Other Origin(s):French
Meaning:Prophetess, Oracle
Sybille is a feminine name of Greek origin that means “prophetess” or “oracle.” A fitting choice for your bundle of joy, this moniker has links to Ancient Greece and became a relatively popular given name in the Middle Ages. It was a popular choice in the 1800s, particularly in France, before hitting the charts again after featuring in the British drama series Downton Abbey. Sybille derives from the sibyls of Ancient Greece, prophetesses and oracles who supposedly prophesied the coming of Christ. If your little Sybille follows in their footsteps, they might be encouraged to become just as influential!
