Arabella

If you love the name Isabella but can’t bear to have your daughter in a class with five other kids with the same name, try Arabella instead. Almost any female name ending in “bella” will remind people of the Latin meaning beautiful. While the name may sound new, it’s fairly common in Britain and actually makes quite a number of appearances in British literature from Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones to Thomas Hardy’s Jude the Obscure to a not so obscure book series called Harry Potter. Sophisticated and elegant, Arabella’s been creeping its way up the US charts, and looks like it’s here to stay.
