This cute little baby girls' name remains as adorable as when the book called Heidi first came out in 1880. A name that's positively bursting with alpine mountaintop freshness, Heidi was originally an affectionate nickname for the name Adelaide, which means 'of noble birth'. In Germany, Heidi can still be a nickname for longer names, but internationally it's recognized as a delightfully pretty and playful name all in its own right.
