Adelheid

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on March 10, 2011

Holy fuck!  Really?  Adel-HEID?!?!

They claim that this is some new age, fancy, bullshit spelling of Adelaide.  Yeah – as if that name is so fucking common that you need to mix shit up a bit so she won’t get confused with all of the other kids in the classroom with that name.

Hey ;D
Adelheid is a German name and has nothing to do with Adelaide.

Lemonjello Redenbacher March 12, 2011 at 1:30 pm

In this case, it has everything to do with Adelaide, as the person using it said it did. In either case, however, it sounds like a name for the by-product of a mule.

Well- whomever was using that name obviously did not know their ass from a hole in the ground. Those two names are not the same nor is adelheid a new made up name. I have had it for 57 years and my mother had it before me as did her mother and her mothers’ mother. It is also very obvious you have no idea how it is pronounced, like most of america. And yes, I am american but also very proud of my heritage and the wonderfully uniqueness of my name. So……bite me

Adelheid is a thousands of years old german/germanic name…*rolleyes*

Well, yes, Adelheid is an old German name, meaning somebody of noble form. The Australian city is named after Adelheid of Saxe-Meiningen, who took the English/French version of the name when she became English queen. Heidi may be derived from any name containing -heid or -heit, lots of these in German and most of them stranger than Adelheid, e.g. Heidrun.

I don’t care if the fucking dinosaurs were naming each other Adelheid – it’s ridiculous.

I love your websit, whenever I want to laugh, I take a look. But in this case, you are absolutely wong. Adelheid was already a german name at the time that America was a agglomeration of stupid criminals who could hardly read or write….

I love the “could hardly read or write” part. Means so much from someone who, in the same paragraph, misspelled “website” and “wrong”, and had at least 4 additional writing errors.

Ahh, and redenbacher(also german) isn’t? Or do you use a popcorn name as a beard so no one knows how ignorant you are?

Please, Lemonjello Redenbacher, would you kindly explain to us why the name “Adelheid” is so ridiculous? It may not be a common name neither in your country nor in Germany (at least not anymore) but that’s certainly not a reason to say it’s a horrible name. I mean, it’s a name. A REAL name. It sounds funny in your ears, but that’s due to the fact that you’ve obviously never come across it. In my German ears it sounds perfectly fine.

Lemonjello Redenbacher June 21, 2011 at 3:27 pm

I sure would! It’s ridiculous because the ears of the kids where an Adelheid would go to school in America – which is where I am and the point of view I am writing from. I’m sure the German kids would make fun of a Rick or Robert or whatever.

Ricarda June 23, 2011 at 1:41 pm

You have a point there, I apologise. Well, English names (or pseudo, fantasy names) are getting more and more common in Germany, especially in the lower class. A Rick or a Robert (in English pronunciation, of course) is pretty harmless in comparison to some other crazy names dimwitted parents come up with.

This is a real name. It’s an old, noble and very proper name. Is the US filled so entirely with uneducated white people that they can’t handle traditional names of other cultures?

@lemmonjello
Robert and Rick (short for Richard) are old german names, as well as Adelheid. Most of the names that are used in the U.S. are of German origin (exception: stupid names like Dustin, Kevin, Lemonjello, Adelaide etc.).

Adelaide July 1, 2012 at 11:18 am

My name is Adelaide and I’ve never met or heard of anyone with the same name. Also I’ve never met anyone I’m not related to that has pronounced it right even if i tell them how to say it.

Heidi January 14, 2013 at 6:04 pm

My full name is Adelheid but I go by Heidi. I’ve always hated my name, I plan to change my full name to Heidi when I grow up. No one can even pronounce Adelheid (everyone thinks it’s another spelling for Adelaide!) and it’s always spelled wrong when I say it. Adlehide, Adellhide, Adlhide, Adelhyde” etc. The only time someone spelled it right was when I was on a vacation in Germany and was at a restaurant and the check said “Adelheid” and I asked to check it and it was spelled right.

It sounds like the fat lady that sings, as in “It’s not over until the fat lady sings” or some sort of terrifying giant viking lady who will crush you with a hug or other sign of affection or brain you with a battle axe without a second thought.

This is not a new name. In the book Heidi by Johanna Spiri this is Heidi’s real name and that of her mother. It’s an old German name.

Jo Swearingen July 28, 2014 at 8:32 am

I know someone who named their daughter Valldys. IMHO, that’s just cruelty, and asking for a rage-filled teenager.

Lemonjello Redenbacher July 28, 2014 at 10:02 am

How the hell do they even pronounce that?

Heidi October 5, 2014 at 9:30 am

Well I don’t put much stock in the opinions of you fools naming your children using last names of lesser known presidents, long defunct occupations like Cooper and towns in Texas. I am an American, but proud of my full name and plan on reverting to it as Heidi is now infamous. I am neither fat or old. True thanks to those of you defending this old and noble name.

Adelheid means royalty in Dutch. If you know the meaning you’d speak differently brainless horseshits

Reply

Lemonjello Redenbacher July 22, 2015 at 11:04 am

I DO know the meaning – and it’s still one of the shittiest names I have ever heard. People of royalty are inbred fucks.

Whether you say it in its english version (Adelaide) or in its germanic origin (Adelheid), it´s a BEAUTIFUL name and I love it.

Its short form is Heidi … is there any other name out there so nice and lovely?

Stop the hate some of you folks, it´s a cute name. If you don´t like it go name your girls after some stupid celebrity …

Adelheidsmum November 12, 2015 at 8:35 am

In my opinion It’s the most beautiful name ever❤️ it’s just a shame people cannot pronounce it well.
My daughter is known as Heidi but is just as proud of her full name.
I am happy that it’s not a fad name that will be plastered around the world by the sheep! It’s a beautiful classy name that has and will stand the test of time.

Check out the show “Heidi” my daughter was so happy to see another girl with the same name and I was even more thrilled about the show to tell you the truth I get so many questions , this is more of a “related” way to explain it to people haha

Adelheid is one of the most beautiful names and so is Heidi.Embrase a differant name.It was meant to be.

Nonsensical post.

Addiemommy April 10, 2016 at 12:10 pm

WOW I pretty appalled at how much judgement there is over a name that isn’t yours or your child’s.
My daughter is a beatiful 4 year old name Adelheid and we call her Addie when we first had her and still in the hospital the lady who visit us because of our Lutheran religion said her cousins name is Adelheid but they called her Heidi I thought it was so cool and a (good) sign about the name I chose. I do have some German heritage and being from America I figured this would be the best way to have her always looking for more when it came to her German history and also just a reminder she is from a rich background and more than just an American…

Well for the past 4 years I felt super insecure about the name and if I saw this posting even a month ago it would have bothered me on a way more intense level , but there is now a show named “Heidi” her proper name is Adelheid and it took me about a year of watching it and happend to watch the right episode where they addessed get as “Adelheid” like my Addie :)

Call me dim witted an idiot or even a copy cat but there is a children story dated back 1881 with the same spelling same name all around. I love my Adelheid and couldn’t see here being named or called anything else.
