Miranda and Isabel have been on our sometimes short, sometimes long list now and it's just occurred to me that I rather like Mirabel. I have read that it is an old name but my concern is that it sounds too much like a modern mashup. Does anybody know about its historical usage? I like names with history and I prefer elegant over frilly femininity in names. Mirabel doesn't feel princess-y to me, but I've seen it described that way. What are your impressions of Mirabel and how does it compare to Miranda and Isabel?
The other names on our list: Ivy, Iris, Winifred, Juliet, Diana, Eliza/Elizabeth, Guinevere, Coraline. Current children are Sylvia and Theodore.
