Gabrielle is the French feminine form of the masculine name Gabriel, a biblical name from the Hebrew word meaning "man of God." Gabriel was one of the archangels who served as a messenger from God. He first appears in the Old Testament in Daniel 8:16 when he helps Daniel interpret visions for him. However, the key importance of Gabriel occurs in the New Testament (Gospel according to Luke) when he appears before Zechariah to herald the coming of John the Baptist, and Mary to herald the coming of Jesus. The French feminine version, Gabrielle, has been in use for centuries, but became popular in the United States in the second half of the 20th century (perhaps due to the influence of Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel).
Americans didn't start using the name Gabrielle until 1957, but the name made a slow and patient rise to the top of the charts, landing on the Top 100 list in 1990. The name reached the peak of its popularity in the 1990s and has dropped from a few notches. The Italian version (Gabriella) is currently more popular than the French Gabrielle in America. It all boils down to a difference in preference between a four-syllable and a three-syllable name. In addition, some parents prefer the suffix "-Ella" to "-elle" believing that it sounds more feminine. However, Gabrielle has a certain French flair that gives her some added sophistication.
Coco Chanel (Gabrielle born in Saumus, France) is one of the most influential fashion designers ever. Famous for her interpretation of the â€œlittle black dressâ€ (think Audrey Hepburn in â€™ €œBreakfast at Tiffanyâ€™sâ€) and elegant outfits famously worn by Jackie Kennedy in the 1960â€™s, Coco revolutionized the world of fashion of woman. As she once said: â€œLuxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.â€ She knew how to dress a woman for style, class, simplicity and comfort. Her early years, however, were anything but glamorous. After his mother's death, Chanel was put in an orphanage by his father who worked as a street vendor. She was raised by nuns who taught Sewa a skill that would lead to her life's work. Given her flirtatious beauty, which attracted a couple of wealthy men who were instrumental in getting his business out of the land of hats in Paris (starting with hat sales). It was purely by chance that she entered the clothing design world when people started asking her about the dresses that she wore herself.

Gabby is a good name, my friends name is gabby and she is awesome.
my name is gabrielle some people call me elle i like the name gabrielle a did not no that loads of people were called gabrielle.
I love the name Gabrielle, it is my daughter's name. We chose to pronounce her name with a long "A" sound, because of the'stren'th it reveals and it avoids the nickname Gaby. We call her Gabri,Bri,Brielle a lot as nicknames.
Not that keen on Gabrielle. Too long and sounds weird. The'shortened version, Gabby is horrible - also reminds me of a mouth!
my name is jack n i rok ur socks hell ya i hav a frriend name gabby i call her gabasaurus rex isnt that g pce out dawg
my name is gabrielle. Everyone calls me gabby though becausewhen I was in pre-school no one could pronounce gabrielle so gabby just stuck. I luv the nickname elley. I hate how every one pronounces it as Gabriel even'though its spelled totaly different.
My name is Gabrielle. People often used to pronounce it incorrectly, but It's becoming a bit more popular and I don't have as many problems. I love the name, because i've never come across anyone with the'same name! Friends shorten it to Gabbie and Gab so it doesn't have to be too formal.
I feel like my name is tacky because the nickname for it darlene is such pretty name prettier than mines
My name is Gabrielle but I hate Gabbie, so my brothe's call me Elle o Ellie, vary rare times, they put it all together and call me Gabriellie. I like it, sounds sweet ^^
I would so name a girl Gabrielle. And then her nickname could be Gabi. It's such a unique and girly name at the'same time.
my name is gabrielle.and i lovee it, though sometimes i dont. when i was younger, my mom always made sure everyone called me gabrielle, because she didnt want me to be called gabby. when i started going to school, no matter what she'said people still called me gabby. therefore my mom said if i am going to be called gabby it must be spelled gabi. if anyone was to name there daughter gabrielle, i would strongly reccomend it because its very pretty, there are many nicknames, and as people have stated below, it means that you follow God and you are normally intelligent, such as i am.
It is a beatuiful name I'm named it! I didn't know it ment that!
My name is Gabrielle and my family uses my full name. My friends all call me gabby but honestly If i was to go with a nickname I would go with Brie. But It's so hard to shake Gabby... I just gave up a few years ago because no one could say it right and they always went with gabby.
