Adelind

Gender: Feminine
Origin: German
Meaning: “noble and tender”

I have seen Adalyn quite a few times in the birth announcements. I don’t know if this is suppose to be a tryndification of Adeline or if its just a smush of Ada and Lynn, but whatever its origins, it may be the next Madelyn. That said, Adelind, a very obscure German female given name, is composed of the ancient Germanic elements adal meaning noble and lind meaning “tender.” Variations include the Italian and Spanish Adelinda. Possible nickname options are of course Addie, Ada, Del and Lindy.
