Ada is a beauthiful name...It is African name, but it is a biblical name too, meaning "one of nobel sort"

My grandmother's name is Ada...she is the first child to 9 children born in 1937. I never knew what her name meant. I think her name fits her well not to metion she is really the "first daughter" to be born into her family.

The name Ada is mainly for the first born daughters but it can also be used to address any female in the estern part of nigeria. It is short for a lot of names like: Adaaku, Adanma, Adanna, Adaora, Adanne, Adaugo,Adaeze, Adaobi and many more. These names can be given to any female child in the family.

Actually Pat, not really. I am Igbo (and I'm also an Ada) and all the Adaakus, and Adanmas, and Adannes I know are all the FIRST GIRL in their families. Those names that start with Ada are always given to the first daughter in the family.
