"My name is Ada, named after Ada Lovelace (my dad was a tech programme guy). When I lived in a non-English speaking country they'd always pronounce it "ah-dah". it's annoying but honestly, I like how unique it is lol. People always go for names like "Kate" "Caroline" "Jasmine" "Joyce" while i'm here stuck with a three-letter-name each letter pronounced in a different way." Apr. 25, 2021:

"My name is Ada, the result of my Mum being so anti mainstream that she tossed calling me Ava (in 2003) and shoved a D in there, turns out its actually a pretty good name. I will say though, why did teachers feel it necessary to ask me why my name wasn't spelt with an i? Like yeah I'm 7, I know the exact reason I'm missing a (stupid, frick the i) letter" May. 15, 2020:
"Ususally,in Starbucks,whenever they ask for my name,I say " Ada" they always get it wrong somehow, like instead they write " Adah". Also, whenever we have classroom discussions,I always HAVE to correct the teacher, because they always seem to say " Ayda". Nonetheless, I love my name!" Sep. 24, 2018:

"Ada is my mother's name and she was born in the mid-1960's. It's a great name!" Feb. 4, 2009:
"The 5th most unpopular female name in the United Kingdom behind Gertrude in first place on the female endangered list and Ethel in third, but ahead of Norah in sixth place, Olive in seventh place, and Mabel in 10th place. However, Ada is now once more among the top 1,000 American baby girls' names but is still not in the top 800 (at least I don't think so)." Dec. 23, 2008:
"Last popular in the 1900s and sounds fresher today than the nowadays hugely popular Ava. Names usually take FOUR generations to become cool again - at the present time it seems like Tracy, Lisa, and Angela are the "boring" 1970s names while Susan, Linda, Janet, and Carol are the 1950s names which are mentally associated with being "parent" names, and Joyce, Joan, Betty, Eileen, Mavis, and Jean are the 1920s/30s names which "scream old and frumpy". So turning back to the 1900s or even before then would some names of that era sound fresh, new, and interesting again. Okay, there are some names even of THAT era - Gertrude, for instance - which sound rather disgusting, whereas Ada is not much so and, unlike Gertrude, is making a comeback (Hazel and Violet are too). The only problem is that if it continues growing in popularity it may become as popular as Ava is now - but then again, maybe Ada becoming the next "Ava" or "Ashley" may seem as unlikely as Mabel, Hilda, Dorothy, Agnes, Gertrude, and other names not even in the top 1,000 today."
