"My middle name is Idell. And I was named after my Grandmothers middle name along with my aunts middle name. I am Gretchen Idell. Whenver someone asks my middle name they ask me that questions again and look at me strangely. I tell them its one of those old family names that get handed down and I was the lucky one." May. 12, 2009:
"Wow! My name is Idell. Believe it or not i did not know there were so many other people who name was Idell. Usually the closet i get to my name is Ida, Adale, or something similar of that sort. That was until i met an elder woman and her name was Idell and spelled and pronounced the same way as mine. I thought that was pretty nice to have that in common with someone who lives in the same small city as me. I was named after my grandmother who has been deceased since i was a little girl. Most of the time people who do not know me pronounce my name as "Idol" or "Edale". And i correct them by telling them no its saying the letter "I" and "Dell" like the computer. They find that humorous how i break it down." Apr. 17, 2009:
"My name is KaSandra after both my aunts Kathrine and Sandra and my middle name is Idell after both my grandmothers Ida and Delphia so I have a double set of combos and I am just happy to see that other people have the same middle name as me. I was beginning to think that I was the only one :)" Sep. 13, 2008:
"My last name is I'Dell. The origin is either Scottish or English, i'd have to ask my dad, but it means "in the valley". Remember the old nursery rhyme "farmer in the dell"?, well it derives from this. So yeah "in the valley" has been shortened down to I'Dell" May. 22, 2008:
"Many people say it is a beautiful name, but no one has ever heard it." Dec. 28, 2006:
"This is my name I was born in 1976. People normall are unable to pronounce it and spell it incorrect also. I love this name it's different but I still can't under stand how hard it is to pronoce I-Dell. You pronounce it as it's spelled. some peole who call themselves Idell spell it Adelle. That is A-Delle not Idell." Oct. 14, 2006:
""I-Dell" is the proper pronunciation. Most people forget the last "L" or try to put an "A" in place of the "I". It is very unique and it comes with very unique personalities. My mother's name was Idell and she was Miss Minnesota in 1953...so beauty went along with her name. I have NEVER met another Idell and kinda hope I never do. It is special to me and my deceased Mom."
