Gender: F Meaning of Mirabelle: "marvelous" Origin of Mirabelle: French

If you're looking for a fresher belle name than Isabelle, Mirabelle is lovely, and we also like the extra flourish of Mirabella. And if you want a nature tie, Mirabelle is also the name of a delicate French plum.

Steve Martin chose the name for the heroine of his novel Shopgirl--Mirabelle Buttersfield..

Another pretty possibility: Maribel.
