Not very pretty. Annabel is much better.

Very unique and I love that it is medieval English, plus there are cute nickname options like Ama or Belle.

I love the name Amabel. To me, it has the edge over Annabel and Mabel, and is underused, compared to both of those names. I do also love Annabel, Annabelle, and Annabella, and Mabel is super cute, but Amabel is just a little less expected, a little older, and somehow, I just find that I am loving it. Amy could be a nickname, as could Belle.

Personally, I like it spelled "Annabel".

Amabel is one of the children in Georgette Heyer's novel, The Grand Sophy. She's a sweet little girl and when she becomes seriously ill with a fever, this serves as a major turning point in character development and plot for Sophy and Charles (the protagonists).

I really like the sound and meaning of the name Amabel. Amabel is such a cute name. Why did this name stop being used? D:

In the c.1215–30 French prose work 'The Lancelot-Grail', Amable is the name of a damsel who healed Lancelot after he drank water from a poisoned well. She fell in love with him and nearly died from love-sickness, but Lancelot, though he could not become her lover, agreed to become her champion.

Pronounced AH-ma-bel.

Are you guys pronouncing this name "AM-ə-bel" like Annabel or "ə-MAY-bəl" like Mabel? Or some other way - "AYM-ə-bəl" like the word amiable, "AYM-ə-bel".? What do you think?

I like the name Amabel, but I prefer Mabel, which I love. The "a" is just too random. When I first heard this name all I could think about was the word 'aimiable'. I do prefer this name over Annabel (sorry), and over Amanda (eew, sorry, I can't help it.) But still, I would never name my child Amabel. Sorry.

I love this name because it's unpopular and it means exactly the same thing as my name (Amanda). It also sounds like Annabel, which is a cute name.

My name is Annabel and the name Amabel reminds me of a little kid who can't pronounce Annabel properly. Sorry all those Amabel's.

This is a great name, and a very nice alternative to Annabel with a lovely meaning. It is uncommon, but not strange.

This is a pretty name without being too fancy, and with a charming meaning. To me it sounds prettier than its short form, "Mabel" (largely due the pronunciation), not that I don't like the name "Mabel".
