"Great name. Had a sim with this name a while back." Jun. 19, 2019:
"I named our daughter Adeline Grace, but we pronounced it Adelyn. People were confused with this, so we had to change the pronunciation. However, this name is becoming super uber popular, with 7 variations of the Adeline, Adalynn, Adalyn, Adaline, Adelyn, Addilyn, and Adelynn being in the top 400 of names in 2017 according to Social Security Stats.
I find myself unable to say her name out loud, because it feels like somebody else's name. So I just call her baby girl and sometimes Ada, though that is also becoming trendy. I am not sure what to do as she is 6 months and I am starting to avoid people and have constant fights with my husband over choosing a trendy name." Oct. 19, 2018:
"I am having a daughter and naming her Adelyn Elizabeth. Although the name is growing in popularity, I much prefer this spelling to any of the other variations. It looks classic and clean to me. I think it?s a beautiful name! I also love Adeline but chose Adelyn for pronunciation purposes." Dec. 8, 2017:
"Our daughters name is Adelyn Grace. We chose this spelling despite favouring the traditional spelling because we thought it better that she have to spell it for people than constantly being mispronounced as Adel-line as we favoured Adel-Lin as a pronounciation. Grace is a family name. And I had not seen this combination anywhere else until I read these comments. Our backup was Adelyn Rose - which funnily has appeared here too. Many people have expressed they love her name. We love it and her too." Dec. 7, 2017:
"My daughter born in 2000 was named Adelyn Agnes after both her Grandma's. By the way the grandma with Adelyn name is now 93 :)

"This is my 3 year old daughters name as well (Adelyn Violette) She also gets Addy just as much as Adelyn, I think it's cute either way:)" Aug. 18, 2010:
"My daughter's name is Adelynn Rose. She was born in 2006 and we hadn't heard the name anywhere at that time. Now, it's increasing in popularity :( Some people call her Addie, which I'm not a fan of (just because it's so popular now). We love her full name and chose not to shorten it... although, now she is 4, she's asking to be called Adele :)" Jun. 1, 2010:
