Lately I've been liking a name that a lot of people think is too old-fashioned...Mabel. What do you think of the name? Middle name ideas are welcome if you have any.

I think it is old fashioned but i love it. I think it is really pretty and works well. I think it could also work nicely as a middle name. If it is used as a fn though, pair it will a more common kinda trendy firs tname to balance out the styles.

  • Interests:I LOVE reading. I'm into almost every genre and generally read a book a week, if possible. I like Iris Johansen, Karen Marie Moning, Stephen King, James Patterson, Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë, Diana Gabaldon, Kathy Reichs, and Robert Burns (every Scot's favorite author). I really love music and even got accepted to the Mason Gross School of Performing Arts at Rutgers University (my alma mater) for vocal performance. Unfortunately performance life was not for me, so I went into English Lit and French instead. Music is still a big part of my life, and I like a multitude of musical genres from Reggae to Rock to Opera. I've seen Carmen and La bohème each twice. (And I cry every time.) My husband and I also have a special place in our hearts for The Beatles.

It's not one of my favoirite names, but I agree with Smile. You should pair it with a more common/modern name to balance out the styles.

I like the name Mabel but spelled this way Maybelle. As smile stated I also think you should pair it with a modern name so there will be an alternate name to the old-fashioned name. Belle could also be used as a nickname for Mabel/Maybelle

Maybelle Cheyenne
Maybelle Victoria
Maybelle Elise
Maybelle Saige
Maybelle Fiona
Maybelle Harper
Maybelle Blair
Maybelle Braylin
Maybelle Sophia
Maybelle Olivia
Maybelle Reese
Maybelle Penelope

Hope these help!
