US Popularity:12570
Origin:Hebrew
Meaning:lion of God
Stepping out from Ariel's shadows and the deep-rooted Disney ties, gender-neutral name Arel demonstrates the courageous heart of its etymology. Hebrew in origin, Arel stems from the biblical Ariel, which means "lion of God"—a far cry from the famous fictional mermaid. Being purposeful in its variance, Arel may find admirable attributes in its meaning alone as a fierce protector, valiant fighter, and noble leader.
