Means loveable I believe.
I like it for a little girl but would it be awful for a teenager/grown woman?

I had a great aunty Mabel. never tought about it before but actually it's quite cute for a little girl!

I havent heard it for years though. Definately different!

I used to know a Mabel on UK Chat, I thought it was an old fashioned name but she suited it perfectly. She used Mabs or Bel for short.

My 6 year old DS has a Mabel in his year group.

It's hideous.

It's gorgeous, my fave girls name

I associate it with dogs. Or cows. Sorry. :/

Love it actually, never thought of it before. Good nicknames: May or Belle/Bella. Cute for little one and quite striking for a teenager/adult. Go for it if you're brave enough for something different!

Lovely name

tanmu82 Sat 20-Nov-10 11:02:35

eeeewwwwww, can't believe so many of you actually like it....

BibiThree Sat 20-Nov-10 11:05:03

Adore it. Think it's a beaut of a name. Also Mabli, but if you're not Welsh ...

LittleYellowTeapot Sat 20-Nov-10 11:09:12

Love it. Not sure I'd be brave enough to use it though. But I do think it's a beautiful name.

I know a teenge Mabel - it has never been an issue for her. She is Mabe or Mabes for short and it really suits her. A gorgeous name!

Go for it smile

letsblowthistacostand Sat 20-Nov-10 11:17:04

Love it. Want to have another girl just so I can use it.

JetLi Sat 20-Nov-10 11:20:04

Thanks all - I'm getting ever so keen on it, the more I think about it smile

Thanks LadyInPink - Mabes does sound quite grown up for when she's older.
