Comments for NADINE:

I don't like Nadine, it sounds too heavy and it's hard to say because of the 2 n's.

In the children's "Arthur" books and videos, Nadine is D.W.'s imaginary friend.

This is my name and I pronounce it nah-din. I always get so frustrated when people say nay-deen or na-deen.

This is the singer Alanis Morissette's middle name: Alanis Nadine Morissette.
-- kanine  3/4/2006
As mentioned before, it is pronounced generally one of three ways: nah-din, nAY-deen, and na-DEEN.

I have always liked this name. The meaning is very nice. It would also make a good middle name.

Nadine is the name of a character in Stephen King's The Stand. The character is a teacher who cares for a little boy she found wandering after a plague has wiped out most of the population. It turns out she is to be the virginal bride of Satan who is meant to have his child, but in a moment of rebellion, she throws herself over the bacony and ruins his plans. Her hair goes from black to white during the course of the book. I love this name -- not just because of the character :)

I think this would make a good middle name. I like it, it's very beautiful.
-- pink_floyd_fan  8/3/2006
I think it's very old fashioned.

My name is Nadine and I feel it is a very independant name. I love my name and feel it is a lovely girls name.

That's not the elaborated form of Nadya, but the short form of Bernardine.
-- lillinparadise  4/1/2007
Nadine has absolutely nothing to do with the name Bernardine. Nadine is the French version of "Nadia," which means hope.

This is my mother's name and she pronounces it Nay-deen. I like it pronounced Nah-deen better.

Nadine is a beautiful name. I do recommened this name to anybody who likes Nadya.

My name is Nadine Jordan I think it is a really nice name. Most people call me Nay-deen because they cannot say it right.
-- 17bro14nad  12/22/2007
I love my name and the fact that so few people have the same name. The only downside is that no one knows how to pronounce it! While I don't like Nay-deen, Nar-deen is even worse.
As it's a French name, I'm going to take the word of a French lady named Nadine who told me my Aussie accent was butchering my name (I tend to say Ni-deen, apparently). She told my quite authoritively that it is pronounced Nah-deen, with the Nah quite soft and emphasis on deen.

This is the name of a lady I know, she pronounces it "nay-DEEN".

My name's Nadine and I think it's a great name. It's not that popular. I am the only girl in my school with this name. I hate it when my teacher calls me nay-deen. It's so annoying.
-- lia  4/7/2008
I love this name, and while I love all the pronunciations it has, my favorite is "nay-DEEN." That's probably just because that was the first way I'd ever heard the name pronounced.
-- Cymry  6/7/2008
I really, really like the name Nadine. I associate it with a lot of things. Yes, it's old-fashioned, but that seems to be the sort of thing I'm into. Nadine is such a pretty name. It reminds me of the character Naminé from Kingdom Hearts. It's a very nice name!
-- Wilted  8/2/2008
I'm an aspiring writer, and the heroine of my first novel is called Nadine. She is a very kind, sensitive, intelligent, caring character. Now whenever I hear the name, I imagine a really nice person like that. Even though a famous pop star has this name, it doesn't seem to have become that common. I hope to use this name for my own daughter one day, if I ever have one.

This name is also quite popular in Northern Ireland.

Nadine means "hope".

Nadine is the name of a character on the Nickelodeon cartoon "Hey Arnold!" Although a minor character, Nadine's primary personality trait is an interest in insects and spiders. She has dark brown skin and blonde hair styled in pigtails to look like spider's legs.
-- JoReia  10/10/2009
One of teachers puts too much emphasis on the 'd'. It sounds like NaDDeen. I hate it!
-- lia  2/14/2010
It's my understanding that the name also has an Irish derivation with the pronunciation being NAYdeen. After 40 years of answering to that, I hope it's right!

Although na-DEEN is the French pronunciation, Nadine is also used in the English-speaking world. The alternate English pronunciation is nay-DEEN.

This is my sister's name and we say it nah DEE nah, although I know that is not the norm and it was adapted from the French name.
-- Trexa  10/17/2010
I think this is one of many girl names that is quite unappreciated in America today. I love it; very cute and mature sounding at the same time (if that makes any sense! Hahaha) It doesn't have any nicknames (at least, that I know of), so I could see a child disliking it growing up, but with time, I think anyone could come to like it. It sounds very sophisticated and feminine, without being annoyingly frilly or soft. Great name!

The name Nadine was given to 138 baby girls born in the US in 2012.

The Spanish version of the name NADINE is NADINA which is also the same in Russian.

I encountered the name Nadine on a television show quite a while back, and while I initially thought it was interesting, the amount of times I heard it said quickly caused it to grow annoying. The sound (Nay-DEEN) became grating and irritating.
-- Francesca  7/4/2014
This is a beautiful name. The "na-DEEN" is the proper French pronunciation and of course, sounds way better than "NAY-deen".
-- LoveHeartKawaii  8/15/2014
Nadine is a character in the show Twin Peaks. She is arguably the most tragic character in the show; her husband never loved her and accidentally shot out her eye. Midway through the series she attempts suicide and wakes up from her coma believing she is 18 years old. She then begins to attend high school and joins the wrestling team.
