Adel (also transliterated as Adil, Arabic: عادل‎) is an Arabic male name that is derived from the Arabic word Adl, which means fairness and justice.

It is not to be confused with the similar female name Adele, which has a different pronunciation, although rarely it may appear without the "e" on the end.
