It has neer been shortened except for one time when this rather cheeky 9 year old chased me in the school playground and shouted out "Addie" - well even though I was only 8 and three-quarters at the time, I gave him such a telling off. My name is Adele and I spelled it out to him nose - to nose! He never ever called me that name again. Growing up in Scotland the name it had really never been heard of in the 60s."

  • "My name is Adele. I grew up in New Mexico, and when I was little, people always wanted to pronounce it Adela, Adelee, Adelay, Adelaide, etc. They didn't grasp the silent-e concept! But now that I am an adult (actually, from high school on, it was no problem!), I absolutely love my name. It is unique enough, but isn't so difficult that it makes people confused when I introduce myself at parties! Also, now that I am older, I like that Adele sounds sophisticated (rather than "cute/girly"), but it is still feminine." May. 10, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was born in 1956 and was named Adele after my maternal grandmother. I've hated my name my whole life because it sounds like an old lady name and because it was never pronounced correctly. Not one single teacher throughout every grade until graduation, got it right. And then there was always someone singing "the farmer and Adele" I'm am eternally grateful that the "Adele" came along so now when giving my name i can say - like the famous British singer and it's spelled the same way too. I will say that i prefer my name Adele to the alternative first name i would have had if named after my paternal grandmother Josephine! So - I'm okay with my name now."
