- Mabel Meaning
- Medieval feminine form of Amabilis. This spelling and Amabel were common during the Middle Ages, though they became rare after the 15th century. It was revived in the 19th century after the publication of C. M. Yonge's novel 'The Heir of Redclyffe' (1854), which featured a character named Mabel (as well as one named Amabel). Mabel is a variant Amabel. Amabel originates in Latin language and means "adorable". It is ultimately derived from the masculine name Amabilis, a French Saint of Riom. Lately, Amabel has not been very popular as a feminine given name and sounds rather old-fashioned. The usage of Mabel has also declined in the United States.
