  • "My daughters name is Mabel. She is currently 7 and she loves it! It means 'Well loved' and i can say that every person that ever meets her falls in love with her. She is the most kind, compassionate and thoughtful little lady you would ever meet. I'm pleased my husband wouldn't agree to call her Sadie, although i love that too. Everyone makes a comment when you introduce her or they hear you call her name in a shop "Is her name Mabel? Oh I haven't heard that for years." or "My aunts name was Mabel, she was a lovely lady." or ""Mabel? Awwww, i wish I'd thought of that when I had my daughter!" "Mabel?! What an adorable old fashioned unique name. I'm so pleased its come back again." People also often comment on the combination of my three daughters names Polly, Mabel & Violet. They all mesh well together. Mabel is still relatively uncommon in Australia but we do know of a few other little girls with the same name.
