Adelina vs. Adela vs. Adelia

Which would you choose? Also, I hate the overused nickname Addie... do you think Adelina would automatically be called Addie? That’s my main concern with that choice. How would you say Adelia? A-DELL-ee-ah or ADD-uh-lee-ah?

I think Adelina would be called Lina before Addie.
I think Adelia looks more like Add-uh-lee-ah.
Also I don’t like Adela very much.
Adelina is the best one!

I like Adelina. I don’t think she’ll necessarily be called Addie. If you want a short form, Lina could also work. I’d say Adelia as ah-DEE-lee-ah. For ah-DELL-ee-ah, I’d spell it Adellia.

I think if you want a different nickname, then you could offer that. People will default to ADdie otherwise. (But if you choose one, people will usually follow that).

I don’t like Adela - it seems abrupt.

I would pronounce Adelia - A-DAY-lia

How about Adelyn?

Adelyn is much too trendy for me... I like this because they are old fashioned.

My favorite is Adelina, but I prefer Adeline/Adeleine. I think either would be less likely to be shortened. Adelina is my favorite of these choices though!
