Before that stupid little mermaid ever existed, Ariel was usually a man's name, although it can be feminine too. It's a Jewish name found in the Hebrew Scriptures (Ezra 8:16 and Isaiah 29:1-2,7).

According to the Strong's Hebrew dictionary it literally means "Lion of God" it can also be interpreted to mean "Mighty Lion" (Proverbs 28:15; Nahum 2:11;
2 Samuel 23:20; 1 Chronicles 11:22). It can symbolically refer to Jerusalem because the symbol for the Jewish tribe among the 12 tribes of Israel was a lion.
When pronounced the original way it's supposed to sound more like: Ah-ree-EL, or Aw-ree-EL, NOT Air-ree-yell. The former Prime Minister of Israel's first name was also Ariel. Just ask any Jew, they'll tell you.

Otherwise, it makes a nice girl's name when it's pronounced Disney-style.
"Ariel, you really are God's favorite cat."

The mermaid princess daughter of King Triton, ruler of Atlantica, in the Disney movie The Little Mermaid. Ariel is the best out of all of the Disney princesses, because she has the most amazing voice and is a gorgeous mermaid. She also saves the prince!
