Comments for the name Arabella

Comments for ARABELLA:

Arabella is a wondrous, beauty of a name. As a matter of fact, a tragic bearer of this name is our youngest president John F. Kennedy's still-born daughter Arabella, who is buried in their family cemetery which includes John F. Kennedy Jr., Jaqueline Kennedy Oanasis, and sadly babies Arabella and Patrick Kennedy.

An 18th century novel by Charlotte Lennox is "The Female Quixote: or, The Adventures of Arabella". The titular heroine is a noble, though misguided, young woman who has to learn to balance the realities of contemporary society with the unrealistic exalted ideals she has imbibed from reading too much historical fiction.

I think Arabella is Babe's real name on All My Children (the character, not the actor). I don't like her that much, but I'm still trying to decide if I like this name or not.

Arbella Stewart (not a spelling error - her name was spelt with only two A's) was a cousin of Elizabeth I and at one time expected to be named her heir. It didn't happen, of course, but she has sometimes been dubbed the "Lost Queen" of England.

This beautiful name is behind the eponymous Georgette Heyer novel and the Arctic Monkeys song from their album AM. Both versions of the girl while completely different are positive, cool and attractive. Since I don't personally know any Arabellas (let's face it, sometimes that can forever ruin a name one would otherwise like quite well; for me that's Rebecca) I think of the Heyer character or the song when I hear the name. Love it, would consider using it.
