    slothbear :  Spartacus was from the Roman Empire not Ancient Greece (sorry I’m a Classics geek … had to correct) 

    i prefer Ariella, you can call her Ella for short and have a nice compromise between the two.

    Why does he get to pick both names? He named your son so I can’t see why you don’t get to name your daughter? 

    I guess since he carried and birthed them both…oh, wait….

    Twizbe :  That’s funny. I wrote Ancient Rome at first and then edited it to Greece because I thought the name had something to do with Sparta. I learned something new!

    Well now that you’ve said it I can’t unthink it lol. But if you still love it you should use it. An alternative could be Arielle or Ariel though, and could still shorten to Elle or Ella.

    The other name doesn’t really do it for me personally but I don’t see anything won’t with it except maybe the need for your daughter to constantly spell it out to people.

    I don’t like Ariella. It does remind me of areola. It also has 4 syllables, which I think is too many for a first name. My name is pretty long (9 letters) but only has 2 syllables. It also just seems like you’re adding the A at the end for no reason, since Arielle is a more common name. 

    I would not name my child something from GoT, personally. And Ellia also sounds like you’re just adding As to names that don’t need them. 

    I think it’s rude that your husband can get away with only adding 2 names to his list. He needs to rack his brain, do some research, and come back with at least 10, I think.

    Not a fan of Ariella.

    Ellia is better but it makes me think of GoT, and that character and her children did not have a happy ending, to put it lightly.

    Your DH seems a little…controlling…as far as this goes.

    Just remember, your children are the ones that have to carry the names throughout their lives.  I knew a girl named Shakespeare (her dad was an English Lit prof and a huge fan).  While I, too, love William Shakespeare, I felt bad for her as she always got the raised eyebrow look from people whenever she told them her name.  She hated it, especially when she was a kid. She yearned to have a “normal, classic” name like other kids and when she was an adult changed her name.  She was tired of explaining her name to people and just wanted to have something that no one would question.  So definitely think about that when you’re naming your daughter.

    I agree with PPs… Ella is beautiful. Ellia is okay… reminds me of Aaliyah which I like more and have seen spelled differently nowadays (such as Alia). My cousin’s name is Aria and I hear that is a GOT character, so that name is becoming more popular. But I love that name and if it wasn’t my cousin’s name I would choose it if I have a girl. 

    Ariella is okay… I think I like Arielle more. And Aria as I mentioned hehe. But it doesn’t really matter what I or the rest of the internet thinks! Just don’t let your husband bulldoze you into a name you don’t love. I am sure you guys can agree on a name you both love.
