Drop the “M” from Madeline and you get Adeline. A pretty name with many variations—Adelaide, Adalyn, Adalynn, Adelyn—Adeline came from Germany (“adel” means "noble") and is considered the diminutive of Adele, a French name. It was a huge favorite in the beginning of the 20th century but lost fans as the decades passed. At the turn of the century though, it made an astounding comeback as old-fashioned girl names were in vogue again. Simon Helberg from The Big Bang Theory named his daughter Adeline in 2012.
