Origin:Greek
Meaning:Prophetess, oracle
Sybella is a melodic girl’s name of Greek origin, meaning “prophetess” or “oracle.” Directly inspired by the sibyls of ancient Hellas, Sybella is a beautifully-woven name that might bring out the little fortune teller in baby. As Greek legend and literature have it, sibyls wielded the all-knowing power of prophecy, and their mystical foretells of what the future held often played a pivotal role in the tales we treasure so dearly. From Apollo to Aeneas and the citizens of ancient Greece, everyone looked to the sibyls for enlightenment on events to come. And with a name like Sybella, those who look to baby may bear that same sense of trust.