My name is Gabrielle, and i was born in the uk in 2010, i was suprised to see that alot of people were named it in 2010, as thats when i was born, however alot were born in the U.S.A, I didnt used to like the name, but now i think its nice&alot; of other people do too, ther's me and one other ganrielle in my school of 1100, and ive never come across a gabrielle before, i get called the angel gabrielle haha, i get called gabby, or gabs, or gobby as im gobbby, people tent to speell&say; it wrong though, its a catholic name xx
My name is Gabrielle, I love my name, and its meaning. So many people call me Gabriel, and it drives me insane. Gabriel is a boy. I do not look like a boy. When I was little my family called me Brie, when kids at school found out Brie was the name of a che'se, guess what my nickname was...yep, Che'se. So I insisted everyone had to call me Gabrielle, then everyone started calling me Gabby, It'stuck, and now I can't shake it! I would advise parents who are going to name their daughters Gabrielle not to call her Gabby unless that's what they want to call her forever. It's also really irritating because a lot of people think they are hilarious when'they ask me if I talk alot. But Gabrielle is beautiful! Elle is cute for a nickname too!
call your kid gabrielle if it is a girl beacuse it is really cool everyone who thinks thumbs down need a new brain dont they so call them gabrielle. i am called gabrielle i really like It'so your kids will love it like i do
My younger'sisters name is Gabrielle. I guess we pronounce it a french way like "Gah-bre-elle" with a stress more on the "elle". My sister hates that people often pronounce it wrong. After years of explaining to people that its more like a G-ah sound, she'started going by Gub.
i have a friend and they just call her gabby beecause in pre school her friend couldnt say it but the teache's could and her mom and dad call her that'so it just stuck.
My name is Gabrielle and I love it! Not a lot of people have my name and even'though it is mispronounced often I still love it! It's also cool because you don't get tired of hearing it being repeated many times its such a nice name!
My name is Gabrielle. I like it and I don't like. I'm almost NEVER called it, I'm either called Gaby, Gabbsters, Gaby Gut (my friend's nickname for me), and Gab/Gabs. Also It's common, and I always get the question "are you Gabrielle or Gabriella?" i always answer "whatever floats your boat" because I'm Spanish and It's Gabriella in Spanish. Also sometimes it is pronounced Gabriel. (this is really long :) Anyway, it is a good name, but think about it before naming your child it because they will most likely never be called by it.
Yes. My name is Gabrielle. Yes I do have some hard times with the name but I think Im getting over it. Jessily!! For your question about a middle name that does good with Gabrielle, try Alexis. Its mine!
my name is Gabrielle some people call me elle i like being called Gabrielle beacuse it maks you feel like you are some one not nothing. at school some people call me Gabby Goo or gobby at home and some people call me other names that bein with a G and also the name is really fun!
My name is gabriella and i love It'so much! my name is very different in my grade, not one single person has the'same name as me. but i LOVE my name, it is vevry unique, i would name my child gabriella... but then'tht would seem rele akward so I'mite just go with breanna or brittany.
Wow i can't belive how many Kaliyah's there is, i also thought we made it up like most of you we spell it Aliyah with a K in front 'Kaliyah'. Our princess is now 2 1/2 and i've never known the meaning so thought i'd look around and found this. People do sometimes spell it wrong and say it wrong but we correct them, haven't come across any Kaliyah's as yet. P.S she is very smart for her age and she's a little toughy lol. From us in the'south East of England
i LOVE THE NAME GABRIELLA MY 2 YR. OLD COUSINS NAME IS THAT SO I ABSOLUTELY LOVE It'she'sO ADORABLE SHE HAS A LOT OF CURLS JUST I CANT EXPLAIN It'sHES SO CUTE "GOD BLESS HER"
My name is Gabrielle it is a great name if you are planning on calling your baby Gabrielle go a head. Its lovley. you have loads of nice nicknames my nicknammes are Elle. Gabby. xxx
I have two friends named Gabrielle, and when one shortens it, It'sounds like Gabby, but the other'shortens it, it is simply a shorter version of the long name, sorta like Gah-by
I'm 38 years old and I pray each day to be blessed with a little Gabrielle, that name is a strong name for any one to have,I'd be honored to give it to a child.
i just had a baby girl two weeks ago which i named gabrielle. i love that name. it is such a strong name. for some people it is so hard to pronaunced, they think it is a boy name. but i do not really care what people think. i love that name
Hi, My name is Gabrielle to. I love my name but I also love my nick name to. Gabby, is what my friends call me. I also love my name Gabrielle. I'm in 2nd grade but maybe I will have a new nickname as I get older. I hate when my Aunt Ruthie Call's me "Gabriel". I like to say, "Hey I'm not a boy!" I thought by her age she would know how to pronounce it by now but, I Guess Not!
