Inspiration for a name to go with Gabriel

This is my first post! I’m expecting a little girl in 6 weeks and already have a son called [name]Gabriel[/name]. I like classic names but nothing pretentious. I’m looking for inspiration! Middle name will be a family name from my side of the family…
Thanks in anticipation xx

[name]Welcome[/name] to Nameberry, and congratulations! What are some names that you like, to give us an idea of your style? Here are some ideas:


[name]Hi[/name] thanks for the welcome! We love [name]Hannah[/name] but don’t think we can use it for family reasons :frowning: I quite like [name]Elizabeth[/name] but not sure if I love it. Really like [name]Victoria[/name] but I hate [name]Vicky[/name] so wouldn’t use it!
It’s so difficult. I really want a name I love not just like! Help :slight_smile:


I’d recommend going with something very feminine. I’ve heard Gabriel used on a girl as well, so something without doubt girly would be a good choice.

I also love the name Victoria but hate Vicky. I’ve heard of Rory as a nickname for Victoria and I think that is adorable. Others that might work:

Margaret (nn Daisy)

I should say I’m in the uk. [name]Gabriel[/name] raised a few eyebrows. It’s not popular here at all. We call him [name]Gabe[/name].

If you like [name]Victoria[/name], you may like:

If you like [name]Elizabeth[/name], you may like:
[name]Elspeth[/name] “[name]Eppie[/name]”

If you like [name]Hannah[/name], you may like:

I’m also in the UK…I’m also looking for a classic, but unusual nane. [name]How[/name] about any of the following:

Hm, I’m getting a very feminine, fairly classic, possibly biblical vibe from your style. You may like:
[name]Ariana[/name] - My brother in law is named [name]Gabriel[/name] and if my DH would have been a girl, he would have been [name]Ariana[/name]. I also feel like it has a similar feel as [name]Victoria[/name]?

Thanks everyone! I really like [name]Naomi[/name] but hubby is not sure. [name]Ariana[/name] is a good friends baby name and I would never steal it from her. Very pretty though.
Going to play around with [name]Annabelle[/name] and [name]Heloise[/name] for a few days and see how they feel.
If anyone has any further suggestions please throw them out there! :slight_smile:

Quite fond of [name]Georgiana[/name] pronounced Jorjayna, the old English way. She would probably spend her life correctly everyone wouldn’t she?

[name]Gabriel[/name] and [name]Georgina[/name] would be quite a pair, but I think they work well together (although maybe a lot of correcting on pronunciation). What about using a variant of [name]Elizabeth[/name]-- [name]Eliza[/name] or [name]Bettina[/name]? I think both of these go great with [name]Gabriel[/name]. Although not absolute, I think another 3-syllable name works best.

Some other suggestions:

[name]Gabriel[/name]/[name]Gabe[/name] and


[name]Hi[/name] just wanted to let you know our little lady arrived a fortnight ago safe and well.

As soon as hubby saw her he said she’s an [name]Elizabeth[/name] which is what we named her. It suits her perfectly!

Thanks for all your help and suggestions xx
