My neighbor's daughter's middle name is Adelyn. Her first name is Kyleigh. I think it's really cute.

I love this name, especially the English pronunciation. It's a wonderful alternative to the masculine and overused Addison.
-- Katesy  12/29/2006
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.

This is my name, so I have a particular partiality to it. :D

A famous bearer is Adeline La Franchise from the movie Fanfan la Tulipe. She was played by Gina Lollobrigida.

I really love this name. Given its nickname possibilities, I think it would suit a woman throughout her life.

It's a pretty name, but I know an absolutely HORRIBLE girl named Adeline so I could never think of using it.

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.
-- wordybookworm  12/28/2007
Lovely and beautiful name!
-- Anonymous User  2/21/2008
The pronunciation of Adeline in French should be a-de-LEEN, rather than a-du-LEEN, as the "e" is between two consonants.

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!

Adeline is very beautiful, but I feel that Adelaide is gentler.

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.

One of my favorite names! I pronounce it "ah-deh-lien."
-- ningyorose  3/29/2009
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.
-- vomiting  6/4/2009
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. ☺
-- baileymarissa  8/19/2009
In French, the pronunciation of Adeline is the same as in English ~ a-də-LEEN.
-- shotgun_wedding  3/12/2010
Adeline is just too similar to Madeline. It sounds like your saying 'Add a line' - which makes it awkward to say.
-- starz26  3/30/2010
The English pronunciation (AD-ə-lien) should be added to the main page by the webmaster ASAP. [noted -ed]
-- JJSkeete  7/29/2010
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.

Love Adeline, hate Adelynn or some other obnoxious respelling.
-- Chrila96  3/1/2011
It's not my favorite name, but it is somewhat nice.
-- MyFartsSmellGood  7/1/2011
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.
-- GibsonGirl  8/14/2011
Reminds me of the Elliott Smith song.

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.
-- jeannie.  3/9/2012
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.
-- michelle.ramirez  4/25/2012
No thanks. It sounds super long, and its really just Madeline with out the M. I much prefer Madeline.
-- Anonymous User  2/9/2013
Kinda weird. I'd suggest just going with Madeline. This sounds like "add a line" and it could easily be mispronounced.
-- Anonymous User  6/8/2013
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.
-- Francesca  7/29/2013
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 :)
