Tried and true, Etel is a graceful girl’s name of English origin and a moniker of honorable mention for your mini-hero. A dashing little diminutive of the Old English name Ethel, derived from the Anglo-Saxon expression æðele, meaning “noble,” Etel is a two-syllable sensation with the power to pack goodness and grace into four lovely letters. And although variants like Ethel and Ethyl have proven themselves the pick of the litter over the past century or so, Etel’s singularity in sound and spelling might have baby shining brighter than the rest!
