"Mirabelle" is a French word, which means a kind of a yellow plum.

The original spelling of this name is actually Mirabel. It has been in English-speaking use since medieval times. It was originally a man's name. Even though it is derived from the Latin word for wonderful ("mirabilis"), it is often associated with the French "bel/belle" (beautiful).

I LOVE this name. I think it is delicate, dainty, and pretty.

I'm kind of indifferent to the name, but it's always radiated a sense of sweetness for me. I have a character called Mirabelle Wood, and she's generally sweet and friendly, along with being overbearingly smart (c'mon, you know those people ;D).

Mirabelle (or its variants) is, to me, a very delicate, pretty name. It brings to mind a Snow White beauty.

The main character in Steve Martin's novella "Shopgirl" is named Mirabelle. The character was played by Claire Danes in the movie adaptation, also staring Steve Martin and Jason Schwartzman.

I find it elegant, refined, pretty - I love it and I just realised it five minutes ago!

Mirabelle could be a play on the name Maribelle, the "play" being it becoming more similar to "mirabelis." A parellel would be the relationship of Arabella to Annabel (see Arabella entry.)

Could also be a combination of the names MIRiam and isABEL. (Marie/Maria/Mary stem from the name Miriam.)

I don't like names like Annabella, Mirabella, or Isabella. Because they all end in A. Like Anna and Bella. It's just too many A's. But I love Mirabelle! So much and it's beautiful.

Mira would be a good nickname.

This is a really lovely name; it's a shame, in my opinion, that this name isn't used more often, and is more or less extinct. This name needs some sort of celebrity to name their child this to get it back in circulation, either that or a prominent member of a European royal family, or something. I don't think I'd use it personally, as a first name, at least, perhaps as a middle name, though, because I think it's just a bit too overly flouncy and feminine. But I can see no reason why this name shouldn't be as popular as Isobel, or some of the other -bel/-belle names, and frankly it would be a refreshing change. :)

Such a pretty name! Very princessy and different! Not even on the popularity charts of 09.

This is such a beautiful and underused name. I love both this spelling and Mirabel.

The name Mirabelle was given to 74 baby girls born in the US in 2012. It's quite rare, but very pretty. I like it :)
