Adelia is an elaborated form of Adela, derived from Germanic element adal meaning “noble”.
Adelia is also the name of a genus of flowering plants but it seems to have a different source, coming from Greek meaning “not visible” or “invisible” from Greek elements a (not) and delos (visible) although I can’t attest to the accuracy of that.
