Personal experiences with the name Adelaida: | Edit

My daughter's name is Adelaida as she was born in Mexico and we used the spanish version. It is beautiful when pronouned in spanish Ah-day-lie-dah. She goes by Ade, pronounced Ah-Day and she loves it. She is 14, creative, spunky, athletic (a level 7 gymnast) and is very sweet. It is an unusual name that suits her perfectly as an aspiring artist and fits her personality. She has liked having an unusual name and being the only one in school with that name all the way through to 8th grade and on through high school. She also likes Adele, but goes by Ade. I would reccommend Adelaida or Adelaide as I think it is lovely, usual and elegant.
