    Default Thoughts on Ari??

    I have always loved Arie for a little girl but after our 19week scan it appears we will be having a little boy join our family.

    I just wanted to know your thoughts on Ari for a boy. Is it too odd/foreign??

    Love it!!! Ari suits a boy more than a girl (I think ) - reminds me of Ari Gold off entourage - and he rocked!!!

    I like Arial or Aria more so for a girl - but hey that's just me

    Ari reminds me of NCIS, or Ari Shamron, Israeli spymaster... I like it.

    I like Ari and have considered it if we have a son at some point. I did have the same thoughts as you though as to whether it was too 'foreign' and while we have decided against it I still like it

    Makes me instantly think of Ari Gold from Entourage... I LOVE Ari Gold, so yeah, I'm okay with it.

    I always think of Ari as a boys name, although I do know a girl called Ariella who gets Ari for short.

    I think Ari for a boy is great, it was on our short list - but we have 3 girls.
