    I don't know -- I'm having the same dilemma over Mirabel vs Mirabelle. I'm interested to see the responses you get!

    Re: Annabel or Annabelle

    For me it's an issue of balance. I'm a very visual person so I like names, and words in general, to look balanced. Annabel looks top heavy to me, as there are two "n"s and only one "l", however Annabelle is perfectly even- two n's, two l's, two sets of vowels, etc. In the case of Mirabel vs. Mirabelle, I prefer the former- one r, one l. The former looks to bottom heavy. That's my very personal opinion though, and in reality I don't think it makes a huge difference which one is chosen.

    I prefer Annabel (and Mirabel and Isabel). The shorter, cleaner versions seem more sophisticated to me.
