I think they should have respected her, her first parents, and her heritage enough to leave her real name alone, frankly.

Never heard of either of them, but I love the name Adelaide! Adalaide is an interesting spelling for it. The full name has a really nice flow. Better than Pilot Inspektor and Daisy-Boo in my world!
How do you pronounce Naleigh? Na-lee or nay-lee? It's a very different style to Adalaide.
EDIT: Wait, I just read that they adopted her - does that mean she had a name beforehand? If she did, I don't think they should have changed it. How old is she? Did they ask her permission?

I did a little digging and apparently this was a domestic adoption, so I would venture to guess that they assumed custody of their daughter at birth, in which case they were probably allowed to name her themselves. Still, they changed their 3-year old adopted Korean daughter's name, so my judgment still stands! (I also have to wonder how much their new daughter's first mother was coerced by the promise of her child having celebrity adoptive parents...)
Changing your adopted child's name: always unethical. Just Say No.
