- I love this name pronounced adda LINE, not adda-lynn. It's old-fashioned and serious sounding, but not too stuffy.
- Classy as can be, but still not too popular. Also the name of a record label and clothing line by the singer of Green Day which gives it a bit of a rocker kick as well.
- Sweet Adeline! Great song and the nickname Addie is adorable.
- I appreciate its old fashioned, slightly British-y quality and relative obscurity.
Adeline was originally a pet form of Adèle, which comes from a Germanic root meaning "noble."
