My names actually Gabriella, two L's. I think my name is beautiful. When my mom named me she didnt want people to call me gabby because she just loved the name as is. Although my friends all call me Gabby. My family is italian so they call me Bella for short because it means beautful. I love both nicknames. I dont think Gabby sounds tacky or ugly. If you think a girl with the nickname Gabby sounds like they talk alot, take me for example. I am really shy. People often'think Gabriella sounds like a really girly, loud, sn'tty name, but i am none of those. aha. I also get called many other nicknames such as gab,gabs, bri, brielle, briella, ella , and of course the most common gabby and bella. I recomend this name to many woman who are expecting a girl and are thinking of a name. I have got many compliments on my name and i love it myself.(:

My name is Gabriela and when I was younger I hated it and people called me Gabi but as I got older I prefered Gabriela as I thought Gabi sounded childish. People always mispell my name, i don't think I know anyone other than close friends or familly that have spelt it correctly on their first try! People often call me Gabe-riela or Gabrielle and it ticks me off... I never met anyone called Gabriela with 1 L untill i was 14 and one of my friends shared that name which was nice and since then I have met only one other person called Gabriela with 1 L. My name is spelt with one L as I am half Spanish and in Spain Gabriella is pronounced Gabrieya. The two other Gabrielas I have met are also Spanish or half Spanish. I love my name and I am not to keen on any of the nicknames but in school people always called me gabby or gab or ella or bri-bri. Many people still can't spell my name and I think the worst spelling I have come accross spelt by one of my friends is Garibla...

1/25/2022 3:48:54 AM

Little kids always make the comment that my name is the'same as the girl in High School Musical... so annoying.

8/11/2021 7:46:30 AM

I named my daughter Gabriela Hope. The one l spelling looked more exotic,and that's why my husband and I chose to spell it with one l. I hate when people mispronounce her name as "Gabe-riela." I also don't like the nickname Gabi, but we live with it. I think I'm going to ask people to shorten her name to Bri if they want a nickname, but we will always call her Gabriela. It's a beautiful name, like music.

8/4/2021 6:23:42 PM
