Arianna is sometimes considered a Welsh name from the word "arian," meaning “silver,” or the Latinized form of Ariadne, a Greek name meaning “most holy.” Equally fit for a pop princess or a CEO, Arianna Huffington, founder of the Huffington Post, and pop singer Ariana Grande put this elegant and feminine name front and center. According to Social Security Administration data, Arianna is the second most popular spelling and only slightly behind Ariana in the rankings. Whichever spelling you prefer, both options come with the nicknames Ari, Anna or Ana.
