Gender: F Pronunciation: add-ell-EEN-ah Meaning of Adelina: "noble, nobility" Origin of Adelina: Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Slavic variation of Adeline Adelina's Popularity in 2014: #531

Adelina is back in the Top 1000 after an absence of nearly a century, thanks to the meteoric rise of her sister name Adeline -- along with Adelaide, Adele, and Ada. Some parents choose Adelina because they want to get to cute vintage nickname Addie, but others favor it as a slightly more unusual form of this sweet vintage girls' name. Like most variations, this name was on the rise in 2014, rising 87 each year since 2012. A lot of attention was focused on it recently via the women's figure skating gold medal winner at the Sochi winter olympics--Adelina Sotnikova.

While Adeline is usually pronounced in the U.S. with a long i in the last syllable, to rhyme with mine, Adelina is pronounced with the long e sound at the end, as in 'lee-na'.
