Gorgeous name. I love the nick names "Gabbie", "Brie" and "Bella", too.

I'm the one who said "a pretty named ruined by an evil b-tch I know" and unfortunately that image is still there for me. I have a childhood friend named Gabrielle, so that helps it. I think the nickname Gabby is ugly though. I like Brielle much more.

Gabriella S. Says:


My name is Gabriella and at first I didn't like it because it was so long, but now I absolutely love it. I like to go by the name Bella but a lot of people just call me Gabriella. This name really fits my personality and it means "God is my Strength" which I totally love.

Virus Says:


Hahaha I never thought that the name "Gabriella" is popular. Ever since I was a kid, the only Gabriella I knew was myself. The others were either be "Gabrielle" or "Gabriel". But I'm proud to be "Gabriella" 'cause it's unique :) So, if my friends ever search for me, they wouldn't be confused with some other people because I'm the only Gab they knew.

Daiseymae Says:


Gabriella is my daughter's middle name. I think it is a gorgeous name.

gabriella_allyce Says:


My name is Gabriella, and I love it. I get compliments all the time. I have an Italian last name too and people are always saying my name makes me sound like royalty or a designer. I'm not a fan of the nickname "Gabby" however, but people call me that all the time and I'm used to it. When I was a kid (early 90s) I was the only Gabriella I knew.
