Mehitabel is the name of the cat in Don Marquis's Archy and Mehitabel, originally a newspaper serial but long better known in book form. It is the basis for the musical Shinbone Alley.

Edward Eager uses this name in Half Magic as the name of two ghostly sisters who are reconciled, Anne Mehitabel and Mehitabel Anne.

I personally prefer this spelling over Mehetabel. It just seems to flow more.

Erotic Oz novelist March Laumer used this name for his protagonist in "The Green Dolphin of Oz."

I quite like this name, it's odd and underused for a Biblical name. I'm not sure which spelling I prefer, Mehitabel or Mehetabel, probably the latter - the original, because you can get more nicknames out of it, such as Hetty, but with Mehitabel, the only nickname you can get out of this is Belle, which is alright as well I suppose, but I definitely think that this name and the original should be used more often. :)

Mehitibel is a perfectly ridiculous name. Heaven help the child who bears it.

Rather than Gossamer, Mehitabel is the perfect name for that big, fluffy red thing in Looney tunes cartoons.
