I was tormented growing up with the name Ida. School mates used to call me Idaho. Most of the girls in my clas have wonderful names like Summer and Sunshine. I was stuck with Ida. To make matters worse I was named after a hard working lady, (as the name means), she was my Grandmother. She was born in the early 1900s. She married my Grandfather who was violent. the name has a very negative, bland, and simple meaning to me. Ida- labor, work. I hate my name! And I was bullied because my name was different. I grew up in California, not many Idas my age around. In fact I heard and still hear, "My (insert grandma, aunt, or great aunt here), was named Ida. My father, not a U.S. Citizen, called me Eeda which sounds prettier. If you name your child Ida Good luck. People still ask me if that's really my name.

My name is Ida and since I was born in Albania it is pronounced Eda, "I" is always pronounced like an "E". I have travelled a lot and have noticed that usually when'they hear my name in the USA they write it Itha or Etha, never quite understood why, I'mean if you have to write it based on what you hear shouldnt it be Eda?! Anyway, I wouldnt change my name for anything, across the years I have progressively identified myself perfectly with the name. It is not that common where I come from and where I currently live (Italy), it makes a good topic for conversation when you travel, be it in Europe or outside, and sure, the "oh my grandmother/aunt/people in the 1900 had that name" is a must in every conversation around the world, but was astonished when I found out that it means "goddess of sacred speech" in Sanskrit and that in nordic mythology it comes from Idunn "goddess of youth" who has an old-fashioned-boring-lady-like name now, suckers?!ahahah i love my name, its so simple you can find it anywhere in the world even'though it never comes across as very common, oh, except in Scandinavia, but if You're a foreigner there, it feels more like home :-D

My baby girl is named Ida, and here in Scandinavia the name origin from Idun (Iýunn)- the norsk goddess of youth.

Still rather uncool and old ladyish in English-speaking cultures and pronounced 'eye-da' - whereas it is now popular in Germany and Scandinavia in the pronounciation 'ee-da'. In Spain, this is a feminine word ('ido' in the masculine) which means "gone" or "departed".

I don't like it. It's my name too. It always amazes how many people cannot figure out how to say it. It is only 3 letters. How can you go wrong?

10/29/2022 5:22:42 AM

My last name is Ida people pronounce it Eda I thought that wa an easy name to pronounce ohwell

Everybody knew me in my school growing up I was the only one with the name IDA RUTH, I also was named after my great Aunt whom raised my father due to his mother dying in 1917 and my mother. I have always loved my name & its uniqueness plus the fact I was not Ida May gave it another individuality. Inter'stingly enough I have always been a thirsty person, as well as a happy hard working person.

I named my daughter Ida. I like that it is unusual, but also very recognizable, and I like that it has an old-fashioned feeling.

My name is Ida. I am scandinavian so its a pretty normal name I guess. I quite like it. however when I'moved to Portugal, to an international school the americans and english speaking tends to say it "Ai-da" which makes me rather mad. Tell them to change it and they do. There are not many here in Portugal with that name, so thats good. Then at least you know who you are talking about rather than saying: Ida who? Ida that or Ida that? -. the Poruguese tend to say it: Itha .. Not cool either.

My name is Ida, and in Albania where I live it is spelled as EDA , so I like "E" is spelled. I like it is short is not very common (the thing I like most, becouse I hate common names) and really gives to me a feeling of stren'th.

8/29/2022 7:45:36 PM

My name is IDA also. People find the name inter'sting sweet and nice but I feel weird when someone calls me IDA. Honestly I don't like the name but I guess its not a bad name after all.

7/20/2022 5:17:06 AM

I know three Idas and all of them love their name. One Ida complains that people pronounce it "Ay-dah", like the'spanish name Ada. Why? We have no idea.

7/17/2022 8:39:36 AM

It's me again. I just forgot to write "Thumbs Up" for Idaaaa =D!

10/20/2021 11:16:12 PM

my name is ida and in grade school i was called idaho and other variations of it. I prefer the'spelling Ayda to Ida

My great grandmother's sister's name was Ida. My mothe's side of the family is of scandinavian lineage. Ida was a common name given in Norway, Sweden and less commonly in the other'scandinavian countries. American I'migrants from the nordic countries in the mid19th and late 19th century names their daughters Ida and perhaps German I'migrants too. My family traces It's first roots in America to Dickson, North Dakota. I am not sure how popular that name is in the Dakotas anymore. The name Ida seems to have a certain antiquated air about it in this day and age. I found out it means "industriousness" which certainly would be apt when describing my grandmother's sister. She was a fine woman.
