It might be better to find an actual word or compound from another language
and use that. In those languages you generally don't just put one noun after
another like that to make a compound; plus it's kind of odd to put the
English word "address" with a word of a different language. Unfortunately I
don't know offhand any words of phrases for "address book" in those or other
