This name is a combination (composed, blended name) of “Anna”, and “Bella” (from the Hebrew “Bella”, a short form of “Isabella, Isabel”, or from the Latin “bellus” which means “beautiful, pretty, kind, lovable, pleasant, cute”. Bella could also derive from the Latin “ămābĭlis”, meaning “lovable, pleasant”. The English variants “amabel and mabel” were common in the middle ages, but fell into disuse after the fifteenth century. The name may have other connections with the name “Arabella”, from the Latin “ōrābilis > ōrābile”, meaning “exorable, invoked”, ancient meaning “answered prayer” or “prayer heard”. The first known case of the name is Orabilis, daughter of Ness of Leuchars, mother of Saer de Quincy, lived in the middle of the twelfth century.
