    I’ve really been crushing on this lately. I’m not sure I’d use it in my sibset since I already have an Allie but I’m just curious your thoughts on it. Is it a name that everyone is going to think you used to name your kid after the singer? I honestly have no clue of one single song Adele sings. I just like her name. :)

    I think, right now, yeah, everyone would assume it’s after the singer. She’s popular, trendy, and she’s only known by her first name. You probably have heard her music, if you listen to the radio, even if you don’t know the songs (I don’t know most of them, but I know her voice. It’s distinct).
    But who can say if she’ll still be a household name in ten years? She’s a pretty well-respected celebrity, so not the worst to share a name with, but I definitely think that, for at least a few years, people will think of her first when they hear the name.
    I do really like the name, though; I think it’s pretty. But I’d only rarely heard it before the singer got popular, so I associate it with her pretty heavily.

    I agree with TheWishingStar. I know another Adele so I think of her first.
    I’ve never been a big fan of the name; the sound of it just doesn’t quite appeal to me for some reason. I have a very hard time picturing it on a little girl.

    My first thought when I saw the name on this thread was ‘ooh thats a really pretty name’. Adele, the singer, did not even come into my head until after I had clicked onto the thread. Adele is VERY popular over here in the UK, however I think its still a very usable name and I would love to meet a little girl named Adele. I actually picture a girl named Adele looking the exact opposite of what the singer looks like. I see her as being a little blond haired girl with a cheeky personality.

    I went to elementary school with a girl named Adele so I will always think of her first.

    TheWishingStar….my radio is always tuned to K-LOVE (Christian radio) so I would never have a chance to hear her on there. ;)

    Adele is lovely! I like it a lot, but I admit, I like other Addy names more (especially Adelia, and Adaya!). I think with Allie it might be too much, but it is lovely. I’ve stopped immediately associating it to the singer, although she’s a pretty great singer, so I suppose it’s not the end of the world. I think some people still would associate it, though. Allie, Lucy, Emma, and Adele would be lovely, though! :)

    i like it. the first time i heard it was actually the chief’s wife on greys anatomy. her name is adele. and i know someone named francesca adele. i think it could be spelled adelle too. it could be associated with the singer but it was a name long before her.
