Variation of Sybil or Sibyl
"seer, oracle"

Sybella Origin and Meaning

The name Sybella is a girl's name of Greek origin meaning "seer, oracle".

The lovely Sybella is being nudged into the spotlight by two influences: the original Sybil (the most popular spelling) or Sibyl, name of the beauteous youngest sister of television's period megahit Downton Abbey, and Top Ten name Isabella. Biggest downside: There are an awful lot of girls with names that are variations of Bella around these days. But Sybella at least makes a distinctive member of the genre.
