girl's name that sounds a bit like...

(59 Posts)

Annabel.

ie: it needs three syllables. Quite a middle class/upper class name. Someone you'd imagine to be slightly reserved but terribly polite.

and before I get jumped on this is for a character in a story! grin

Genevieve

Christabel, as in Pankhurst.

Is there a reason why you can't use Annabel as that's what you're picturing for your character? What about Juliet or Beatrice. I would put Annabel, Juliet and Beatrice in the same sort of category.

How old is this person? Naming trends change.

Breathing: can't use it because I've used it before.

A rude one

and she's about 25 I guess
