Do you like Mabel ?

I love it hubby not to keen, but I think it’s so cute and pretty xx

I would like it more had not the ghastly Russell Brand called his child that. On principal, I would avoid it simply because he used the name. However, your DH needs to like the name, too.

Love it.

RavenWings Mon 30-Oct-17 20:42:02

No, I think it's awful.

AnyaMoondial Mon 30-Oct-17 20:43:58

It's cute.

I really like it but decided against it for our daughter as we thought kids at school might sing "maybe it's Mabelline" at her!

No I don’t like it either

DD2's middle name is Maybellene. After the song by Chuck Berry, not the brand. DH wanted it as her first name, but I don't think he realises just how big the brand is. grin

As 'granny chic' names go it's not too bad, but I'm not mad on it.

It's no good anyway if your DH isn't keen.

I love it, desperately wanted no name my last DD Mabel but OH overruled as he hated it. Still think about it wistfully....

Lovely name for a cat

babsthebuilder Mon 30-Oct-17 21:21:06

Love it

I like it! Also have met three baby Mabels in the past year, so I think it's becoming more popular.

PaperdollCartoon Mon 30-Oct-17 21:24:32

I like it a lot.

Passthecake30 Mon 30-Oct-17 21:25:01

I don't like it at all

MoanerChopsis Mon 30-Oct-17 21:26:00

Makes me think of 'Mad About You'!! Their baby was called Mabel, as an acronym for Mothers Always Bring Extra Love.

Which might make you like the name more or absolutely ruin it for you grin

Love it

PandaCat Mon 30-Oct-17 21:43:39

I like it, agree with others though, it's no good if your husband really doesn't like it.

Its lovely.

It's fine although I know 2 born this year so perhaps it's gaining popularity.

squirrelonapetridish Tue 31-Oct-17 10:52:11

Also wanted to call dd it but dh thought it was too granny... I love it.

UserThenLotsOfNumbers Tue 31-Oct-17 10:54:05

Personally I like it, but it’s a marmite name. Be prepared for criticism from others.

minipie Tue 31-Oct-17 10:57:13

Very marmite. I used to really like it but now find it quite frumpy.


NoParticularPattern Tue 31-Oct-17 10:59:54

I like the name but sadly parents have a dog called Mabel so it’s definitely a no. Doesn’t help that the dog is a little shite so it doesnt exactly evoke adorable little girl name feelings!!

In the same boat as Martha and Mary. It isn't awful but it's really not very good either - a bit granny chic and at risk of becoming very popular I think.
