if you don't mind that it's the name of a fruit as well:
i think it makes a great name! i've never actually heard it as a name before. Mia is currently in the top 10, with Mira far behind (#665 in 2013). Mila is more popular (#115). and then there's also Mina (#834). i don't see any records of the name in the top 1000 for the US before 2001, and within the last ~10 years it's climbed about 300 ranks. so i think it's likely the name will continue to rise in popularity.
I think you are fine
Thanks so much ladies :)
I do not think it will climb significantly in popularity. If it makes a top 1000 appearance I do not think it will make it that far up the charts, I think it will stay in a relatively low position.
I only say that as I love Isabelle and to me this name is nice but doesnt have that je ne sais quoi
Well that's good news to me you feel that way because as I too love the name Isabelle, it's just too popular now and and so overused that the personal associations become negative at time. Mirabelle is just so much more beautiful now to me than the popular names Isabelle and Annabelle. Not that I dislike them. I'm happy that this name will hopefully not climb in popularity.
Mirabelle fits my beautifull baby girl perfectly. I was just curious as to if anyone thought it would become extremely popular ... Not if they actually like it or not.
I can't see it ever becoming hugely popular, so I think you're OK with it.
