Sibella

Sibella is a variant form of Sibyl meaning “sybil” which originally referred to female oracles or prophetesses who were sent visions by the gods in Greek and Roman legend. The name comes from Ancient Greek sibulla, a word of uncertain origin though it could have originated as a variant of theobule meaning “divine counsel” from Attic Greek.

Origin: Ancient Greek
