Meaning:heroine of God
The only thing separating Gabriela from Gabriella is one letter. Like the more popular (at least in the US) Gabriella, the one-L version is a feminine version of Gabriel and means “heroine of God” in Hebrew. This graceful name hit the US baby-name charts in 1965, gaining ground with parents of Latino descent and those who want to tweak a popular name. When actor Alec Baldwin and his wife welcomed a daughter in 2013, they named her Carmen Gabriela.
