Adahlia-(Ah-doll-yuh) When we first selected this name and began telling relatives and friends what we were going to name our daughter they all replied "What?" Why don't you name the baby(thier name selection) As time went on and after our daughter was born (and they had more time to learn how to pronounce and spell it) they all agreed that it was a beautiful name.
- Personal experiences with the name Adahlia
While going thru a name book we came accross the name and liked the way it sounded as a 3 or four sylable name(ah-doll-yuh or ah-doll-lee-yuh) but we wanted to feminize the name by adding the spelling Dahlia which is a flower thus our spelling Adahlia which we pronounce as Ah-doll-yuh.This name is unususal, which is what we wanted as it would set our daughter apart from everyone else.
#2 We called our daughter Adahlia but pronounce it A-DAR-LEE-UH. Its a lovely, lovely name.
