This name has come up today prompted by 9 year old DS.

It's in the family tree (MIL's mothers middle name)
And we kind of like it and it goes great with out surname.

What's the MN feeling on Adelaide / Adelheid / Heidi ?

Adelaide screams hoity toity Victorian maiden Aunt to me.

Heidi is a bit 70s.

Adelheid - ugly, sounds Wagnerian.

I adore Adelaide, nn Addie.
I don't like Heidi is a nn for Adelaide.
If you want to call her Heidi, call her Heidi!
Adelheid is awful.

I don't like Heide as a ect..

Adelaide is growing on me more and more.
Is the general mn concensus that Adelaide good, heidi bad.

I like Adelaide, but am worried it might be too marmite for 'other people'.

Heidi is a lovely name. I would use it if it weren't my cousins name.

Adelaide is such a beautiful name, absolutely love it.

Adelaide just reminds me of an Australian city, people might think you have connections to that place, nothing wrong with that really, think it would grow on me tbh if I knew someone with the name.

I like Heidi.
