Although it’s a popular fixture on baby-name lists in Italy, Ariana is a sweet, smooth-sounding name that crosses over well into English. It’s an extension of the Italian word aria, meaning “air”. It could also be linked to arian, the Welsh word for “silver”. The Persian-origin version is spelt Aryana and means “Aryan land”. Latin, Greek, Middle Eastern: how’s that for diversity in a name!
