Claribel, your thoughts on the name?

I’m 18 weeks pregnant with my second, and it’s a girl. 🥰
My first daughter name is Roselina.
Now, for this one I’ve liked Claribel, what are your thoughts? Or any suggests are welcome.

Annie and Clarabel the carriages from Thomas!

Sounds like a brand name, maybe like a dishwasher tablet
Clarabel is pretty tho ☺️
CouncilHousedAndViolentBaby · 24/11/2021 22:20
Christabel is lovely too

I'm thinking air fresheners, sorry.
Figgygal · 24/11/2021 22:25
I’d think you’d it wrong then I’d think of Thomas or cows
Either way there’s better names out there
SantiagoSky · 24/11/2021 22:28
I like Clara, Clarissa, or Claire better.
BobbieT1999 · 24/11/2021 22:43
I actually like Claribel more the longer this thread goes on
Kite22 · 24/11/2021 22:51
Thomas is dying out so I wouldn't worry about the Clarabel / Annie thing.
Not with the hundreds of U5s I work with every year

Sister for Dobbin
MuscariMuguet · 24/11/2021 23:01
I like it. I don't have the associations others have mentioned.
foxgoosefinch · 24/11/2021 23:01
I'd definitely go for Christabel instead (lovely name!), or something similar like Mirabelle, Marielle, Mariana. Leonie, which a pp suggested, also goes beautifully with your other DD's name.
I met a little girl toddler over the summer called Amadea - that struck me as a really lovely, unusual name!

Isn't clarabel the name of the cow in Mickey Mouse clubhouse
RedRobin100 · 25/11/2021 07:07
Reminds me of cheese?
Tillymintpolo · 25/11/2021 07:08
Christabel was a suffragette, much better choice
Fadette · 25/11/2021 07:11
Makes me think of Babybel even though names like Annabel etc. don't.
UsernameIsHarderThanBabyName · 25/11/2021 11:03
I’m not keen sorry but I do love the suggestion of Christabel.
Scirocco · 25/11/2021 11:04
I prefer Clara or Christabel; Claribel/Clarabel has too strong an association with children's TV and farmyard animals for me, sorry.
isthismylifenow · 25/11/2021 11:07
Imo it is a nickname version of Claire?Clare
I know a Clare and her family all call her Clarabelle.
PurplePeaks · 25/11/2021 11:07
Oh gosh, I thought cow's name as well
TuftyMarmoset · 25/11/2021 11:17
Claribel sounds like a contraceptive pill
Clarabelle sounds like a cow
Just use Clara!
LittleGwyneth · 26/11/2021 11:12
What about Meribel, Marial or Christobel?
stealthninjamum · 26/11/2021 11:15
My immediate thought was moo as well.
chipshopElvis · 26/11/2021 11:22
Annie and Claribel here too OP
Unknown20199 · 27/11/2021 00:26
Thank you all for your opinions.
And I’ve decided Claribel it won’t be 😂.
I’ll be naming her Arlina.