I'm Gabrielle but have always been called Gaby which I really hate. I tend to use 'Gabs' on internet forums as I think It's quite friendly. I'm getting more used to my name now that It's becoming a bit more popular but It's taken more than 50 years to get used to it.
Like many of the posters, my name is also Gabrielle. The only thing that continues to baffle me throughout my 15 years of being identified by this name is the endless mispronunciation. Being of French decent, my parents chose the pronunciation, "Gau-bree-ell" (think: Aubree)and no matter how many times I correct people, or smile through their butchering, they can never'seem to get past the "a" sound of the word "apple" (gAbrielle). Oh well. Pretty name. More common than I would like to think.
I love this name and get lots of complements for it, but people constantly mangle this name (my daughter's), which I thought was well-known enough to be familiar. She is constantly called Gabriel (pronounced like the male version) or Gabriella... or, most of the time, Gabriel-a. (As in boy's name Gabriel, followed by "la"). Oh, and they like to use the nickname Gabbie, which we don't like.
If our baby is a girl, we are naming her Gabrielle with Brielle or Bree as a nickname.
My name is Gabrielle, and when I have a substitute, they pronounce it Gabriel. Which I think is how you pronounce it for a boy. And I'm a girl. So i don't know yet. I defendently don't like when'they call me Gabriel
Joanna means "Gift of God" in french. Gabrielle means "Woman of God" in french. I hope this helps you, Joanna!
I Have the name Gabrielle It's an ok name but i'd like a nickname instead of Gabby or Belle
My name is Gabrielle- I love telling people my name because I think it is really pretty. Most people call me Gabs, although I'm trying to get my friends to call me Brie or Gabrielle.
That is so weird, my name is Gabrielle Renee. How weird. Haha.
HIGHLY BEAUTIMOUS! Classy and cute at the'same time.

My name is gabrielle di dont really like it i like the meaning but idk i just dont like it and everyone spells it wrong and they call me gabriel and gabbie i really want a better nickname people also call me gabster which i like cuz its different but i want to go with elle elli or bri but i dont meet very many people with my name'so i like that
I love the name. We gave it to our daughter. She gets called Gabi for short though. She is only a toddler'so Gabi is cute but as an adult Gabrielle sounds so pretty. Atleast i think so.... if she doesn't well then perhaps she will go by Gab or Bree or Elle. I really get annoyed when someone calls her Gabriel. Clearly she is not a boy.
my daughters name is Gabrielle AlexisRose. I always loved the name Gabrielle. we call her Gabi
Can a boy be named a girl name??? Like Gabrielle or Danielle or something like it....
My daughter was born 2/12/03 and her names is Gabrielle. We rarely find that people mispronounce her name. Unfortunately, there is a boom of little girls with this name'so It's definitely not unique.
My name is Gabrielle and I love it! Most people call me Gabi tho sometimes Gab, Gabs, Gabbers, but that's what i love about the name that there are are so many different choices nd ways of spelling of it. The only thing that I think is bad about it, is that its becoming a LOT more common.
my name is Gabrielle and its such a cool name because it has soooo many nicknames.
My perfect baby girl is named Gabrielle and she fits it and rocks it! :)
my name is also gabrielle I live in the netherlands but here they pronounce my name right but they spell it wrong sometimes people call me also gabriella cause they think thats my name
Well Hellooo Theree =) My Names Hannah.. I Love My Name.. Tiz Sexyyyyy ;) x
My names Gabriella , Its an alright name. but im bored of being called Gabie , i need a new nickname. but if you was going to call your kids it its a fantastic name!.
I named my daughter Gabrielle Alexandrina. Everyone is so right about people misprouncing this name. I hear people say "Gabriel" (boy verision) and "Gabriella"..which is ok but if I wanted people to call her Gabriella, I would have named her Gabriella. I used to hate the name Gaby, but I call her that now and think its very cute for a little baby. She is 11 months. The name Gabrielle is so classy and unique...I'm so glad I chose this name. I hope it doesn't give her a hard time when hardly anyone gets the name right at first.
