I have been thinking about Violet a lot. I am so sad that it is so damn popular. It really is a very nice name. DH would never go for any of those names though, Ugh.

Adelaide is the name of the town I live in, so in my opinion, no it is dreadful and not really a "baby name" by my books - just like I wouldn't name my kids Dakota, Montanna, London, etc.

it was a persons name before it was the name of your town just FYI :)
means:



Noble kind; of the noble sort"




Additional info:
This name was imported to England by Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, the wife of William IV of Great Britain. She gave her name to the South Australian city of Adelaide. In contemporary literature of the time, Adelaide was frequently used as a name for upper-class, elegant women.



St Adelaide of Italy lived in the tenth century. She was heir to the throne of Italy and married Otto the Great, Holy Roman Emperor. She was made a saint on account of her good deeds towards the poor.



Adelaide of Aquitaine was the wife of French king Hugh Capet, the founder of the Capetian dynasty.
