It has a pretty look to it, and it’s a good middle name.

This is feminine? Ugly name!

Gosh, this name is ugly.

I think this name is pretty and all, but it reminds me of a funeral. It's nice as a middle name, though.

Even though it sounds like sorry or sorrow, it's still very unique and unheard of.

Can also be a male name.

My name is Sorrel. My parents named me after my great grandpa for his red hair and the red color of the horse. I love the name and have always loved answering questions about it.

I named my daughter Sorrel in May of 1971 after the color of the horse. I thought it was a beautiful name then, and I think it's a beautiful name now! And I never realized characters in books and others are named Sorrel.

This is the name of Manon's Third in Sarah J Maas's 'Throne of Glass' series.

Sorrell is actually my name, no joke it is honestly my first name. I was named after an Anglo Saxon priestess way back when because my mother liked the name. I pronounce it So-rul where as others say So-rell. There's no right or wrong way in regards to pronouncing or spelling. (Dad added an L due to being hungover the day he registered me). Kids these days are being named after all sorts, so why not go for something different yet with flare =)

I don't think the "sour" meaning really matters, the name itself doesn't sound sour at all. I think it's a pretty name and I quite like it. I grew up with a friend name Sorrel so it never really stood out as an unusual name to me.

I do like it pronounced 'Sore-awl'. It is a common surname too.

Sorel Bliss (usually with one r, but I've seen transcripts with the name as Sorrel or Sorrell), is the name of a character in Sir Noel Coward's 1925 play 'Hay Fever'.

Looks like "sorry". And Canadians pronounce sorry just like this, "SOR-ee".

Sorrel is a pretty neat name, but it sounds more masculine than feminine to me.

I wouldn't want to name my kid something that meant "sour" and sounded like "sore."

Gorgeous name! Love it to death. Perfect! Sorrel stands for:

Sorrel doesn't sound like it ought to be a person's name. I generally don't think it's a good idea to name children after herbs (Rosemary being an exception, as Rose and Mary are given as names often). Sorrel sounds like a great name for a rabbit, though.

I think this is a really interesting name; I like the way it sounds, if not its meaning. But, lemons are sour and I like them.

In Cornelia Funke's book "Dragon Rider", Sorrel was an irritable brownie (which is a cat-like creature) who lived with the dragon, Firedrake.

This is a difficult one. Some sources relate it to the plant, others relate it to a French origin with two 'l's meaning 'reddish-brown'. I was more or less nicknamed it after my great grandmother as a Yiddish derivative of Sarah.