My name's Gabrielle but I go by Gabbi... bus all ya'll that don't like it! Especially the chick that'said "This is not my name - but I think It's quite nice. I just don't like the nicknames that go with this name (e.g Gabby...)" if It's not your name you don't need an opinion get a life. It's a sweet name.
I have to say thumbs up because It's my name, though be warned that everyone will want to call your child Gabby. It happened to me though my parents resisted. Also, It's easier to call me Gabby because people mispronounce my name - It's Gaah-brielle. Aah like "otter" not "gather." So frustrating! It's such a formal pronounciation that It's just easier to go with Gabby. Sigh.
My name is Gabrielle. My mom was told since the day I was born to name me Gabriella, but didn't. MY aunt has a son named Gabriel. I'm constantly called Gabby even if I never'said I wanted to be called that, so I have "changed" it numerous times to make it more unique, i've spelt 'Gabby' as Gabby, Gabbi, and Gabi. Finally sticking to Gabi. I am always being called Gabriel or Gabriella, and it is quite annoying. I don't think I'd suggest the name for anyone, It's unique in itself but no one ever really appreciates it because they are always calling you Gabby, that's if they pronounce it right to begin with lol.
My name is Gabrielle, and I absolutely love my name,it is so fun just to say it. I also go by Gabby, Gab, Gabs, Gabmaster, Gabmaster flash, Gabbers, and the list goes on. I love how many different nicknames people come up with, but being called Gabrielle is the best. I get extremely annoyed whenever'some one mispronounces it and calls me 'Gabriel', It's like they can't read or something, it makes me mad. But I still love my name!!
Gabrielle is a cool name cause theur are loads of nick names. My favauroite nick name is gab cause it is cool.
I just had a baby girl Oct the 17th at 6:35 in the morning. Gabriell is a very intelligent,independent name that is very inspiring to me and my family. God is a very important part in my life and family. The meaning of her name is "God is my almighty". My daughter came out very smart and is getting smarter and advanced as the days go. So if your looking for a name for your daughter or someone else I suggest that gabriell is the way to go.
I am delighted and grateful my dear late parents chose to name me Gabrielle back in 1971 when I was born. It's a name favoured by Catholics and there were two other Gabrielle's at my school. It's a beautiful name despite some people struggling to pronounce it correctly. It's not too common which is nice although in recent years It'seems to be gaining in popularity here in New Zealand.As a wee girl I couldn't pronounce my own name properly and would say "Gubbles" which became my nick name. Once I reached my teenage years it was shortened to Gubs and is still used by my husband, family and close friends. Some people call me Gabby as well.
It's too close to the'spelling of the boy's name Gabriel.
My name is Gabrielle and i love the name, everyone one usually calls me gabbie becuase they don't want to pronounce my name wrong, i think its a very stronge name. and could be used for boy and girl.
It's my nameee i love it! It's cute and so female!
Hi, my daughter's name is Gabrielle and everyone insists on calling her Gabriell"a"! Even'though she is only going to be 5 on New Year's Eve, she gets quite annoyed by this! She is always correcting everybody. Lots of people try to nickname her Gab or Gabby but she always tells them that her name is "Gabrielle"! I don't care for the nicknames but I know they might happen either way and we will grow to love them as we love her!
There is nothing good about this except that It's short.
i have a very nice friend named Gabrielle and we never call her by her nickname which is gabi thats what me and gabi have in comment my name is Sierra but everyone calls me cece so lol.
My name is Gabrielle. I like it but wish it could just be a little more exotic, so I sometimes spell it with a Y instead of an I, so it reads Gabryelle. The problem with the name Gabrielle is that people always assume you want to be called Gabby. Most of my friends call me Gab or Gabs, and my boyfriend either calls me Gabs or Gabrielle, which I honestly prefer anyway.
My name is Gabrielle, but no one calls me that. Everyone calls me Gaby or Gabs or even Gabtser. I like my name Gaby because its short and fun.
My names Gabrielle and I love it. My friends mostly call me Gabbi. I love how there is an angel named Gabriel in the bible and that's also why I love this name.
