    Sybil?

    I've recently fallen a bit in love with the name Sybil. I find it quite pretty, it reminds me of the character from Downton Abbey, but I've sometimes wondered if it was too weird/old-ladyish to be usable. Thoughts?

    LOVE Sybil! I also really like Sybella, too. I've been toying around with Olivia Sybil lately. I think it's really sweet but it seems like a lot of people who aren't Berries don't really appreciate the name.

    Downton Abbey, totally my favorite show on TV even though the awesome season is over, also gave me a name crush on Sybil, though I prefer the original spelling of Sibyl. I think it's going to be one of the vintage names that seem to be taking over now seen on plenty of little girls, so I def don't think it's just an old lady name. It's graceful, easy to pronounce, and not in the top 100. Gotta love it!

    I guess it's USEABLE, but I don't think it's wearable on a little girl or teenager, in my opinion. I like old lady names, but this one is just too old lady for me. :/ Mainly because all I think of is Sybil Trelawney from Harry Potter and the creepy movie "Sybil" about a woman with multiple personalities.

    I immediately think of the woman with the multiple personalities so I wouldn't use it. Sybella is pretty though.
