Although both are really pretty, I prefer Gabriella. I think because I like the femininity of it and how it's a little bit further away in pron. from Gabriel. Also, it's my SIL's name. Beautiful!

I prefer Gabrielle, it's pretty and feminine while I think Gabriella over does it a bit

I don't really like either one. Its probably b/c I dont' like the nickname Gabby and that's what every Gabrielle I've ever known has gone by.

Gabrielle.


Gabriella is kinda too much to say really quick, and you'd probably always shorten it anyways, and I really hate the nns Gaby or Gabe

Gabriella as a first name, I'm a little biased though. Gabrielle is better as a middle name in my opinion.

Apart from me, I use Gabi.

Neither are my style but out of the two, I like Gabriella. I don't know why exactly...I don't like the way Gabrielle sounds.
