Alternatives to Isabella, Arabella, Annabella

You love the names Isabella, Arabella and Annabella, but you want something…else. Are there any other other 4-syllable -bella names out there?

Yes, many! They don’t have the long history Isabella has–most are modern inventions–but they are being used more and more often nowadays, thanks to Isabella’s newfound popularity.

For more inspiration, here are some -belle names that were used/invented during the early 20th century, according to SSA data. (Parents were as creative with -belle names back then as they are with -bella names today!) I think many of the below would work well with a -bella ending.

Finally, two more names that are so rare, they’ve never appeared on any SSA baby name list (i.e., they’ve been given to fewer than 5 baby girls per year since 1880).

  • Dulcibella. It was spelled Dowsabel or Dousabel in medieval times. The name was also used as a synonym for sweetheart; The World Book Dictionary defines dowsabel/dousabel as “a common name for a rustic sweetheart in old pastoral poems.” So now, of course, we all have to start calling our sweethearts “dowsabels.” :)
  • Harrybelle. It was the name of war nurse Harrybelle Durant Stark (1891-1937), the last official casualty of World War I,
  • Susybelle. It was the name of Shreveport socialite and philanthropist Susybelle Wilkinson Lyons.

Can you think of any other -bella or -belle names? Or, can you invent any? (Let’s see…how about Hannabella? Or Jennabella?)
