Her name means 'she of hair' or 'mother'. She is also know as Kybele and Magna Mater [Roman]. Her titles are: 'Mistress of the Animals', 'Mother of the gods, savior of who hears' and 'Accessible One'. She is the goddess of life, death, rebirth, nature, beasts especially lions and bees; caverns, mountain tops, walls, and fortresses. She was worshipped in Phrygia, Turkey, Mauretania, Morocco and Algeria; in Greece the cities of Athens, Ephesus, and Crete Island; Lyon, France; Madrid, Spain; Syria; and Alexandria, Egypt. Her most estatic follwers were castrated males who led the people in orgy type ceremonies with wild music, drumming, dancing, and drink.

Different. It almost sounds like the English name Sibyl.

I have heard this name pronounced "SY-bel", but it was probably a case of someone's mother reading the name and pronouncing it wrong, but still liking it.

I love this name. It's so feminine and unique. Although I prefer the spelling "Cybelle" with two L's.

What a beautiful name, very elegant and sophisticated, and not overused. In fact, I've only encountered this name in the track title Cybele's Reverie. I didn't know how to pronounce the name, and I thought it's ''si-BEL'', which actually sounds like a tremendously beautiful name. You could spell this Cybelle, Sybelle, Cibelle, or Sibelle, and pronounce it as ''si-BEL''. All would work, but this is also lovely. I don't like Sibyl, though.

Cybele's Reverie is a track by Stereolab.

I love this name, but I like it pronounced sib-ah-lee! It sounds pretty, softer and more unique!

I thought it wasn't half bad until I realized it rhymes with "Civilly".

The Modern Greek form is Kyveli (Κυβέλη). [noted -ed]

I like the sound of this name, but however, the meaning is so funny.
