Comments on the name Gabriela
01/14/2024 00:00:00

My name is Gabriela and most people call me Gaby. I spell "Gaby" with 1 "B", but most people think It's two "B's" It REALLY annoys me when people spell my name with two B's, because It's spelled with one B. My parents had thought about naming me Olivia, and I honestly think I look like one. Most people also say I look like a Gabriela or an Olivia, either which. I do like the name Ela though, because It's finally something other than Gaby or Gabriela.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

I have yet to meet another Gabriela (with one L) in person which makes my name'seem more rare than it actually is. My sister's name is Priscila so we have gotten countless compliments over the years. My mom has told me that the main reason why she loved the name Gabriela was because in the bible, Gabriel was the angel that brought the good news to Mary about her'soon-to-be baby boy (Jesus). I love my name and the'story behind it!

01/14/2024 00:00:00

Gabriela is my name too, and I can't count how many times people have added extra L's, or forgotten'the A at the end, or mispronounced it as "Gabe-riela" or "Grabiela" -- and no, you can never find it on anything EVER. Still, I always get compliments on how beautiful and original it is. And remember -- ONE L is better. You'll always be "one L of a girl." ;)

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My name is Gabriela. But if I wright it I put gabriella with 2 l's. My nickname is Gaby in school. Some of my teache's still call me Gabriella. I don't mind but I would want people to call me Bri or Ella.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My name is Gaberiel. I spell it different from everyone. Gaberiel do stand for talking to much but I don't care because my name fit me and I do talk alot. My mom and my friends sometimes call me gabby , but it doesn't matter to me. Yes, some people spell my name wrong and they be calling me gabriel and that's a boy name. But I'm glad that my mother name me that. I also think think that gaberiel stand for good personality and angel. That's me all the way.

01/11/2024 08:31:40

My name is Gabriela. Most of the time when I was growing up, I would tell people my name was Gabby. I always got the joke "Gabby❤️ Like Gabby Hayes❤️" from the old people. Sadly, I have adopted this same stale joke, but I get laughs. I love my name, though. It'suits me. But I don't really talk that much.

12/26/2023 22:31:18

I like my name very much although like someone before me has written I would like to be the only Gabriela I know and that is not the case. I live in Argentina and it is not the most common name but it Isn't very uncommon either. I would also like it better if people would just call me Gabriela but they always seem to need to shorten it to Gaby or soemthing like that.

I loooooooove my name. I write my name with only one "l" because I'm Hispanic and that's the way people usually write it the most! My nickname in school is Gaby or Gabby or Gabi or how ever anyone wants to spell it :) but it could be nice if people called me stuff like Ella, Bri, Bella because those are beautiful names too or nicknames :)

10/29/2023 23:32:44

It's mine name, and yes people miss spell it a lot, but I don't really mind. People also call me "Gabby" which irritates me, "Ella" would be a more suitable nick name.

10/16/2023 20:12:10

My name is Gabriela and while I think its a gorgeous name I hate the fact that its exactly the'same as my mother's. There is nothing unique to me about it cause its like a hand me down and I don't even have a middle name. I'd enjoy my name more if there wasn't another Gabriela in every one of my classes - it gets kind of annoying and I have numerous nicknames; gaby, gabs, gabbers, etc. And when people can't say my name they just say Gabrielle.

10/07/2023 12:50:50

Its not a comon name in US...its more comon in Italy or South America, it really sounds forein..but I love my name, It'sounds good...

10/07/2023 09:01:36

my name is Gabriela teache's all ways pronounced my name wrong and they used to call me Gabriel

09/20/2023 19:06:04

People mispronounce it wrong all the time:gabe-briela or gabrella.Some people completely miss the A at the end and call me Gabriel. It's pronounced Gab-bri-ella, every Gabriella or Gabriela i've met pronounces it that way. I go by gabby because It's just easier for othe's. I really like my name though, i get compliments often:)

09/06/2023 15:39:34

i love my name gabriela. i think is a very pretty name most pple call me by my nick name which is gaby. i love both.. and i also know a few gabrielas..

09/03/2023 21:49:42

Everybody thinks that people named Gabriela talk a lot, and even'though I love talking I don't think it has anything to do with it. A lot of people pronounce my name Gabrielle and I'm always like,"no It's Gabriela." But It's ok. I love that there's so many different ways people can say my name like: Gab, Gaby, Gabby, Gabriela...I love my name!!! It'sounds so cute!!!

08/31/2023 07:43:08


08/15/2023 02:36:36

This is my second name, The'spelling is much more inter'sting, I don't really like the'spelling Katherine... It'seems strange seeing as people pronounce that as kath-rin, not kath-er-rin, therefore it looks better'spelt phonetically :)

08/07/2023 07:59:26

i love my name gabriella its alsome and to all the gabriella`s in the world lets just say we rock <3

07/28/2023 23:45:12

I named my daughter Gabriela. I think It's a sophisticated but friendly name. We pronounce it with the'short "a" sound, like "gabby." People are always mispronouncing it and always spelling it with two "l's" instead of the "one l" spelling which I think looks much better. I love this name!

