Hello, my name is Gabriella but everyone calls me Bella (never really been a Gabby). Even though the name has Italian origins my roots are firmly planted in South Africa whilst also having ties to Ireland, England and Lithuania. My middle name is Fay/Faye – the spelling varies across my ID documentation – this was my dad’s doing. My parents had not intended to give me a middle name, however my grandmother did not approve. A quick flip through the baby name book, which happened to land on F and my name was given.
