History of the name Adele


The text below is from a series about names published in 1920. For other vintage & retro topics, please visit ClickAmericana.com.

Derived from the Teutonic Adilo, which also is the root of Adelaide, the name is one of the most ancient known to students.

The significance of the name is of the most heroic character and it was a favorite with the ruling house of the various German principalities as far back as the Tenth and Eleventh centuries.

The name in its earliest beginnings was very much the same in form and even spelling as it is today. Adela is probably the widest variation in the course of centuries.

The name was widely adopted in France, as well as in England and Italy under different forms from Adalaida to Adeline.

The jewel associated with persons bearing the name Adele is the turquoise. The turquoise is held to have peculiar properties of protecting the person wearing it from harm and warning them of approaching danger by breaking.

Friday is Adele’s most fortunate day, and her lucky number is six.
