We have decided on Gabriella Louise Bryant for our little girl. Nn will be Gabby. It finally feels like the name.
What do people think ?

Lovely. Not faddish or over popular but a proper grown up name

I love it but dh had an ex gf of that name. smile

I love it, but I would probably go with grabrielle as I wouldn't want Ella as a possible nickname. Suits young to old, go for it.

Gabriella is beautiful!

Personally I'm not keen on Gabby...sounds too much like Gobby, but it's probably unavoidable.

Love love love it! I need another girl to call her Gabriella!

It's lovely. Agree I'd go Gabrielle though, rather than an -ella name. But not a big deal.

Love it!

I love it!

Love love love Gabriella but DP didn't like it so I didn't get to use it sad

Not so keen on the nicknames so I wouldn't have shortened it if we had chosen it.

I love it, though DH doesn't.

If I used it I would just keep it Gabriella though. But that is just me. I have two DCs with names that can be shortened, and so far we have been able to use their actual names. Though as they get older it might change among their friends.

I really don't like it, sorry. Feels very big-hair 1980s school princess to me. Coupled with Louise it seems very dated.

Absolutely love it, but would have Bella or Ella as a nickname.

LemonBreeland Tue 17-Nov-15 13:57:20

I love Gabriella, and have a friend with a 4yo with that name. I dislike Gabby as a nn, I think it sounds harsh. My friend has so far stopped the use of Gabby.

Lovely but agree that Gabby not so nice. I would go with Elle, Ellie or Bella as ann

VocationalGoat Tue 17-Nov-15 14:00:51

One of my favourites. flowers

Brummiegirl15 Thu 19-Nov-15 23:10:48

I absolutely love it, but I cannot bear Gabby as a nn and for that reason it's not on my list for DD

I don't like the Gab sound, it's a bit harsh.

ExBallerina Fri 20-Nov-15 01:33:25

I like it but don't like Gabby. Elle/Ella just sounds nicer.

*as a nn.
