English, Italian, Portuguese
Derived from the German adelheid meaning “nobility”, Adelaide is one of those names that rings with strength, which is probably what makes it such a classic. Another great reference is the Australian city named after Queen Adelaide, German bride of England’s King William IV. Along with Adelaide, adelheid also inspired more contemporary, similar-sounding names like Adalynn and Addison.
