If you have an Adelaide (or know one!) what nicknames does she get? Also, what is her middle name original.gif

My Adelaide has no nicknames that are anything to do with her name - they are silly endearment-type names that she has been called since she was a newborn or toddler.  She has always been called by her full name otherwise.

Her middle name is Clare.

Gorgeous name
Knew one her nn was "Addy/Addie"

Sweet and suitable for all life stages.
I think middle name was Jane 9nod to a grandmother, from memory)

And does it go with Zachary?

My niece is an Adelaide, her parents don't like shortened names so we must call her Adelaide.

Her middle names are Loraine Au-Yeung. This is after both grandmothers.

I think that might be a bit of a mouthful with our surname lol.

I love nicknames & would probably not use Adelaide in its entirety that much (our Zachary is mostly Zac or Zaccy).

We have friends with an Adelaide Louise . She gets "Addie"

I know of a lady called Aidie, pronounced Aaydee.  That could work.

Addie is an obivous one but I'm not a fan. How about Adele, Elle or even Ellie

I know an Adelaide that has the nn Heidi.  It comes from the German version of Adelaide, Adelheid.

Ooh, I like Aidie too.

Heidi is actually an abbreviation of the German version of Adelaide.  Love that one too.

I know an "Ada" short for Adeline.  But I think Ada is quite common now.

I really like the name Adelaide.  Very regal, not common but easily spelled.

Goes well with Zachary I think.

Del

I like Ellie but wasn't sure if it was a bit of a stretch. DH likes Del but it was hated by many on here last time lol

I do like Aidie.

It's also a mouthful with our surname which is 7 letter long.

Addie sounds nice as a nickname. original.gif

Adelaide goes with Zachary.

I like NNs Heidi, Della and Ladie.

I don't know the MN of the Adelaide I know but I like the combo Adelaide Mary.

My dd2 is Adelaide Finlay. Her babyhood nn has been LaiLai. She also gets A, Ads, Addie, and sometimes Laidey.
I love Dell, Della and Heidi as nns, but none of those has stuck.
Finlay is a name smoosh after my parents, Lynn + Fay = Finlay

#17 Madnesscraves

Posted 28 February 2013 - 05:30 PM

my DH suggested Queenie when I asked.

I really like the name, but he won't use it!

#18 somila

I was coming in to say Heidi. original.gif

Nice name!

#20 Runi52

The Adelaide I know gets Laidey or Laids.

#21 Snugglybirdie

#23 Plaxy

I like Adelaide and think it goes well with Zachary.

I think the nns I was going to suggest have all been mentioned:

Adie
Aidy
Ada
Laidy/Ladie
Della
Del
Delly
Dee
Dede
Adele
Delia
Elle
Elly
Heidi

My favourites are Dede (Deedee) or Laidy/Ladie

I like Heidi best, but what about Adel/Adelle?

I like PP's suggestion of Adelaide Clare. My suggestion is Adelaide Edith.

I know an Adelaide who gets Delie.
