Proper nounEdit

Adele (plural Adeles)

  1. A female given name from the Germanic languages.
    • 1833, E. Littell, “On Grand Christian Names”, in The New Monthly Magazine, volume 1, page 211:
      The beauty and simplicity of names are altogether arbitrary: Mary and Elizabeth, and Judith, may suit a taste formed on the Puritan model, that is to say, an English and Scottish taste: the French consider Victoire, Adele, Adriane, or any other such “fanciful and romantic” names, quite as simple, and perhaps as beautiful, as Mr. Stuart does Mary and Jane.
