I love it, I only know one and it’s such a lovely name. Depends on surname too though I guess.

It's beautiful. I had an aunt Ada and she was the most lovely, warm and fun person.

To me it just blends into the Ava, Eva, Isla names..basically short names ending in ‘a’ which seem to be the trend now. But nothing wrong with it!

I know one Ada. I like it.

I think it falls into the category of old lady names (Iris, Betty etc) which I love.

I'm a bit sick of all the trend for names like Ada/Ida/Ava tbh. Ada is a perfectly pleasant name but every second kid I encounter these days seems to be named something similar....

I love it. Simple, pretty, good for all ages.

We all have different perceptions of beauty. For me Ada is the name of a downtrodden charwoman from the 1940s.

I would call her Adelaide and Ada for short

I had an Aunt Ada. She was a lovely old lady. So I associate it with good things

One letter off from being Asda. Sorry.. I don't want to be named after a supermarket.

I really like it. Simple, beautiful, strong. I prefer Ida though.

HolyMoly24 · 13/02/2024 17:17

Ooh as PP said, I think I prefer Ida too. It's a bit 'cooler' imo

I like it, I prefer Ada to Ida.

Was my beautiful, kind Nani’s name. Ada Lydia. I would have used it, but it would have been very Younique when I had my DC.

This would have been DSs name if he'd been a girl. Love it, ever since learning about Ada Lovelace.

Great name and immediately reminds me of Ada Lovelace.

You can't be named after something if the original word is different Hmm

It's the new Ella Gracie Ava... There will be more than one in her class, I know two under two. Pretty but not going to be distinctive not that that really matters!

In the primary school I work in, we currently have four girls called Ada/Aida (2 in Y1, 1 in Reception, and 1 in nursery), so it's definitely very popular in some areas. I know that doesn't bother some people, but it's useful in case it does!

It's one of those kind of names where if the bearer is really cool and edgily beautiful the overall impact can be stunning. On an average looking or plain person it's just going to make everything worse. I'd be a horrific Ada. Grin
