Considered old fashioned in Germany, therefore rarely used on babies today.

Considered old fashioned in the Netherlands as well. 'Adel' means 'nobel' (in the sense of nobility), in Dutch.

I believe there is one more alternative spelling - AHLHEID. I found it in an 1842 birth record in Osten, Lower Saxony (at the time, Kingdom of Hannover).
