Comments for CARMEL:

Mt. Carmel was also the place in Israel where God showed his superiority over the Canaanite god Baal. God, at the request of Elijah the prophet, rained down fire that burnt up an altar laden with a water-soaked sacrifice. His demonstration turned the hearts of the people back to Himself.

Saying it's a biblical name isn't accurate, as it wasn't used by any character in the bible. Instead in should be categorized as Jewish.

It's still a biblical name; it's a name of a place in the Hebrew bible.

I'd take this name over the other "garden" names any day; it (to me) has this simple air of regality about it.

The original use of 'Carmel' is actually for boys. Even though now it is most associated with women (like the names Avery and Taylor etc.) this is very much a male name.

The three I've encountered, two Christian and one Jewish, all pronounce it car-MEL.

Contradictory to what most have said about the pronunciation, here in Australia they DO say "KAHR-məl" rather than "Car-MEL", though that might be we lazy Aussies and our lazy accent :p I know three Carmels personally, all in their fifties to seventies, all lovely ladies. A beautiful name and a beautiful meaning. I think this name should make a comeback, it's sooo pretty, much better than the 'Carmen' variant.
