Thread: Cool, unusual -ella names?
November 23rd, 2013 08:17 PM #11
I'm so happy most of you don't think of areola with Ariella! I still don't know if I could convince myself to use it--I don't want to lose Arianne at all!--but I am more open to not keeping it blacklisted.
And omgoodness, I don't know how I missed Luella, Sybella, and Fiorella! And even Adella/Adela (I like Adella much more, even though it's not the proper spelling. I came across Adella first--and said AH (as in apple) - dell-ah as opposed to ah-DELL-ah--so that's how I instinctively say it), which wasn't mentioned, but Della was. I like Fiora more than Fiorella, but Fiorella is pretty cool.
Please keep the ideas coming!

I have no idea what areola is--that connection is lost on me.
As for -ella names, I have a few, but what about -bel/Bella names? I find those intriguing, and there's a lot of them that people are unaware of.
Prunella( this is not one of my favorites)

@sadiejosephine - "areola" usually refers to the darker colored skin on the human breast. You can see why I'd be concerned about the tie. I'm not opposed to Bella names, but I'm more thinking about just Ella ones. I'm pretty familiar with most Bella names, and I'm not sure I want to go there, since Isabelle is already my favorite girls' name. I do love Bella and Bella names, though! I like Adabella (also Adorabella), Aristella, Elizabella (Elisabella?), Luella, etc. on your list.
@maggiefromcanada - I had totally forgotten about Antonella, too! With Annie, Ella, and Nell, it certainly is darling. I met the cutest little baby girl (omgoodness!) a week or two ago whose name was Antonella--she was such a baby doll! It still seems a bit too tied Anthony/Antony for me, though. The feminizations I usually like (Georgiana, Charlotte, Josephine, etc.) seem to stand on their own feet--are both strong and sweet and definitely all girl. I have to remind myself that they originated as forms of George, Charles, and Joseph. But I still see Anthony/Antony a bit when I see Antonella (princessy and darling though it is!), so I'm not sure I'd go for it. Besides, I've never been a huge Anthony fan to begin with, so I think that's where my real hesitation lies. I really WANT to like it, though.

I like Ariella. I didn't connect it to areola until you mentioned it, but now I can see it.
As for ella names, there are two unusual names that I've heard only once and I like both. I met a little girl named Adrielle years ago. Sounds like a combination of Adrienne and Ariel. Her parents called her Elle, but you could make it Ella too. I also met a little girl named Norella and I thought that was unusual and pretty. She went by Nora or Nori though. A friend of mine also had a friend named Zelle that she called Elle. I never met her so I don't know if she ever went by Ella, but you could.
I also like Nella and Nellie (you could call her Ella).
