"Jeepers ok, My name is Annabelle and personally I love it. I agree that "Annabel" or any other spelling just seems weird. The only issue I do have is that hardly anyone spells it right... even my own teachers, they spell it Annabel, or Anabel or Annabell which I hate. I'm always correcting people." Apr. 28, 2018:

"My daughter is Annabelle Faith, and for the first year of her life people would constantly mistake her for a doll - which I think fits my idea of the name Annabelle being an old fashioned, feminine girly name. We had many compliments on how she has such a pretty feminine name 😊 She has blond hair with small ringlets, blue eyes and is a very petite girly girl. Her Nickname is Annie which was our intention from the start, she answers to both names. I LOVE the name and it fits her perfectly 😊" Apr. 1, 2016:
"I love my name Anabel, it is a beautiful name and I want my full name to be said not Bella or Anna because together they sound simply beautiful. I don't care what people say about my name because I know I love it and that the only thing that matters. Although if your child doesn't like the name Anabel I would recommend also calling her Bella or Anna so that in school she can have a choice and be used to it." Feb. 25, 2015:
"Naming my daughter this. To the person who is naming their daughter Piper or Fallon who says Annabelle sounds like a southern little girl,with a giant lollipop, ok...but Piper and Fallon sound like either boys' names, or tall, pencil-shaped girls who wear pantsuits and wear reading glasses to peruse the NYT crossword puzzle before going to a late-night screening of an old Woody Allen movie...alone."

"My daughter is Annabelle Elizabeth. The name fits her perfectly. She looks like a child from one of those old fashioned photographs and the name is a bit old fashioned. It's one that won't go out of style which is something I love about it. I also love the meaning. Anna is gracious and Belle is beautiful." Jul. 19, 2009:

"I love the name Annabelle and even though I'm not an adult yet, I feel like I will love my name and live with it the rest of my life...
Some people spell it:
But I think Annabelle is the correct way to spell the name. I have never met another person named Annabelle and I like that my name isn't common. I think Annabelle is an amazing name and sometimes it makes me feel powerful, creative, gracious, and sometimes even dainty. :)
I hope other people read this and think about what their name means to them!" Sep. 27, 2021:

"My name is Anabel I personally don?t like my name so I tell everyone to call me Annie. Why you ask because I get bullied because of this name.

I always liked fighting so I took boxing classes and there was this little girl probably 4-6 and she was the first person in my life to say ? I like your name.?" Dec. 8, 2019:
"my 12 year old daughter is named Annabelle Riley, and I adore her name, she doesn't like it very much because of that movie and the doll. we have called her Annee since she was a baby (2 e's since there are 2 in Annabelle) but she lately has started to have her friends call her Ari (short for her first and middle names) because she was being teased by mean kids but I think she will come to like her name as I have (i stopped using my first name at 14 because of mean kids but my name is Pooka so actually weird) but as an adult I came to like my name and hope she will like hers one day as well." Mar. 28, 2018:
"My name is Annabelle and i love my name, i always get compliments on my name and how pretty it is and i totally agree with them. it?s good for nicknames, people call me, anna, belle, bella, annie, belly, etc. i don?t like when people spell it like ?annabel? though it seems improper. i think it should always be spelled annabelle."

"That's my name. I was named after the Edgar Allen Poe poem. Unfortunately, the stupid movie named the same makes those without much experience with Edgar Allen Poe associate the name negatively. I didn't like my name decades ago, so many people just call me Ann." Nov. 13, 2016:
"My beautiful ten yr old is Annabelle Joy. She loves her name and so do many who hear it. Other names that could work if you like this are Arielle and Brielle." Jul. 9, 2016:
"My given birth name is Anabel. I hated it growing up because kids would ryhm it with things like ding-a-bell or Anna-smell. but in my opinion mean kids will always be mean kids and it doesn't matter what your name is. As I got older I started loving my name because of it's meaning and that it was so uncommon. When I had the opportunity I legally changed the spelling to Annabelle. I get so many compliments, especially at work when they see my nametag. A majority of compliments come from men as well." Jun. 27, 2012:
"my wife likes Annabelle but I hate it..we are prolly going to go with Piper or Fallon.
We live in the northeast (massachusetts) and to me, Annabelle sounds like some southern girl dragging a big lolly pop behind her with a bonnet on........not for use in massachusetts, no Way." Mar. 22, 2011:
"My Daughter is pregnant with a little girl. They plan to name her Annabelle Marie. I love that name! They want to call her Belle for short. Both names are beautiful. I think it will be a nice name for any age. Reminds me of an adorable, sweet, little girly girl." Mar. 28, 2009:
