Thoughts on Adelina Raine?

Adelina would be first name, Raine (pronounced Rain) would be the middle name. Last name is Martinez. Thoughts?

Love it

To me it sounds like chemical fallout, sorry! You have a lovely last name.

Schmeeeee · 08/11/2022 19:25

Sorry OP. I think it's terrible and when I glance at it I just see Adrenaline Confused

MollieMarie · 08/11/2022 19:28

Presumably it won't be hyphenated so it wont be Adelina-Raine?

allypike · 08/11/2022 19:29

@MollieMarie No it will not be 😊 Raine will strictly be the middle name

Adel-eye-na or Adel-ee-na?

Either way the two together sound a bit pretentious.

allypike · 08/11/2022 19:35

@KnickerlessParsons it would be Adel-ee-na

It’s a proper ‘trying too hard and badly failing’ name🙄

TabithaTittlemouse · 08/11/2022 19:38

I prefer Adeline and I’m not keen on Raine.

@kitcat15 your comment seems a bit rude given I was just asking for thoughts, but what makes you say so?

I think it is lovely op.

Spanielsarepainless · 08/11/2022 19:50

Too many a,e,i,n and r.

fruitbrewhaha · 08/11/2022 20:12

I know a Reine, but not Raine. Not a fan of Adelina tbh. Sounds a bit clunky somehow

Underhisi · 09/11/2022 07:19

I think a longer name would better in the middle so I wouldn't use Raine unless it was a family name. Eg Frances, Sophie.

Chomolungma · 09/11/2022 07:20

I really like it.

Chomolungma · 09/11/2022 07:22

I disagree with needing a long name in the middle. You have a lot of syllables in the first and last names - middle name should be short.

Theydoyaknow · 09/11/2022 07:24

I think its a bit pretentious to be honest.

MarigoldMoonStone · 09/11/2022 07:26

I like Raine, Adelina not so much x

RambamThankyouMam · 09/11/2022 07:38

This is clearly the new Ria Alannah King.

MrsMop1964 · 09/11/2022 07:39

Raine puts me in mind of Raine Spencer who was referred to as 'Acid Raine'. Adelina makes me think of barbershop quartets singing 'Sweet Adeline;
However Adelina Ramirez (assuming the midde name won't be spoken when adressing the child seems fine. It could get shortened to Lina (which would also work for me.)

FayCarew · 09/11/2022 08:56

i don't like Adelina. I don't like Adele and the ina makes the name too long.
Raine is a bit too much like rain, but it's not too bad.
Surname is nice

Harebrain · 09/11/2022 09:00

I’ve only ever met one Adelina and she was lovely, so I say “go for it”. 😄

Billslills · 09/11/2022 12:13

I love it! Adelina Martinez sounds great.

Luredbyapomegranate · 09/11/2022 20:59

It makes me think of one of those slightly evil looking china baby dolls. Sorry OP. Adelaide, Adeline and Adela are all nice though

I don’t like Raine and think it’s naff.. it’s a bit like calling your daughter Queenie

She’s giving you her thoughts liked you asked for..

I guess the PP means that Adelina is an unusual and slightly over-frilled form of the name, and Raine is a kooky full stop.
