Comments for MIRABELLA:

This is my name, and I was driven to explore more of its origins because of its uniqueness. While it is Italian, it can also be translated roughly in Spanish as "she looks beautiful". Mira means "she looks" and bella is "beautiful". This name also has roots in French, but the meaning is the same. I love this name, and hope I could be beneficial to anyone who is looking for information on it.

Mira does not mean "she looks" in Spanish. It actually means "look." She looks would be "se mira." So in Spanish Mirabella (pronounced Mee-rah-beh-yah) would literally mean "look beautiful."

Plunkett, Mirabella (1839 - ?)
Famous for falling in love with a merman in Loch Lomond while on holiday. When her family forbade her to marry him, she transfigured herself into a haddock and was never seen again. (Harry Potter)

I think this name is a way better name than the oh-so-popular Isabella. I like the Mira part the best.

I personally like this name a little better than Isabella. If I have a daughter I'd love to name her Mirabella.

Really lovely name, certainly usable as a middle name, perhaps a bit too blatantly Italianate for British English usage. :)

Correct Italian pronunciation:

Mee-Rah-Beyl-Lah

The "I" (Mi) is stressed to "EE." Remember to roll your "R." "A"s are always as in "Father." For "Be," the "E" is spoken much like "Eh," or otherwise "Aye." Keep in mind that no letter is neglected, so both "L"s must be pronounced. Most easily accomplished by placing greater emphasis on the figure before (in this case, "E"). Again, "A"s are as in "Father" (La).
Now, simply add your best and most dramatic Italian accent and-- VoilĂ !
