Adele and fiance Simon Konecki have named their son Angelo James Konecki despite considering calling him John after the singer's grandfather, insiders have confirmed.

The 24-year-old British singer caused speculation that she and fiancé Simon Konecki, who have kept their child's name a secret since his birth in October, had called their little one Angelo, after Adele was spotted wearing a gold necklace with the moniker on.

Sources close to the star have confirmed their son's middle name is James.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "They've called him Angelo James. What a lovely name.

"They wanted to keep their choice quiet until they were ready, and wearing the necklace suggests she now is. It is only a name."

While the significance of the name Angelo is still not known, the couple were reportedly considering calling him John after the 'Skyfall' hit maker’s grandfather.

The source added: "They were supposedly mulling over John, after Adele's grandfather, though."

Earlier this month, Adele refused to reveal her child's moniker at the Golden Globes, where she made her first official public appearance since giving birth, saying she was "not ready" to reveal the tot’s name.

However, the award-winning singer, who picked up the Best Song prize for the James Bond theme, admitted she refers to her baby boy as "Little Peanut".

When asked the name of her baby, she replied: "It's too personal and intimate. I'm not ready."
