Mabe derives from Mabel, a feminine name of Latin origin meaning "lovable," and one that has shot into the social consciousness again recently. Mabel McVey, known by the mononym Mabel, made her musical breakthrough in 2017 when her single "Finders Keepers" reached number eight on the UK Singles chart. For advice on her newfound fame and how to deal with the pressure, Mabel doesn't have to look far. Her mother, Neneh Mariann Karlsson, better known as Neneh Cherry, reached number three on the very same chart 28 years prior. While Neneh taught us all to "Buffalo Stance," her daughter Mabel can teach baby Mabe to be lovable.
