  • It is add-eh-lide-ah

    I think it is most popular in the south. I only know the pronunciation due to the song. LOL

  • Two different names, Mom-2-3-Girlz. I know the song you're talking about - it's Adalida.

  • Not to nitpick- but the "uh" is a soft e not a u. E as in Emma not Eve. And the stress is on the first syllable.
