Gabrielle Name Origin and History

Additional description of the name Gabrielle
Additional description of the name Gabrielle

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)

Additional name description Gabrielle


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.

historical figures

Coco Chanel (Gabrielle was born in Saumus, France) is one of the most influential fashion designers ever. Famous for her interpretation of the “little black dress†(think Audrey Hepburn in ’ €œBreakfast at Tiffany’sâ€) and elegant outfits famously worn by Jackie Kennedy in the 1960’s, Coco revolutionized the world of fashion of a woman. As she once said: “Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.†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. Her flirtatious beauty 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.

My name is Gabrielle. I love it in its full form, but I have so many nicknames. Most call me Gabby, but a few call me Gab, GabbyGoo, or Gabster. I hate it. If you name your daughter Gabrielle, call her Brielle or Bri from birth, thus eliminating Gabby, an extremely unflattering nickname, considering the dictionary meaning of "extremely talkative"!

09/30/2023 14:12:44

My name is Gabrielle but I go by Brielle or Bri with my really close friends. I love all three names, but when I start college next year, I'm going to introduce myself as Gabrielle instead of Brielle.

Just had a little girl this morning, and I'm very happy to say we named her Gabrielle - listening to these responses from everyone, most if not all seem very positive and there are plenty of variables for nicknames with Gabrielle, unlike most names...

This is my daughters name :) written by Rahela, July 06, 2008 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." Funny my full name is Gabrielle Alexandra, and people call me Gabriel and Gabriella too... weird. lol. I love my name, though I go by Gabby most of the time, because that's what people have called me since I was little. :]

06/25/2023 02:51:24

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.

04/27/2023 01:43:28

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.

03/12/2023 21:34:06

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!

03/07/2023 14:01:14

03/02/2023 09:42:20

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.

03/01/2023 18:07:46

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.

02/27/2023 03:14:14

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!

02/24/2023 05:17:30

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.

02/14/2023 23:06:42

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!

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.

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.

12/30/2022 16:12:42

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

12/23/2022 09:03:14

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!

12/18/2022 18:33:06

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.

12/18/2022 06:30:08

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.

12/12/2022 22:39:38

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.

12/12/2022 12:40:06

If our baby is a girl, we are naming her Gabrielle with Brielle or Bree as a nickname.

12/06/2022 01:12:04

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

11/30/2022 19:42:38

Joanna means "Gift of God" in french. Gabrielle means "Woman of God" in french. I hope this helps you, Joanna!

11/27/2022 15:35:36

I Have the name Gabrielle It's an ok name but i'd like a nickname instead of Gabby or Belle

11/26/2022 11:40:26

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.

11/09/2022 18:48:34

That is so weird, my name is Gabrielle Renee. How weird. Haha.

11/04/2022 14:29:40

HIGHLY BEAUTIMOUS! Classy and cute at the'same time.

10/31/2022 04:24:02

10/18/2022 11:38:16

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.

10/15/2022 03:06:44

my daughters name is Gabrielle AlexisRose. I always loved the name Gabrielle. we call her Gabi

10/13/2022 06:44:06

Can a boy be named a girl name❤️❤️❤️ Like Gabrielle or Danielle or something like it....

10/06/2022 12:48:08

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.

10/03/2022 14:51:24

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.

09/30/2022 20:26:16

my name is Gabrielle and its such a cool name because it has soooo many nicknames.

09/29/2022 04:28:08

My perfect baby girl is named Gabrielle and she fits it and rocks it! :)

09/26/2022 14:09:52

09/21/2022 13:04:56

09/21/2022 11:36:46

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!.

09/15/2022 22:11:14

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.

09/07/2022 10:48:58

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.

09/07/2022 01:24:42

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.

09/06/2022 05:08:00

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.

08/28/2022 14:28:48

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!!

08/28/2022 00:45:18

Gabrielle is a cool name cause theur are loads of nick names. My favauroite nick name is gab cause it is cool.

08/26/2022 22:13:12

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.

08/15/2022 22:42:00

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.

08/04/2022 08:32:24

It's too close to the'spelling of the boy's name Gabriel.

07/31/2022 09:22:48

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.

07/21/2022 19:42:54

It's my nameee i love it! It's cute and so female!

05/14/2022 18:26:24

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!

05/11/2022 06:15:36

There is nothing good about this except that It's short.

05/07/2022 13:30:18

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.

04/26/2022 16:43:48

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.

04/25/2022 01:23:06

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.

04/24/2022 14:24:18

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.

04/23/2022 04:33:00

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!

04/21/2022 00:23:42

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

04/12/2022 02:17:06

My name is Gabrielle. It's pretty common, actually.

03/28/2022 01:46:30

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.

03/27/2022 12:03:00

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 :)

01/22/2022 17:15:18

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.

01/12/2022 08:22:30

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.

01/03/2022 00:12:00

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!!

12/09/2021 12:46:12

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.

11/25/2021 19:22:12

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!

10/20/2021 16:51:54

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.

10/12/2021 02:59:24

My Names Gabrielle, I think its too girly, so I'm called Gabbie I prefer it :)

10/02/2021 16:04:12

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

09/25/2021 22:06:54

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.

08/25/2021 21:18:18

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.

08/08/2021 17:33:18

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.

07/24/2021 16:07:48

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.
