I agree, my favorite is Lady!
Adelaide is one of my favorite names and it's really so versatile because of its many nickname options. I have to agree, I always thought Lady was darling! I'm not a fan of Addy since it's so popular. My favorite has to be Ada. I think it's just so charming and sophisticated and vintage sounding. Adele and Della are two other favorite options that both give me the same feel as Ada.
My daughter is Adelaide also, only part of the reason I chose that name is because I love "Addie" as a nickname (and I have for about 15 years, when it was relatively unheard of!). I realize it is very popular now due to Addison, but we still call her Addie most of the time. Her other nickname is "Ladie", which I think is so cute too!
Our daughter is also named Adelaide and I have never been a fan of Addie/Addy (although my husband's family loves it and the more they call her by it, the more it is growing on me...) Anyway our favorite nicknames are Laidey or Lailey. I also like Adey (A-dee), but am in the minority in my family.
I love Lady as a nickname for Adelaide, it's by far my favorite!
No way! That's my name!! :) I never thought I'd find it! Although my real name is Eulalia (Yeah, my parents didn't know how to pronounce it), but I've almost never been called anything but Lailey! This is so weird :S

Eulalia is very pretty. My friend is named Eulalia and she goes by Lallie.
I like Lady as a nickname to Adelaide, way more so than the tired Addie/Addy.
Why does every name need a nickname though? Maybe she might prefer to go by Adelaide. My friend Abigail hates to be called Abby, as her parents called her for years. She much prefers Abigail.
