Adelaide is the English form of a Germanic given name, from Old High German Adalheidis "noble natured".
The modern German form is Adelheid, famously the first name of Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, queen consort to William IV of the United Kingdom, from whom place name Adelaide was derived for many places throughout the former British Empire.
The French form is Adélaïde or Adélaide and a Czech form is Adléta. The name Addie is a diminutive of Adelaide and Heidi is a nickname for Adelheid which became internationally popular on its own as a result of Johanna Spyri's novel Heidi (1880).
