"I was named after my dad's sister Della. I like my name especially when my southern family calls me by my first and second (middle) name. It's very comforting. I don't like to be called Dell. My aunt Della was always called Dee by her friends. Down south if you have an "a" at the end of your name, people will say it like it has a "y", "i" or "ie" at the end. I think that's why my aunt was called Dee. I don't think I'd want to be called Deli either! Bertha would be Berthy, Martha would be Marthy and so on. There were some children I grew up with who called me Della the Gorilla, but they called my brother Leon the Peon...😂" Nov. 14, 2019:
"i love being named della and i?ve never met another with the same name :)" Jul. 25, 2019:
"Named our first daughter Della in 2016 after my Great Grandmother Mary Della, born 1919. I've come to realize she is a spitfire just like Mawmaw was. I love that it isn't super popular. I grew up with a name that at least 3 people had in my one class and at least 30 per grade level if not more. She may not like it griwing up, but i hope she comes to appreciate the thought and love that came into both her first and middle name." Jun. 25, 2019:
