"My name is the best but people often spell it wrong or want to call me Bella which I don?t like." Oct. 9, 2020:
"My name is Arabella. I do go by Bella, because I never really liked when I was younger to be called Arabella. So when I was about 5 years old I decided just to go by Bella. Nobody that I have ever met has pronounced it wrong. Everyone says my name a hard A-ra-bella-uh. I have met one other person named Arabella, in the whole decade I have been alive. I have loved this name my whole life, in my opinion no other name fits me better." Jun. 17, 2020:
"I've only ever met three other people who share my name and I've been called Isabella, Annabella, A, Arry, Bells, Bella, belly (i hated that) and even my mum's name (Tabitha??).

"I first saw this name over 10 years ago when my family was doing some ancestry work. I feel in love with it the moment I saw it. I've been patiently waiting to one day have a girl so I can call her this beautiful name. It's so sad to hear about how popular it's getting. I've always wanted my future daughter to have a unique name. My name is Jillian and I don't really know a lot of them, and I've always loved that about my name." Jun. 27, 2017:
