Is that a spelling mistake?

Not a spelling mistake.
Annabel but with an 'm'.
Am-a-bel. Maybe belle for short.

Not good. Sounds like a mistake. Too much like Annabel.

KirstyJC Wed 14-Aug-13 22:33:27

Nope, sorry - a lifetime of getting it spelled wrong and mispronounced. Annabel is lovely though.

CoteDAzur Wed 14-Aug-13 22:33:31

Seriously? It was funny as a spelling mistake.

nilbyname Wed 14-Aug-13 22:34:23

Forever having to explain that it is not a spelling error? Rubbish.

If said in my hometown accent, it would sound like lazy speaking - particularly as it would go Ama - bewl.

Are you on the south coast? What accent would it be said in?

nilbyname Wed 14-Aug-13 22:35:13

I mean that would be rubbish. It's a silly choice I think. What's up with Anabelle?

212VIP Wed 14-Aug-13 22:35:52

But say it out loud?
Confusion aside it sounds very pretty?

It looks like a misspelling and sounds like someone asking if they're pretty (Am I Bell?).

FluffedUpFerretOnSteroids Wed 14-Aug-13 22:38:18

I love unusual names my name is and I love that no one else i know has the same name, i think its a good name smile

BehindLockNumberNine Wed 14-Aug-13 22:38:31

Nope, sorry, does not sound pretty. Not in any way, shape or form.

Stick with Annabel, Belle for short...

Soo good I said it twice!! (sorry)

Slainte Wed 14-Aug-13 22:39:26

What everlong said.

212VIP Wed 14-Aug-13 22:40:34

Down south (Berkshire) accent.
General consensus not good sad

IHeartKingThistle Wed 14-Aug-13 22:44:03

I know an Ama and I love the name. But the family are Ghanaian and it's a traditional name there for a girl born on a certain day of the week.

Amabel....hmmm. Don't think so, sorry.

LatinForTelly Wed 14-Aug-13 22:44:18

I knew an Amabel who would now be about 40. I think it's pretty. Once we were corrected the first time, we never forgot it grin.

FluffedUpFerretOnSteroids Wed 14-Aug-13 22:45:14

I think its really pretty I always think an unusual name is better smile go with what you prefer

Kikibee Wed 14-Aug-13 22:48:07

There is a lady amabel Lindsay who lives just outside hungerford, I think it is a pretty name but I guess i am in the minority
