Mostly used as a boy’s name, Ari has roots that may be Nordic (meaning “eagle”) and Hebrew (“lion”). It’s a short, strong name commonly given to Jewish babies in English-speaking countries. Real-life Aris include a late Greek millionaire (Onassis), a former White House press secretary (Fleischer) and a current Hollywood talent agent (Emanuel). When the TV show “Entourage,” which featured an Ari Gold character, was airing during the early 2000s, the name was very popular.
