Baby Name Riff: Ariel

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

"ariel"

Ariel was one of my favorite names as a kid

I was very into the celestial romantic

and then, there’s Sylvia Plath

to me it conjures sylvia plath and even astral weeks

yes astral is the celestial

its a great name

3-2 vowel consonant ratio is good

there was a song by an extremely cheesy 70’s singer songwriter called Ariel

and the chorus was just the name drawn out over like 14 measures

“AAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAArrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeelllllllllllllllllll”

that sounds good

and kinda like Astral Weeks!

Astral Weeks would be a good YA character name

but i digress

maybe 80s

Astrid+Ariel=Astral

the funny thing is when we started this convo i didn’t even think of the disney princess. but then when i did a quick google…

the Disney thing could be more or less annoying depending on how this particular character endures over the next decade+

but so many good names are used up in movies, Fiona in Shrek…

she’s the mermaid?

i think she’s the mermaid

yes

well, i guess that was a long time ago at this point

though they’ll probably be reissuing it any day now

girls seem to know about Ariel. I think the merch is inescapable

I like that it’s strong and feminine, too.

always a fan of that combo

there are boys named Ariel

it’s a boys name in Israel

which may or may not be an issue

depending on your feelings for Ariel Sharon
