My guess, it's pronounced like A-P-le.

I won't use this one either. It seems like the child would be made fun of.

For some reason the spelling makes me think of "a capella".

I can't help but find this name extremely cute. I don't think I'd name my son this, though, as it is a very old fashioned name.
