Mirabeau is a French male name, as well as a surname, derived from Latin mirabilis meaning “wonderful, marvelous, astonishing, amazing” via mīrus which comes from PIE *sméyros (laughing, smiling) from root word *smey- (to laugh, to be glad); this would make Mirabeau the masculine form of Mirabelle. It’s also possible that Mirabeau could be considered a combination of given names Mira (with several possible origins such as Indian meaning “sea, ocean”; Slavic meaning “peace; world”; or from Latin mirus), and Beau, a French masculine name and word derived from Latin bellus meaning “beautiful”.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European
