Name Meaning

Originally a nickname from the Old French vocabulary word amabel, amable ‘lovely’ (akin to modern English amiable ‘friendly, good-humoured’). The initial vowel began to be lost as early as the 12th century (the same woman is referred to as both Mabilia and Amabilia in a document of 1185 ), but a short vowel in the resulting first syllable was standard, giving a rhyme with babble, until the 19th century, when people began to pronounce the name to rhyme with table.