Wow! I'm a London Jacalyn and have never come across anyone else with the'same name! I think I'may be a bit of a 'latecomer', born in 1977! My parents spotted the'spelling in a names book and preferred it to the more traditional French spelling - I always assumed the'spelling was an AmericanI'm; since the advent of the internet regular 'googling' of the name has mostly proved me right! Like many of the above, I neglected the full spelling as a child - too formal and the'spelling issues drove me mad! That'said, i've always been a JackY, and that'seems to confuse everyone just as much! Have started to grow into the full name as I get older... it is good to be different!
My name is Gabrielle, Its amazing ive never known so many nicknames for Gabrielle. So if your having a baby girl and your thinking of calling it Gabrielle then go ahead. And i would like to thank you if my comment made you want to name your baby Gabrielle. x Thanks for reading anyway x
My name is Gabrielle. It's pretty common, actually.
My name is Gabrielle and when I was younger I really didn't like it, so I had always went by Gabby. I could never really find a great spelling so I changed it everyday. I went by Gabby, Gaby, Gabi, Gabbi, Gabii, ect. But, this year I had a teacher who always called me Gabrielle. It was strange at first becuase I had never been called by my full name. But now as the year has now ended, I really do like the name Gabrielle. It is still hard sometimes with people never knowing how to pronounce my name... but I really do enjoy it. Although, I am still looking for a good spelling for Gabby.
my name is gabrielle too and my nickname is gabi - its the french version and i love it i have been'told it is very sexy and suits me :)
well my name is genevi've and i pronounce gen-vee-ev ("gen" spoken as the french "je" ). no one can ever'say it right. My father is French and my mother is of French descent and that is how they pronounce my name.
u should get together wiht that girl (lla) apeapeape named zabana or somthing like that because then you could save lots of money becauseyou can now SHARE your tiaras. now that is an inter'sting tidbittlle of info for yall. my cux jessica say that your lawn needs mowing because she is tryin to fish in the ice (over her It's called ice-fishing)..and your grass is blocking her view of the next tsumani.
I love this name. I actually heard the name Gabriella from High School Musical and wanted to name my daughter that, but my hubby liked Gabrielle better and now I do too.. I love my little Gaby!!
My name is Gabrielle and I am often called Gabriel. I haven't met too many people with the name Gabrielle, but I have had my encounters. I go by Gabi, but for a while I tried Brie...but it didn't stick. As I'm reading these comments It's odd for me to hear that people also go by Brie...and spell it the'same. My family and a few of my lifelong friends call me Gabrielle, but for the most part its Gabi.
My name is Gabrielle obviously haha. When i was younger i always imagined myself changing my name to something more simple and "cool" like Skylar or Michelle because i found my name'so uncommon and ugly. However, now I'm 18 years old and i love my name, and i think for all you girls named Gabrielle don't shorten your name to a nickname like Gabby or Gab it doesn't do justice to how beautiful our name really is!
My name is Gabrielle... it is kind of weird to hear from all of these peopl named Gabrielle too. I am trying to write a paper on my name, and it is very difficult because I feel like there is not much to say about it. People say Gabriel all the time, and that is annoying. I'd rather have a really girly name then have people mistaking my name for a guy's name. Everyone calls me Gabbi. I know 2 people that are named Gabrielle. It's an ok name I guess.
My Names Gabrielle, I think its too girly, so I'm called Gabbie I prefer it :)
I had my second daughter in october of 05 I named her gabrielle I love her name if we ever decide to call her anything sort it well be elle. Although for now she is still gabrielle
I love the name Gabrielle, It's a very strong name to have, any one with that name'should feel very blessed,it comes from the boys name Gabriel, who was a messanger angel for God.May God bless me one day with a little Gabrielle.
Many people such as teache's call me Gabriel as in the name of a boy. It really makes me mad because its my brothe's name; but I still love my name. There is not alot of Gabreille's out there thats why its so great.
hi name is gabrielle i wrote a letter on the 8th of december about my nickname called elle when people say the name gabrielle is not nice for your child becuse It's it is great and fun becuse there is not many people called gabrielle so bring more gabrielles in the world.
i do not really like the name Gabrielle or Gabriella - however i do like the name Gaby (or Gabby) and it is one of a few names that i am thinking of naming my baby girl. Gaby Elizabeth maybe.
My Name is gabrielle. I like it very much because it is religous. Also, my name is french. i am 50% french, so, it makes sence.
