Gabriela, Gabriella

which spelling? I love both with one and it with the double l’s. [name]Gabrielle[/name], [name]Gabriella[/name] was on our list, I dunno where it went. Thoughts? Also, I’d like some middle name suggestions, Her last name would be [name]Terry[/name].

I like [name]Gabriella[/name] better. I really like [name]Gabrielle[/name], too, I love both almost equally. I’ve always loved [name]Eleni[/name], [name]Elena[/name], and [name]Joy[/name] with [name]Gabrielle[/name]/[name]Gabriella[/name]–what about [name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Joy[/name], [name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Eleni[/name], [name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Elena[/name]? Or even [name]Gabrielle[/name] [name]Joy[/name], [name]Gabrielle[/name] [name]Eleni[/name], or [name]Gabrielle[/name] [name]Elena[/name]?

Good luck!

I had [name]Claire[/name] [name]Gabriella[/name] as an option on my girls list. I think [name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Claire[/name] would be pretty too though. I also like the suggestion of [name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Joy[/name]. I prefer the two L’s spelling, also. Here are some suggestions.

[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Faith[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Renee[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Jayne[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Jolene[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Susanne[/name]
[name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Kristine[/name]

I really like both spellings, but kind of expect a Spanish looking surname with [name]Gabriela[/name]. Which is by no means to say you can’t use it, but I do think people will assume the correct spelling a lot more with the spelling with two l’s There’s also a nice symmetry, since there are two r’s in your last name, so the repeated letter in both names looks neat.

[name]Gabriella[/name] has slightly better rhythm with your last name, to me, than [name]Gabrielle[/name], but both are quite nice. [name]Gabriella[/name] is 4 syllables and [name]Terry[/name] 2, so a 1 or 3 syllable middle is nice, [name]Gabrielle[/name] 3 and [name]Terry[/name] 2, so a 1 or 4 syllable middle is nice. I like pp’s suggestion of [name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Joy[/name]!

Good luck!
