Stemming from my name:
Adella-jello (I went through a jello loving phase)
Not related to my name:
Little Dancer Girl (Levi and Casey were amused by my love of dancing)
Sarah (A couple of kids in summer school decided they couldn't say my name so they call me that, to this day.)
Lucy (Inside joke; *edit* at WheresMyAngels' request, the joke behind that name is this kid I used to date called me Lucy and I called him Ricky. I think it started because he was always telling me that I had some "splainin to do.")
*edit* Family nicknames
Ah-jelly (My sister calls me this)
Abigail (My dad calls me this, kinda rhymes with Adiel)
Adielita (My mom calls me this)
Now I come to the reason for this little chat about nicknames...
Last night at panty heaven, a girl I work with had a fun little conversation starting with how to say my name.
Clever Coworker: "Adele, right?"
Me: "No, Add-yell."
Clever Coworker: "Oh... Where'd you get that name anyway?"
Me: "My mom found it in a baby book, its hebrew, it means 'ornament of the lord'"
Clever Coworker: "Oh! Ornament! I know what I'll call you; Orny!"
Oh boy, I couldn't be more thrilled.
I think this one wins the award for best nickname ever.
