I love this name, but obviously I'm biased.
My mom picked it because she didn't know anyone named it. So far I've only met one, an older teenager.

In Spanish it’s pronounced ah-dree-on-uh. I live in Arizona and that’s the standard pronunciation here but it changes based on location. There isn’t a right or wrong way to pronounce this name, it comes down to preference and culture
