My name is Gabriel. Honestly, it wasn't the best name growing up with; but it is a great unique name when you get older.

My 10 year old son's name is Gabriel and we call him "Gabe" for short. He loves it, we love it and no one ever forgets his name. Now we just need to find something as perfect for his baby brother

I love the name Gabriel. Its such a wonderful name for a boy. I dont know what I would give as a middle name yet, but I know I will have a son with that name. It's just so perfect.

9/24/2022 5:44:16 AM

I think this is a great name.. very strong.

My husband's name is Gabriel (goes by Gabe) and we named our first son Zen Gabriel. It's a name i've always loved. His name wasn't chosen for religious reasons, but because they thought it was a beautiful sounding name.

An awful, masculine name for a girl. Gabriel is definitely a boys name. You want a girl name, then go with Gabrielle, It's not super girly and feminine.

I named my 10 month old Gabriel and he looks just like a Gabriel (Gabe) for short. It is a very masculine name and it fits him perfectly. I also agree that'some adults do try to say his name wrong, as if they do not notice he has on all blue or etc. With basketballs, footballs, etc on it. My remedy for that is to say that adults name just as wrong

My husband and i chose to name our son Kenneth Gabriel. I love the name and i am sure he will be called "Gabe" in the future. I like the name. However It'seems that lately in our local town the name has gained much popularity and there were at least 12 babies in the last two months with Gabriel as their first name. I love the meaning "God's Stren'th."

6/21/2022 9:26:24 PM

Im a girl and I love my name! I like that it is masculine! And my parents aren't dumb!

6/6/2022 11:46:48 AM

if i had a kid, i'd name him "gabriel". how gorgeous. the'sound and feel of the name is perfect. "gabe" as a nickname is pretty adorable, too, I'must say.

5/31/2022 7:26:42 PM

My moms last name is Gabriel and she is adopted. It is her biological last name. She keeps in hopes her family will find her. It has always been pronounced correctly. We never had a problem. I'married and took my husbands last name and no one can pronounce it right. I'miss Gabriel.

My son's name is Gabriel Micheal and I love his name!

My son's name is Gabriel Erik- he loves His name- when in school he was called Gab- I love it

3/25/2022 5:57:36 PM

We are going to name our first-born son Malachi. It is a strong and beautiful name, although I do worry that people will pronounce it wrong (the "chi" part). I LOVE the meaning.

3/22/2022 5:40:30 PM

I am three months pregnant and if I have another little boy I plan to name him Gabriel. I think it is beautiful to say the least.

3/14/2022 6:32:42 AM

I know someone from my school called Gabriel, but he does not like it. Most just call him Gabby

2/15/2022 2:02:42 PM

My beautiful son is named Gabriel. Whenever we go to the pediatrician, whatever nurse it is calls him "Gabrielle". Every time. Its starting to grate.

2/14/2022 4:05:06 PM

This is my husband's name, and the name 'fits' him. He is calm, smart, optimistic, funny, caring, honest, a hard worker, loyal and very loving. I personally think that a name is a lot of who we are as we grow up. If you are thinking about naming your child Gabriel...good choice! It's just a shame my husband isn't into 'juniors' and he refused to allow our first born son be named after him!!!

1/8/2022 5:27:00 PM

If I have a boy his name will be Gabriel, I love the name I love how It'speaks to me and I don't know any one with the name'so it works out great!

1/4/2022 9:57:00 PM

This is my first new born's name and everyone from my family and at work love the name. It means "Protector of Mankind" in greek. I wanted my son to be part of the next generation X. Hence, Xander was born July 1, 2018.

12/24/2021 12:28:12 AM

i think the name is a nice boy name, but for this day and age it is not heard much and might be perceived when'the child is older as a "girly boy name, not a masculine type of name.

11/22/2021 2:36:54 AM

The love of my life was born on 08-08-08 I named him Kaiden'the fighter). There are a lot of "Ks" in my family and I also fell in awe with the name being gthat I tried for years to conceive and when I could have really cared less it came to be for me. I knew I would have to fight to have a happy, healthy, full term pregnancy and my little one would have to fight also. By the grace of God - we are both survivors and fighters for life!

We named our son Gage 10+ years after'seeing Pet Cemetery. We found it to be Old French and means Promise and Vision, a perfect match for who he is. He is in a Prep school that runs prek thru 12th and is the only Gage there. He is very popular, kind, a leader and very strong. He excels academically and athleticaly and is working on his 2nd true mudakwan tae kwon do black belt! Gage is the name of quiet, strong leaders!

My son's name is Gabriel. He is 6 months old. Most people pronounce is Gabrielle (for a girl) It can be tough as he has a twin sister, Jordan, also a boys name. They are always being confused. Not too many people can spell it correctly either. Then'tend to spell it like Gabrielle. Mostly I get comments like, "wow, what Bioblical names you have chosen." I even once got "he has large shoes to fill." A few people told me that it was actually a girls name. I am constantly correcting people. I absolutely love the name, as do most people. You don't hear it that often and that is what I love the most about it.

10/7/2021 7:42:00 AM

I love Gabriel , I want to name my future son either Levi Gabriel or Gabriel something. Go Gabriel , I am a Christian and I pray that all my children will grow to be believers as well.

9/26/2021 3:30:00 PM

My son is called Gabriel, he is 2 and often called Gabe. I am constantly told by people that they think it is a great name. It certainly suits him, tall, blond and boisterous but very, very loving.

9/20/2021 6:35:24 PM

I really like the name Gabriel, but when it is shortened to Gab It'sounds so ugly

8/7/2021 4:02:24 AM

My last name is Gabriel and my Finance want to name our son that but often my name gets Pronounced as Gabrielle and I don't want that for my son

8/6/2021 3:20:06 AM

We are naming our 1st baby Kaylyn, due next week! We I'mediately fell in love with the name and it was the only girl name my husband and I both liked.
