I have a cousin named Adelia, but her name is pronounced: Uh-DEEL-ee-uh, with the emphasis on the second syllable, with a long E sound.

This is a beautiful name.

This is a family name for us, and we always pronounce it "uh-DEEL-ya." Essentially, Delia with an a on the front. It's a lovely name, though, however it is pronounced.

I'm afraid this name could lead to some stupid ''a-DEAL-yah!'' jokes, but it sounds quite pretty.

Pronounced Ah-deh-lyah in Spanish. If no accent mark is present, vowels are combined. The name would be pronounced Ah-deh-lee-ah if it were written Adelía.

My name is Adelia, pronounced Uh-Del-Ee-Uh, and I absolutely love my name!
For the first time reading my name, people often call me Uh-DEEL-Ya or A-DAY-La. But once I tell them how I really pronounce it, they get it! Many, many, people have told me how beautiful my name is and that Adelia is rare without sounding too unique.
PARENTS - Don't be afraid of naming your child something different! Many less common names are gorgeous too, and this name is a great example! :-)
