The name Adelina is a girl's name of Spanish, Italian, Slavic origin meaning "noble, nobility". Adelina is ranked #505 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Names That Mean Noble and discussed in our forums with posts like "Names on NB that make you go WOW!".

From the experts:

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. 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'.
