Etymology of the name BABELI.
Meaning of the baby name BABELI.


BABELI.  A Swiss form of Barbara (q.v.), meaning "stranger." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

... It lived, however, and prospered against wind and weather, and the savage instincts developed by the creature at a later period were mainly ascribed by Babeli to the fact of her having, from the age of six or eight months old, fed it upon game porridge, game being what she could at all moments best command.  Since his father's death, Waldemar had never inhabited the château more than for two or three months at a time, and young Lyulph, as he was commonly called, had attained to the age of eight years without any greater care being spent upon him than it was in the power of Babeli and Martin the huntsman, her husband, to bestow.  The latter, a simple-minded, gentle-tempered, pious man, stood in awe of the desperate propensities of the young lordling, and yet, whatever better qualities might be hidden in that untutored nature, were called forth by contact with the old Jäger, whereas, between Babeli and her strange nursling there was eternal war, which did not prevent her from loving Lyulph with the love of a she-hyæna for her cub.  To say the truth, scandal had, half a century ago, premised that Babeli was not altogether unconnected by certain ties, with the noble masters of the castle, and there were those who, when they spoke of "Master Martin's shrew" (a name she enjoyed) as belonging to "the times of Sigismond the Long-Toothed," hinted mysteriously at the circumstance of Babeli's mother having been said to rule supreme over Waldemar's grandfather, between the death of his second wife and his marriage with the third. (Falkenburg: A Tale of the Rhine, Murray, v.1, 1851)
