  1. Adelaide was not our first choice when choosing our daughter’s name. We love unique names but wanted something classic. I read the name Adelaide when searching for old French names. I fell in love. As I said “Adelaide” out loud, Claire came right after and it was perfect. And that’s how our sweet Adelaide Claire got her name!

  2. I first heard the name in a song that I thought was beautiful and then I kept seeing the name on Pinterest when I was looking for girls names that weren’t very common.

    The only thing I don’t like about the name is that most people say her name wrong when they read it or hear it other than that I absolutely love the name.

    Her nickname is Addie and Addie Cakes (like patty cake from the nursery rhyme)

  3. It is a family name, an excellent role model for her. Have found it is rather difficult for others to understand what her name is when either she or we as her parents say it.

  4. We wanted an ‘old’ name and one that was feminine. We didn’t want it in the Top 100. We also loved that combined with her middle name we could call her Addie Mae.

    A few things we hadn’t considered: while Adelaide isn’t super popular in our region, with all the other Addisons, Adelines, and Such, the nickname Addie is pretty common. Also, for some reason many people think we say “Natalie” instead of “Adelaide”.

  5. As a teenager, I took a silly “What’s Your Old Lady Name?” quiz online. My result was “Adelaide,” a name I had never heard before. I decided that I would name my first car Adelaide. I did just that. I met my husband while that car was still in my life, thus he was aware of my fondness for the name. He also loved the name, as one of his favorite bands (Anberlin) had a song with the namesake. Before we were even married, we had decided that our first daughter would be named Adelaide. How funny is it that we two had a love for this same less-than-usual name?
