Eek.  I think a one syllable name is all that works to me.  And I can only think of the common ones.  Adelaide is a big name for a lil girl.  I kinda hope you choose Gemma (which I think would sound really nice with Adelaide as a middle name).  I am sorry this was totally unhelpful.

What are your respective grandmothers’ names?

Edit: I think to follow Adelaide you need a name that starts with a stop consonant.  I think starting with a vowel doesn’t flow right.

It’s not helpful, but I love the way Adelaide Evangeline sounds.  I was thinking Elisabeth, but that doesn’t even compare.

What about Eliora? I think a longer middle name has a nice ring to it

I think that long (with many syllables) of a first name calls for a shorter middle name to balance it out.  Otherwise it is just too much of a mouthful, IMO.

I’ve always liked the name Adeline and thought it would go well with Marie.  What do you think of Adelaide Marie?

I like Adelaide Evangeline or Elizabeth a lot. 

I would consider how long your last name is before giving her two long names, especially if her surname is long. 3 names with 3 syllables is a mouthful for an adult, let alone a kindergartener.

I also think Gemma Adelaide would be really pretty!  Then you don’t have to choose between girl’s names!

Ok this is totally dorky but since I can only think of Guys and Dolls when I hear Adelaide what about Adelaide Vivian or Adelaide Vivienne?

why can’t you use Adelaide Cheryl Jynette? It’s the one that means something to you guys. oh and when she’s little she can be Addy, so I wouldn’t worry about it being a big girl name. although when i hear that name i think of Adelaide from Guys & Dolls who was more child like anyways.
