"My daughter is named "Addie" short for Adelaide, which was my grandmother's name. Everyone always tells me how much they love it. Oddly enough, we've recently met another Addie who lives near us (also short for Adelaide) and I've heard of a couple others. This name is still quite unique but might be gaining in popularity (I've read the place names are rising in popularity and Adelaide is a city in Australia). For now, we love that she has a lovely but unusual name (and it's not super trendy and made up like so many names are, but is traditional, not musty)." Oct. 17, 2007:
