Having named my daughter Adeline Grace, which is overly popular and only trending upward, has been a constant torment for 5 months. I cannot even say my daughter's name out loud. I am constantly questioned how to pronounce it, and though some say it is pretty, I get a lot of people with guarded reactions. My husband and I end most conversations in argument. Please consider the ramifications of naming your daughter an overly trendy name.

The pronunciation will cause confusion. It. Will. Cause. Confusion. I recommend spelling the name Adaline if you prefer the Add-uh-line spelling, as this is less likely to be pronounced differently. Add-a-leen, Add-a-line, and rarely Add-a-lynn.

I named my daughter this (I felt pressured to give a name after labor, which isn't the best time to finalize a name choice) and at first pronounced it with the "lin" sound, but everyone seemed to pronounce it with the "line," so we changed it. However, I have struggled with the fact I named her this as many seem to have difficulty grasping this name, and many want to shorten it to Addy, which is not preferable to me. I have talked to my husband about legally changing it (she is 5 months), but I am concerned about the drama of changing a name.

What a lovely name. Fits an adult as well as a child. I don't like the other spellings. Adelyn and Adelynn are just ugly to me.

I know an Adeline that sometimes goes by Addy, I think it's really cute!

I love the name, personally. My friend's name is Adeline and she is the sweetest thing ever. It's really fitting and elegant and not over used.

I love the name Adeline/Adaline. I think it is a stunning name that is not very common. I prefer the spelling Adaline like in the movie, Age of Adaline. I like the pronunciation ad-uh-line. I do not care for the pronunciations ad-uh-lin or ad-uh-leen. I think the Adaline spelling would be less likely to cause pronunciation issues.

Beautiful name and not too popular or overused. Fits a baby, child and adult of any age. I prefer the spelling Adeline with the nickname possibilities Della or Elle.

This name can also be spelled Adaline. It is still pronounced the same with this spelling (ADD-a-line). This is also the spelling and pronunciation used by the recent movie, "Age of Adaline."

Adeline means noble and kind. A form of Adele. Addie/Addy is adorable! Ages so beautifully. Oh what a name! You could call her Ellie or Elle if you wanted to also. Ad-uh-line. Gorgeous.

"Sweet Adeline, my Adeline..." One of several good names I first heard on I Love Lucy. ;) (Which would also include Adelaide.) This is a pleasant, melodious sort of name. Considering that I don't much care for names starting with "Mad," I definitely prefer it to Madeline.

Love this name! Especially the connection with Adeline Records (I'm a huge Green Day fan). Also I would pronounce it Ad-a-line.

The name Adeline was in use, though uncommon, until the 1980's in France. It's most popular year so far was 1991, when it was given to 3, 214 baby girls. I adore the French pronunciation but I can't stand the English one. 'Add-a-line' just isn't appealing to me, but 'add-a-leen' is simply gorgeous :)

I would also suggest going with Madeline (or a variant), especially if it is to be used as a firstname. I am not a fan of names that begin with "Ade-", in general... they tend to sound very infantile, soft, insignificant, and produce a somewhat funny sound when said. Adeline is slightly better than Adelaide, though, I suppose.

Kinda weird. I'd suggest just going with Madeline. This sounds like "add a line" and it could easily be mispronounced.

No thanks. It sounds super long, and its really just Madeline with out the M. I much prefer Madeline.

I love this name. It's beautiful, has a pleasant meaning, and I think it would fit all stages of life. If I have a daughter I am definitely going to consider this name. I prefer the French pronunciation over the English one and I like Ada for a nickname.

I could see this name being misheard as Emmeline, which I would think would be more common Adeline, but according to the ranking's apparently not.

I have always liked the name Adeline and would use it, except I can't think of any name to put with it that I like. I think the best way to spell it is definitely ADELINE.

This was my gramma's middle name. She pronounced it AD-A-LINE. But she was named after her Aunt who was a French American so it was probably pronounced AD-A-LEEN by her. Most people I know pronounce it like gramma.

The English pronunciation (AD-ə-lien) should be added to the main page by the webmaster ASAP. [noted -ed]

Adeline is just too similar to Madeline. It sounds like your saying 'Add a line' - which makes it awkward to say.

In French, the pronunciation of Adeline is the same as in English ~ a-də-LEEN.

I like this name. I would pronounce it ADD UH LYN, though. I love name with an "in" sound that end in "ine", like Madeline and Katherine. So pretty! I don't like Adelyn though. Pretty name, lucky little girl that gets this name. ☺

This is more popular than Adele at the moment in America.

Adeline is certainly elegant, but spelt only this way. It's not cute to spell a name incorrectly.

I had never heard this name until a friend from school said she wanted to name her first daughter Adilyn. Now I kind of think it's cute, but I wouldn't use it.

Adeline is my daughter's name! I think it's sweet, and classic. My hubby and I get a lot of, "Oh, what a pretty name", when we introduce her! Her middle name is Mable, and we call her Addy Mae!

The pronunciation of Adeline in French should be a-de-LEEN, rather than a-du-LEEN, as the "e" is between two consonants.

Pretty, sweet. Adeline is classic, so it ages well. It's easy to pronounce, spell, and has a good meaning -- it's the diminutive pet form of a name that comes from the meaning "noble." I really like this name.

I think this name is very nice, a wonderful alternative to the masculine and overly-trendy Addison. I especially fancy the spelling "Addelyn", for some reason.
