Last month, I wrote about the Iowa Caucus. Before I chose that topic, I was so close to answering a question I have long wondered: What is Adele’s last name?
Admit it, you thought the Iowas Caucus stuff was interesting, but you really want to know about Adele. Me too! So let’s put an end to the wondering and learn some Adele answers.
Wonder Why Wednesday: What is Adele’s last name?
Adele’s full name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins. That is a mouthful, but no matter how you slice it, it is a really cool name. Adele Laurie sounds like an old novelist. Laurie Blue Adkins sounds like a country music star. Blue Adkins sounds like a sad diet.
Adele’s mom, Penny Adkins, was just 18 at the time Adele’s birth. Her father, Mark Evans, left the family when Adele was only 4 years old. So Adele kept her mother’s last name.
There you have it. Mystery solved. We can all sleep better at night.
