Gabrielle is the French feminine form of the Hebrew name, Gavri'el, meaning "God's able-bodied one; hero of God." Gabriel is also the name of an archangel in the Bible. Gabrielle is written out as ガブリエル (Gaburieru) in Japanese. The name Gabrielle was chosen because the name shares the same first letter as the words "ghost" and "groove". However the Japanese found some difficulty with the spelling of her name and thus went with Linze because it was easier and more familiar.
Linze is a variant spelling of the girl's name, Lindsay. It is a common Old English and Scottish name meaning "wetland of Lincoln" or "linden tree by the sea".
The previews for Ushimitsu Monstruo: Linze to Mahō no Rhythm have shown her name as Santa (サンタ) after the developer, Santa Entertainment. The previews for Gabrielle's Ghostly Groove 3D have shown her name as Audrey. Audrey is an Anglo-Saxon name meaning "noble strength". However, it is likely Audrey is a nod to the fictional character, Audrey Fulquard, from the 1960 horror film, The Little Shop of Horrors.
