There is nothing about this name that's trying too hard. It's a matter of personal preference, I can think of many unappealing names but Mirabelle especially in French, which I speak is far more beautiful than Kathryn. Open your mind a little :-).

Myrabelle looks better in my opinion of this name

Given the recent popularity of Isabelle, Mirabelle seems a little too "trying too hard" to be trendy but not trendy, and that is sad because I'm sure it is a lovely old, vintage name that is due for a comeback. Not for me, though--there is something very unappealing to me about the sound of this name. I am always surprised when people sing its praises.

I prefer Marielle, although this name does not have the -belle sound. It just reminds me a lot of the fruit. But the nn Mira is awsome.

Zelliew Says:


I prefer Miranda

One of the very elaborate girly-girl names. Not what I usually go for, but I understand the appeal, and I think Mirabelle, Mirabel or Mirabella would make a great alternative to the more popular Isabelle(a)/Annabelle(a)/etc. It sounds lovely in that fussy vintage way, and the meaning of marvelous is great (though Nameberry should really fix that typo there -.-).

Don't you mean Clarabelle? Clarabelle was a cow, not Mirabelle.

I'm sorry but I picture this name on a cow more than a girl.
