And ofcourse I have to put my Jewish two cents in (oh wait, I have to meet the stereotype and just put one cent in). Ada is a name that is present in many cultures. In the African culture it has something to do with daughter (not sure, just google it ) and in Hebrew Ada means something like beautiful, or something that makes other things beautiful. My aunt was called Ada ... She wasn´t Jewish or African though

 

And what was the name mentioned before... Türksel... is that seriously a name? no right... must be a joke...

Ada is not related to any other name in other languages. Ada means "island" in Turkish.

You would read Ada by stressing the first syllable in English whereas in Turkish both syllables are equal in length the second one is slightly emphatic. Like Uh-´duh.

Here is what I found for the name Ada:

in German it means noble kind, of the noble sort

in Hebrew it means adorment

in African it means eldest daughter

What they are saying is that it doesnt relate to any other language because ADA is the actual turkish noun for island. İt would be like naming you child Apple in America.

yes I agree with you but Ada has been used as a girl´s name since the late 1800´s

I have come across that name in documents I research for genealogy

Nobody said Ada in Turkish was related to other Ada´s  People just mentioned that it was a name present in different cultures and languages as well. And in Dutch the name is pronounced the same as in Turkish, even though it has nothing to do with islands over here (I have no idea what the uh du thing was about {#emotions_dlg.think})

I don´t think Ada was used as Turkish name until recently. It´s probably a copying from the other languages. Yes it has a meaning in Turkish and sounds good as a name.

I think Ada is a good Turkish name to go "international"... if you have international plans for your kid, it might be wise not to give it a name with ç or other "turkish" letters that don´t work well abroad. I guess nowadays you have to keep in mind also what names mean abroad. One of my cousin´s called her daughter Natasja... I think she might get some strange looks if she ever goes to Turkey...

Natasha was formerly an American fantasy. It was the name of the sexy Russian spy of adventure books. Natasha was almost synonymous with the cold, exotic and dangerous but equally desirable female character. Today there are companies promoting Russian brides seeking American husbands; so, there is no need anymore for the book.
