"My name is idella and i think it is such a unique and beautiful name. I'm from California and I have never met any one with my name. I'm always getting compliments on how nice my name is.

"My name is Idella. I was born in the south where the name was quite common in the early 1900s. I was named after my maternal grandmother. She pronouced her name with the long "I" sound as in eye. I pronounce mine w/the short "I" as in Italy or Isabella (it just sounds prettier that way to me). My nick name is Della. I happen to marry a man with the last name Street. So when I tell most people my name is Della Street they usually ask me if I know that Perry Mason's secretary has the same name. It's quite funny.
I really love the name Idella." Nov. 14, 2010:
"I named my daughter Idella after my sister who died of SIDS. My mother got the name from a great Aunt of hers. I always love the name and being the oldest of 5 I am the only one that remembered my little sister. She was the most beautiful baby I had ever seen. I still have her baby picture and I said if I ever had a daughter I would name her Idella. My mother cried when she found out that I did." Oct. 16, 2010:
"My name is Idella. I was named after my mother's friend who was born around 1900. I was born in 1951. I have been told that my name is a very old Southern name. I get called Eye-della and Uh-della. In England I was called Idella with a short "I" like in Isabelle. My last name is Moore and sometimes people have thought my name was I. De L'amore. I had a boyfriend in college who would address letters to "Idle amour" and "Idyll amore". Many people have said my name is beautiful and lyrical, but as I child I wished for name like Jane or Mary."

"My name is Lucy Idella. I was born in 1949 and I was named for my two grandmothers. I have never met another Idella. I was called by this name until second grade and I changed schools and thereafter was called by Lucy. Many people pronouced it "I-dell-er". To be honest, I have really never liked the name. My grandmother was never called by it. She was called by her first name, Callie. It is unique!
