Meaning: God is my Strength Origin: French
The French name Gabrielle derives directly from the Hebrew name Gabriel, they mean ‘God is my Strength’ or ‘Hero of God’.
Gabrielle can be shortened to Gabby, Brielle or Bree – all quite modern and popular options.
Gabrielle speaks to me as an elegant soul, a dancer or artist. A feminist maybe. It has so much potential, it can feel formal, cute or fresh making it a star choice. It is reminiscent of Isabella, Margaretta and Estelle.
