I don't love this name for a boy, but I was surprised how classic this was for a girl. It's got a really elegant, vintage musical feel and that surname-name thing going for it too. A really beautiful name, in my opinion.

It's pretty rude that you would insult what another berry named her child. I can understand why you don't like this name for a girl, but let's not personally attack anybody.

Gable? For a boy it's bad enough, but a nb actually used it for a girl and paired it with the lovely name Juliette. Gable Juliette makes no sense...looks like last name, first name on a list...Gable, Juliette...

Sounds too much like "cable" to me. And all I can picture is Anne of Green Gables.
