"My name is Gabriela and most people call me Gaby. I spell "Gaby" with 1 "B", but most people think it's two "B's" It REALLY annoys me when people spell my name with two B's, because it's spelled with one B. My parents had thought about naming me Olivia, and I honestly think I look like one. Most people also say I look like a Gabriela or an Olivia, either which. I do like the name Ela though, because it's finally something other than Gaby or Gabriela." Sep. 27, 2017:
"My name is Gabriela or you could call me gaby I get what you guys are saying when people first meet me they spell my name with 1 L or an I or 2 Bs and it ticks me off but I love my name I wouldn't change for the world but I am full Spanish" Mar. 26, 2017:
"My name is Gabriela and SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many people spell it wrong. they spell it gabriella or gabby, when it is gabriela or gaby. I especially hate when someone calls me Gabrielle. I love my name though, and I think it is perfect and uniquely common-y'know?" Mar. 7, 2017:
"My name is Gabriela and when I was younger I hated it and people called me Gabi but as I got older I prefered Gabriela as I thought Gabi sounded childish. People always mispell my name, i don't think I know anyone other than close friends or familly that have spelt it correctly on their first try! People often call me Gabe-riela or Gabrielle and it ticks me off... I never met anyone called Gabriela with 1 L untill i was 14 and one of my friends shared that name which was nice and since then I have met only one other person called Gabriela with 1 L. My name is spelt with one L as I am half Spanish and in Spain Gabriella is pronounced Gabrieya. The two other Gabrielas I have met are also Spanish or half Spanish. I love my name and I am not to keen on any of the nicknames but in school people always called me gabby or gab or ella or bri-bri. Many people still can't spell my name and I think the worst spelling I have come accross spelt by one of my friends is Garibla..." Nov. 2, 2014:
"That's my name! I'm very much proud of my name and somewhat ticked off when people misspell or pronounce it. It's simple.. but elegant. :)" Mar. 4, 2014:
"I loooooooove my name. I write my name with only one "l" because I'm Hispanic and that's the way people usually write it the most! My nickname in school is Gaby or Gabby or Gabi or how ever anyone wants to spell it :) but it could be nice if people called me stuff like Ella, Bri, Bella because those are beautiful names too or nicknames :)" Dec. 15, 2013:
"People mispronounce it wrong all the time:gabe-briela or gabrella.Some people completely miss the A at the end and call me Gabriel. It's pronounced Gab-bri-ella, every Gabriella or Gabriela i've met pronounces it that way. I go by gabby because it's just easier for others. I really like my name though, i get compliments often:)" Jun. 12, 2013:
"Well my name is gabriela and I lovvve it (; I think it is very unique and spontanious most of my close family calls me gaby when I have a girl I want to name ger gabriela too but I want her nickname to be ella." Mar. 15, 2013:
"My name is Gabriela. But if I wright it I put gabriella with 2 l's. My nickname is Gaby in school. Some of my teachers still call me Gabriella. I don't mind but I would want people to call me Bri or Ella." Jun. 7, 2012:
"i loooveeee my name. I get called Gaby most of the time. One issue is that often new teachers call me Gabriel as they miss the A out and it was quite irratating! I get nicknamed Gaby, Babi, Gaba and similar names by close friends and relatives. I really love it though!" Mar. 21, 2011:
"It's mine name, and yes people miss spell it a lot, but I don't really mind. People also call me "Gabby" which irritates me, "Ella" would be a more suitable nick name." Oct. 7, 2010:

"I lovees me my name, i think its great...

because if i had 2 it would be gabrieya:)" May. 3, 2010:
"I like my name very much although like someone before me has written I would like to be the only Gabriela I know and that is not the case. I live in Argentina and it is not the most common name but it isn't very uncommon either. I would also like it better if people would just call me Gabriela but they always seem to need to shorten it to Gaby or soemthing like that." Apr. 1, 2010:

"I LOVE MY NAME GABRIELA!

