This name is EXTREMELY common in Latin America, especially in Brazil and Mexico. Out of 10 Brazilian girls at least one will be a Gabriela. In Spanish, Gabriela’s are usually nicknamed Gabrielita or Gabita and of course the inevitable Gaby/Gabi. In my opinion I think it is a beautiful name because all the Gabriela’s I know have been very kind and loyal. A thumbs up to this name!
Gabriela is also Latvian, as a feminine form of Gabriels.

My name is Gabriela and I love my name it is feminine, pretty, strong, and beautiful.
There are many nicknames for the name Gabriela,
Gabi, Gabby, Gabs, Gaby, Gabe, etc.

I love the Spanish pronunciation of the name. Also the Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation. I might name a character in my book Gabriela.
It’s a really nice name! Usually I hear Gabriella but this is nice and original! I don’t know how it would sound on an adult though... sounds a bit more childish.
I have the name Gabriela, not my personal preference but I’ve received many compliments on my name for some reason. I hate the nickname Gabby but most people just resort to calling me that instead so I try to get them to call me Ri or Riella.
I have the name Gabriela, I hate how it’s spelled because many people spell it wrong but I get it because Gabriella is the more traditional way of spelling it! My nickname was Gabby but I disliked it because it meant talkative and stuff like that so people would make jokes, references towards me, etc. I wasn’t talkative either. My sister chose my name when she was like 6 so I dislike the decision that I’m stuck with for the rest of my life. So if you don’t want a label stamped on your child with their name think of how you’d feel.
