Christabel is a fantastic name! I'd say everyone should have it, but then it wouldn't be so charmingly rare :-)

Bobcat108 Says:


There was a character on a kids' TV show...maybe Captain Kangaroo?...named Clarabelle the cow. Christabel was the name of the female protagonist in Anton Meyer's The Last Convertible...she was a very positive character, so I have positive connotations about the name.

Guest Says:


Sounds like a cow's name to me.

Giinkies Says:


I like this name. It's got the same religious connotation as Isabelle (which means "Gift of God"), it's familiar enough due to the series of popular Chris- names and it's got the trendy -bel ending. I wonder why this name isn't more popular, it definitely has the potential to be more popular.
