    Adelaide vs. Adalyn?

    Do you prefer Adelaide or Adalyn for a girl? Also, I definitely like the Adelaide spelling best, but I'm not sure about the Adalyn spelling! Which way would you spell it?

    I much prefer Adelaide. It's a strong but feminine name with a history to back it up. It has a lot going for it: vintage charm and majestic connection (Queen of England), a place name and a beautiful nn Adele. Adalyn/Adelyn is VERY trendy in all of its spellings. It's just Madelyn without the "M". Most parents choose it because of the sound. I would avoid it like the plague. I also like Adeline.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I agree that Adelaide is a much more classic choice, but I do not like the nickname Adele, and without a cutesy nickname, it seems like too big of a name for a child to live up to... Im not a huge fan of Addy either. I do like Adelyn, even though it is Madelyn without the M, but you said you liked Adeline, which is just Madeline without the M.
