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.
