Funny that's how I felt! Hubby and I had decided to name our next boy Gabriel after his best friend Gabe, but when baby #3 was on his way, I just suddenly changed my mind, could not picture my little boy as Gabe - and the full version Gabriel just sounded too biblical to me. I don't know, maybe I shouldn't have seen The Prophecy trilogy so many times
I still think it's a perfectly nice name, I just stopped liking it for my child. Maybe move past it and consider others - if you keep coming back to it, keep it on the short list. You don't have to have it all set in stone before the birth - you'll know for sure when you are holdng your baby whether or not the name fits.
Duh, I just remembered ou aren't even expecting, lol. Well I guess you have plenty of time to mull it over then

Oh yeah maybe that's why I turned off it - nope we met after I had Gus. Don't worry this one won't be named that

I like the name Gabriel but I am not crazy about the nn Gabe. I guess I am the opposite of everyone.
