girly-girl when it comes to naming styles. A lot of people associate this name with a princess and not by mistake. Ariel was the name of Hans Christian Andersen’s “Little Mermaid” (later popularized by Disney). A red haired, blue eyed and green tailed enchantress, Ariel is a role model for little girls the world over, who see her kindness, adventurous nature and her sense of curiosity as highly positive traits. Ariella is just another spin on this charming mermaid name. There are three possible choices when it comes to naming your daughter “lion of God”. Ariel is unisex and therefore a little more tom-boyish. Arielle is French and therefore a little more sophisticated and elegant. Ariella is the frilly version. Ari and Ella are obvious nicknames, although Ariella is a name you hardly want to truncate. Much of her beauty lies in that flowing, fluid and effortless pronunciation. It’s a name with “pretty girl” written all over it.
