I really like Ari, but it seems very rooted in Jewish/Hebrew culture.
The only Aris I have met before have been Jewish.
That being said, I do like it and I think it's definitely a "cool" name,
but would prefer it as a NN for something.

I think Ari works for both male/female.
it can be used as a nn for many female names (Ariana/Arianna, Ariella)

I like it for both genders!!! But on a girl, I'd prefer it as a nn for something fuller.

I LOVE it for a girl! I have never heard of it for a boy. I think it is pretty as a nick name. There is a little girl in my neighborhood named Aria (R-E-uh) who goes by Ari and I think that is beautiful!

I like it and its meaning (lion). But, I do prefer it as a nn for something else longer (especially with your girls' names).

I like it for both sexes, but prefer it as a MN, or as a NN for a longer name (eg Ariana)
