I've always thought of Heidi as a full name, probably because of the Heidi book/movie. But I think if you prefer Adelheid and it makes the name somehow more complete, you should go for it. She'll always be called Heidi and I guess Adelheid would just formalize it in your mind.

But I know what you mean about nicknames vs. full names - I like the formal version myself.
