Flowing forth like a sweet exhalation, Abella is a breezy, feminine name of primarily Hebrew origin. Drawn from the Hebrew word hével, meaning "vapor" or "breath," Abella is a variation of its common European spelling, Abel. For many, this jaunty name is a far cry from Cain's ill-fated brother but rather finds a more fitting association with the Catalan word for "bee." Rooted in the Latin noun apis, Abella is often a nickname for a small and sprightly person within Catalonian cultures. In any case, whether a slow riser or a little ball of energy, you can be sure your little Abella will be a breath of fresh air for all who meet them.
