Adeline or Chelsea
36

CourtWint · 28/07/2022 23:29

Which do you think? Is Chelsea too 80s/90s?

Adeline is lovely, and Addy is a nice nickname. Really don’t like Chelsea.

Chelsea was never a good name. Ever. Any need for that when there are two Chelseas on the thread?

There was a Chelsea in my primary class and she was nice. Very sporty.

I love Adelaide. I like Adeline but the multiple pronounciations would annoy me. I say Ad-el-lynn fwiw.

Unfortunately I hate Addie and would fear it being shortened to that. Therefore I'd choose Chelsea.

Adeline is lovely. I'm a 90s kid and non of the Chelsea's I knew were very nice.

Adelaide even better. I don't think people will struggle with the pronunciation of Adeline, seems straight forward to me. I'd pronounce it ad-ah-line

Adeline sounds like a body part that you would have removed because it made you very nasal.

He had to have his adelines removed.
Chelsea was never a good name. Ever.

Chelsea (or worse Chelsey or other derivatives) feels dated like Courtney, Jade, Jordan or Brittany

Adeline is pretty but I prefer Adela which means noble or serene. Adela of Blois was an early Queen of England so it has royal connections

This thread has made me wanna cry 🤣 yes my name is Chelsea 🤣

I think it's a name of its time, like Carol or Jessica. It's fine on a 30-something but just isn't right for a 2022 baby. Don't feel too bad!

Grin
I haven't seen an overreaction to a name like this in a while. I imagine there was a Chelsea at these pp's school that called them fat one time or something like that.

Just looked up the song and I agree with the pronunciation. I like the song by Avril and the Sequoias

Chelsea is really bad but Adeline isn't great either and she'd have to spell it out a lot.

Adeline, I think.

I actually Chelsea has a really pretty sound and I probably prefer it to Adeline. But it has 90s associations (not particularly positive ones either) and has become dated rather than a classic. Shame. I hope it returns.
