People Are Only Just Discovering How To Pronounce Adele’s Name


One of those celebrities, Adele is only known by her first name because of how well-known she is.

Finding out a celebrity’s complete name can sometimes be a little depressing; Drake, for instance, is actually Aubrey Drake Graham.

Or how about the singer for The Smiths? The impact of Steven Patrick Morrissey is not exactly the same.

The same cannot be true, however, for Adele, whose followers were overjoyed to learn her entire name.

The 34-year-old singer found global success with emotional hits such as ‘Rolling in the Deep’ and ‘Someone Like You’.

It’s hard to remember a time when she wasn’t topping the charts and bagging awards left, right and centre.

But the fact is everyone starts somewhere, and Adele did indeed lead a regular life before she found fame.

It was a time before her mononym was up in lights, which is probably a good thing considering her full title is (drum roll) Adele Laurie Blue Adkins.

Everyone Says My Name Wrong

In an interview with ‘Happy Hour’ Q&A last week, the Grammy-winning artist said her name isn’t pronounced ‘ah-dell’.

Actually, it’s ‘uh-dale’… and I’m sure I’m not the only one feeling like a complete fool for saying it wrong all these years.

Adele revealed that everyone’s been pronouncing her name wrong when ironically, a fan said it correctly on the Q&A.

As you can see, Adele’s surname is the same as her mum’s Penny Adkins, who single-handedly raised the global superstar as she grew up.

Meanwhile, Laurie and Blue are the singer’s middle names.

Although many people already knew this – a simple Google would do – there are still plenty of fans who are only just finding out this fun fact.

I just learned that Adele’s full name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, one Twitter user commented, while another added: “I just learned that Adele’s name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, omg.”

Another added: “When I looked up Adele’s entire name, I discovered that it is “Adele Laurie Blue Adkins.” Why does that seem so utterly accurate?”

A fourth person said, “Just did a Google search on Adele and discovered that her real name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, nice.”

Adele’s fans were ecstatic back in the summer when she and partner Rich Paul moved into a new house. If we do say so ourselves, the house is really stunning.

Taking to Instagram, she shared a slew of images alongside her beau, including the pair cosying up outside the $58 million mansion, which is said to be previously owned by Sylvester Stallone.

Other pictures – captioned ‘time flies’ – show the couple joking around at a burger joint and sitting together at what looks like a baseball game.

Another saw the the sports agent, 40, supporting his girlfriend backstage.

Her followers flocked to the comments section, congratulating the happy couple on moving in together.

“Love looks amazing on you,” wrote one, while another said: “Yes honey, you only deserve the best.”

Paris Hilton even took to the comments, writing: “So happy for you two!”
