  • "My name is Gabriel, and I'm a girl, and it's pronounced the way Gabrielle is spelt. I don't find it bothersome at all. Everyone calls me Gabby because I'm not very used to hearing Gabriel, but I find my name quite unique for a girl. I also find the meaning very interesting." Mar. 19, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "Well the only reason I found this page was because I'm writing a story and I was looking for a good name for a mysterious, kick-ass female character. I thought of Gabriel, but wasn't sure if would work for a female. Glad to see it's already in use. Anyone that thinks it's too masculine, is just too simple-minded and rigid. Evolve will ya?"
