Doesn't age well to me. should only be a nickname for Gabrielle if it was up to me.

TiffanyS Says:


I think of this name as coming from Gabrielle, and therefore meaning "God is my might."

Hailey Says:


Such a pretty, feminine name. I knew a girl whose name was Aubrielle and she went by Brielle. She was a sweet, beautiful young woman who wore this name well.

Lola Says:


It just kind of has a nasal sound to it.... Not nice sounding. I do like the idea though!
I might go for another french name that is a little more traditional like Eloise or Colette.

This is my middle name. I actually prefer it over my first name, but it doesn't really suit me.

SoDallas3 Says:


I love Brielle. She's just so French Chic and frankly I don't care about the cheese reference. You aren't naming the child after the cheese, you are naming them after a REGION in France. Two of my cousins whom I'm close to (and are like sisters to me) are Briony and Isabella, so it would be a nice way to honour them if I ever have a daughter.

I think this is a pretty name but just remember, you are basically naming your child cheese.
