our kid is a girl and her first name is ariella. Although we wanna use Vanessa as her middle name, we are worried about whether Vanessa would be too old fashioned. which one is better ariella Vanessa, ariella cadence or ariella harmony?

I like Ariella Cadence the best! Have you considered Ariella Madison? I think it strikes a nice balance between Vanessa and Cadence/Harmony.

Vanessa is beautiful and I don't think it's too old-fashioned. I see it as a classic. Ariella is modern and trendy, so I think Vanessa is a good fit in the middle spot. Harmony feels stripper-ish imo and Cadence is too trendy.

I feel like Ariella Cadence flows the best, and it's beautiful!


Ariella Harmony is pretty, but it feels like a mouthful with the repeating "-ar" sounds. And Vanessa isn't too old-fashioned, but the repeating "-a" sounds might be too matchy.


With all that said, if you like the name go for it and best of luck! :)
