Baby Name Riff: ArielCeridwen Morris and Rebecca Odes
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
that sounds good
and kinda like Astral Weeks!
Astral Weeks would be a good YA character name
but i digress
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
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
