"My name is Carmel and I was born in 1961. I was named after Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. My Mother said that my name was Elizabeth for two days, until she decided to change it. I often pray to my Patron Saint in times of need. I used to hate my name, as well. I have grown to love it's meaning and importance. Cheers to all the Carmels out there!!!" Mar. 13, 2019:

"I've been called caramel, caramac, camel and even camel toe and when I was younger I wanted to change my name to something 'normal' like Rachel, Amy or Emma but I now love it. People always compliment me on my name and in fact people with more common names are usually jealous of how unusual mine is!
I've never met any other people called Carmel but there's now a character on Hollyoaks (popular UK soap) so a lot more people recognise the name because of that.
My mum is from the south (of England) and pronounces it CARmel but I grew up in the north where people pronounce it carMEL. I don't tend to notice how people say it but I do prefer CARmel. or Carms or Carmie which are far nicer nicknames than camel toe!" Dec. 1, 2008:
"I know two twins named Carmel and Woodrow and they both relate to wood. I wonder if this was a coincidence for their mother." Jul. 28, 2007:
