Naming your new baby girl Adela is a sweet way to honor any Adelaides in your life and its meaning, "noble", makes it all the sweeter. It's an old-school name that's slowly gaining popularity, which could well be due to a certain English singer with a similar sounding name. Adela comes from the same Germanic root—adal—as the name Adele, so baby can feel like a star but use this subtle difference to stand on their own two feet.
