What's in
a name

Ade-what? No, we didn't just add an 'e' to Adele to piggyback on the singer/songwriters much-anticipated upcoming album, rumored to be released later this year. We were actually inspired by a very cute penguin, the Adélie penguin ↗, named after Adèle Dumont d'Urville, the wife of French explorer Jules Dumont d'Urville who first discovered this penguin in 1840.


Not to be mistaken with a different species: the more highbrow Humboldt Penguins ↗.


The tuxedo-wearing, somewhat feisty little penguins take to the rocky Antarctic coastline during the spring breeding season, where they live in large communities called colonies. Here, they build nests to rear their young; both sexes work in tandem, each leaving for 12-day shifts to eat while the other protects and incubates the eggs in sub-zero Antarctic conditions. Once the chicks are about three weeks old, their parents return to the sea to hunt and the young offspring huddle in groups for warmth and safety.


We, too, think it's important to huddle with the people who matter most to us. That's why we created Adelee, to stay in touch with just our inner circle of friends and family.


Oh, and Pingu was already taken ;)
