Meaning of the baby name ADELIZA.


ADELIZA.  Another contraction of Adelaide (q.v.), meaning "noble cheer" (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884) or, "noble maiden, shining dew" (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905).  See Adelhilda

No bad Poet was he which wrote to the honour of Adeliza, second wife to King Henry the first, who was daughter to the Duke of Brabant, and sister to Lord Joscelin, of Lovain, from whom the Percies, Earls of Northumberland, descended.

"Anglorum Regina tuos Adeliza decores
    Ipsa referre parans Musa stupore riget.
Quid Diadema tibi pulcherrima? quid tibi gemma?
    Pallet gemma tibi, nec Diadema nitet.
Deme tibi cultus, cultum natura ministrat,
    Non exornari forma beata potest.
Ornamenta cave, nec quicquam luminis inde
    Accipis, illa micant lumine clara tuo;
Non puduit modicus de magnis dicere laudes,
    Nec pudeat dominam te precor effe meam."
(Remains Concerning Britain, Camden, 1870).
