Find out the meaning behind the name Ariel.

The name Ariel is a boy's name of Hebrew origin meaning "lion of God". Despite its distinguished pedigree and popularity in Israel, Disney's Little Mermaid cartoonized Ariel in the US. Short form Ari has come into prominence via the less than admirable character in Entourage. Though Ariel has been on the rise for boys in recent years and flat for girls, the gender divide still leans heavily toward the feminine, with more than three times as many baby girls named Ariel as boys in the US.
