    Ada vs Adeline

    We're currently trying to decide between the names
    Adeline Rosalie with Ada as her nn, or just calling her Ada Rosalie.
    I like the idea of a longer name with a nn as our older daughter is Isobel nn Belle, but I'm just not sure which I like the sound of more.
    My husband is equally good with either, Ada honors his German heritage and Adeline is the name of an Elliot Smith song he loves (Sweet Adeline)
    Another option we like is Rosalie Elowen or Rosalie Arwen, but not sure on the flow. Surname is Webster Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated

    I think both are very sweet and it really depends on if you actually will call her Adeline at all or just Ada. Personally, I obviously prefer Ada, having Ada Rosalind on my list.

    Flow-wise, Ada Rosalie sounds better, but then two 3 syllable names never work that well together. It's probably not an option but something like Adeline Willa or Adeline Clara, flows better.

    Jane Matilda Violet & Flora Elisabeth Lucy or Jane Elisabeth Flora / Flora Elisabeth Jane

    Edmund Augustin Hugo

    @Opheliaflora Thank you! I've thought of just doing Adeline Rose but worry Rose seems like a filler middle...

    How about Adeline Rosa, then? Very similar but a lot less popular, especially as a middle name, and with it's -a it adds lightness to Adeline. Might not be your thing but Adeline Rosa Webster "Ada" sounds rather darling to me.

    @opheliaflora I quite like that, actually! Thank you. My husband has a large adoptive family that are Mexican...using Rosa might be a cool way to honor them without using a too exotic name on a very Caucasian child (German+English/Scottish=Pale lol) if you know what I mean. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll add it to my list