07/16/2023 16:23:42

My name is Gabriela..i like my name not many people have it... the only thing i do not like about my name is i can never find It'spelled right on anything... But i do love my name.. i and very loud and outgoing to i think it fits me well!

07/15/2023 21:52:48

I love my name Gabriela but some times people mistake it as a boy you know the name Gabriel its for a boy but still i love my name gabby or gabriela they call me its a sexy name

07/06/2023 23:38:06

This is my name and It's spelled as "Nicholle". I love the'spelling. I haven't met anyone else who spells it that way.

06/27/2023 20:41:16

My name is Gabriela and I am half on it. I like it but I also do not like it because I always have to tell people "Gabriela with 1 L". I am Mexican so Gabriella would be pronounced as "Gabrieya" due to the 2 L's sounding like a y in Spanish. But yeah people call me Gabby now which soon I will start telling people to call me Gabriela because Gabby sounds a bit childish. Also, the more I say it, the more my name'sounds weird so yeah again, It's alright.

06/23/2023 07:56:56

I know quite a few people called 'Gabriella' but only me who spells it 'Gabriela'. I think it is better'spelt my way and makes it more original :)

06/17/2023 07:03:42

my name is Gabriella, with two Ls, which is the Italian way of spelling, one L is Spanish, and without the a (Gabrielle) is French. I also never liked people calling me gabby (everyone does)...the name could have much prettier nicknames like bri or ella, but i guess gabby's just the first thing people think of! but I LOVE my name anyway!!

06/13/2023 10:11:34

i LOVE LOVE LOVE my name Gabriella (2 L's) but everyone calls me Gabi and i hate it, It's such an ugly name and doesn't do the full name jstice. when i leave school I'm going to introduce myself as Gabriella and am not accepting nicknames! lol HOORAY TO ALL THE GABRIELLA'S IN THE WORLD! WE ROCK

05/24/2023 20:15:52

My name is Gabriela and SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many people spell it wrong. they spell it gabriella or gabby, when it is gabriela or gaby. I especially hate when someone calls me Gabrielle. I love my name though, and I think it is perfect and uniquely common-y'know❤️

05/21/2023 20:50:58

I like my name but ther's alaways complications with It'some teache's say "Gabby (nickname) stop gabbin" I hate that and all the gabbys in my school are all like bad and stuff so every time someone will say "ohh she just like the other gabby's in our school"!

05/20/2023 14:52:22

My name is Gabriela, the one 'L' is the'spanish way of spelling it because if it had two it wouldn't sound right in Spanish, or Italian. I love my name, It's awesome!

05/18/2023 15:33:24

I'm gabriella, it is the moste christine name ever made up, meaning "heroine of god." yay. my nickname is gabby or gabe.

04/20/2023 21:36:16

People often spell and say it wrong because in the US there are so many ways to say it. It is a really beautiful, exotic and feminine name and not too many people have it.

04/11/2023 12:11:30

Wonderful name! It weighs a lot since it was borne by characters of great importance throughout history. And besides, It'sounds clean and open, as in with broad horizons, endless perhaps. I love it. It's not my name but it is my choice of name for when I'll have a little girl.

04/03/2023 08:45:20

Constantly mis-pronounced, ridiculed, and mis-spelled..... Nickname Gabby is atrocious....substitute for Ella if you must!!! I strongly dislike my name.

03/16/2023 18:26:14

03/06/2023 00:59:26

I have the'same issue in the U.S, everytime I introduce myself people automatically convert my name to Gabrielle even'though I say it Gabriela. In Latin America, however, I'm one of billions of Gabrielas, so I hate that my name is so common.

03/04/2023 13:08:10

02/17/2023 11:21:32

02/07/2023 14:11:26

my name is gabriela and i love my name is very unique...but i hate when people dont spell it right...they always spell it wrong like Gabriella with 2 LL's or Gabriell...

01/02/2023 00:03:02

My name is Gabriela. One thing that I don't really like about my name is that people always refer to me as :gabby gabby". Yeah, I love to talk:-) However, I think that most people with this name are very sociable, honest, and brave. Therefore, you can call me "Gabby gabby", still I love my name very much.

12/04/2022 15:06:36

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.(:

12/03/2022 10:53:48

11/12/2022 19:24:00

My names is also Gabriela...and I can relate to all the Gaby ladies here, its usually misspronounced, misspelled, but i think its just because its not a familiar name, wich makes It'somewhat hurray for the gabys...! I do love my name.

11/05/2022 06:04:14

02/10/2022 20:35:06

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...

01/25/2022 03:48:54

I do have a lot of people misspell my name I spell it Gabriela and people always spell it Gabriella or Gabrielle. During my childhood I never new any one else with my name which made me feel a little rare, but now a days I run across a lot of little Gabrielas, seems as it is more popular now than before.

09/17/2021 21:03:00

My name is Gabriela and just because Gabby is in the dictionary and means talk alot doesnt mean we do........ it makes us special people!!!

08/18/2021 01:43:48

I like my name, but It's not hot or cute.It'sounds so forein.

08/17/2021 00:06:36

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

08/11/2021 07:46:30

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.
