It's not very popular at the moment which has drawn me to it more. What are people's opinions on this name?

I think it's gorgeous. But I think people will assume she's named after the singer, but that's certainly not a bad thing

There's an Adele in my dds year 3 class and I love it. I don't like the way it always seems to get shortened to Del though!

I think it's a lovely, sophisticated name.

Lovely. We considered it and also Adeline for DD.

MamaLazarou Wed 13-Jan-16 17:07:21

I think it's lovely. Simple, understated, elegant.

I like it. Also Estelle which I find similar

I like it.

There's also Edel which is very common in Ireland.

SuburbanRhonda Thu 14-Jan-16 15:20:19

I think it looks nicer than it sounds. A Dell.

Adelina is lovely though.

Sunbeam1112 Thu 14-Jan-16 16:14:51

Rookie i don't know really i suppose not many people do like their own names. I would loved to be called rachel or nicola lol

zippyswife Thu 14-Jan-16 17:19:58

Adele and Edel are in my list. I like it. Uncommon but not try hard.

Alisvolatpropiis Thu 14-Jan-16 17:21:44

I was about to say Adele is lovely and unusual without being wacky but clearly an owner of the name thinks otherwise! blush

See, I have a top 5 name that was in the top 5 for about a decade either side of my birth year. There are thousands upon thousands of other "Rookies" around. Although I like my name very much, it would have been nice to have been named something less common as a child and teen.