I STILL LOVE THE NAME!
EVERYOND SPELLS IT WRONG THOUGH!" Mar. 3, 2010:
"My name is Gabriela and while I think its a gorgeous name I hate the fact that its exactly the same as my mother's. There is nothing unique to me about it cause its like a hand me down and I don't even have a middle name. I'd enjoy my name more if there wasn't another Gabriela in every one of my classes - it gets kind of annoying and I have numerous nicknames; gaby, gabs, gabbers, etc. And when people can't say my name they just say Gabrielle." Feb. 5, 2010:
"I named my daughter Gabriela Hope. The one l spelling looked more exotic,and that's why my husband and I chose to spell it with one l. I hate when people mispronounce her name as "Gabe-riela." I also don't like the nickname Gabi, but we live with it. I think I'm going to ask people to shorten her name to Bri if they want a nickname, but we will always call her Gabriela. It's a beautiful name, like music." Jan. 5, 2010:
"my name is Gabriella, with two Ls, which is the Italian way of spelling, one L is Spanish, and without the a (Gabrielle) is French. I also never liked people calling me gabby (everyone does)...the name could have much prettier nicknames like bri or ella, but i guess gabby's just the first thing people think of! but I LOVE my name anyway!!"

"My names is also Gabriela...and I can relate to all the Gaby ladies here, its usually misspronounced, misspelled, but i think its just because its not a familiar name, wich makes it somewhat unique..so hurray for the gabys...! I do love my name." Apr. 3, 2009:

"Gabriela is my name too, and I can't count how many times people have added extra L's, or forgotten the A at the end, or mispronounced it as "Gabe-riela" or "Grabiela" -- and no, you can never find it on anything EVER. Still, I always get compliments on how beautiful and original it is.
And remember -- ONE L is better. You'll always be "one L of a girl." ;)" Jan. 25, 2009:

"I named my daughter Gabriela. I think it's a sophisticated but friendly name. We pronounce it with the short "a" sound, like "gabby." People are always mispronouncing it and always spelling it with two "l's" instead of the "one l" spelling which I think looks much better. I love this name!" Feb. 3, 2006:

"I love my name (Gabriela) but my school has like 10 other girls with the either Gabriela or Gabriella and i dislike it because its a common name here." Jan. 18, 2017:
"My name is Gabriela and I am half on it. I like it but I also do not like it because I always have to tell people "Gabriela with 1 L". I am Mexican so Gabriella would be pronounced as "Gabrieya" due to the 2 L's sounding like a y in Spanish. But yeah people call me Gabby now which soon I will start telling people to call me Gabriela because Gabby sounds a bit childish. Also, the more I say it, the more my name sounds weird so yeah again, it's alright." Feb. 27, 2015:
"My names actually Gabriella, two L's. I think my name is beautiful. When my mom named me she didnt want people to call me gabby because she just loved the name as is. Although my friends all call me Gabby. My family is italian so they call me Bella for short because it means beautful. I love both nicknames. I dont think Gabby sounds tacky or ugly. If you think a girl with the nickname Gabby sounds like they talk alot, take me for example. I am really shy. People often think Gabriella sounds like a really girly, loud, snotty name, but i am none of those. aha. I also get called many other nicknames such as gab,gabs, bri, brielle, briella, ella , and of course the most common gabby and bella. I recomend this name to many woman who are expecting a girl and are thinking of a name. I have got many compliments on my name and i love it myself.(:" Dec. 14, 2013:

"I have yet to meet another Gabriela (with one L) in person which makes my name seem more rare than it actually is. My sister's name is Priscila so we have gotten countless compliments over the years. My mom has told me that the main reason why she loved the name Gabriela was because in the bible, Gabriel was the angel that brought the good news to Mary about her soon-to-be baby boy (Jesus).

"This is my name and it's really frustrating because somehow people either want to spell it with two ll's or they fail to hear the "a" at the end if it and call me "Gabriel" instead. Overall, I find it pretty unique. I don't often run into a lot of Gabrielas." Jul. 14, 2007:
