  1. I picked the name Ariel because of my favorite Disney movie the littke mermaid. I love the name Ariel because it means lion of god. I am not religious but to me lions are strong and that means she will make it through anything.

  2. While looking up girl names, we liked the sound of Ariel, plus our other girls have A names as well, and the meaning of it really resonated with us as well. It means lioness of God.

  3. Ariel means lion of God. We chose the name because we struggled to conceive for 3 years so when we conceived our miracle we knew we wanted her to have a name with a special meaning.

  4. When we found out we were pregnant again, we knew he/she would be our last. We wanted our last baby to have a Disney name (we love Disney). When we found out we were having a girl, we knew her name had to be Ariel.

  5. My husband choose the name he said he liked the name and I like it too
