I really like this name as a male name, too bad the little mermaid gave it a feminine connotation. Another cool fact is that you have a girl’s name with an anagram of Ariel: Leira.

This is one of my favourite names for a boy. I think it’s rather strong sounding, especially when you know the meaning.
