I have found that most other name sites say this is a German name meaning "wealth" only two, Nameberry and an internet news article have Hebrew as the Origin and meaning. Hmmm?

Love it

headintheclouds Says:


Odelia is such a lovely name! It's similar enough to other names I enjoy- Ophelia, Odette, Odessa, Cordelia, Aurelia- that I would just automatically love the sound and spelling of Odelia. The name is lush and girly while also having gravitas, is "heavy" while also having a lively spunky ring to it. Not sure if the more common pronunciation is O-dee-lee-ya or O-deh-lee-ya but I think both are pretty.

I'm not from Japan or a time traveler (that I know of). I think there might have been a glitch in the comment matrix.

Come on, really? If I met a couple people named Rachel that I disliked, does that automatically mean the name as a whole is dumb/offensive? No, of course not. A person's character and morality has very little to do with their name, so it's very odd to me that your issues with Odelia are what they are...
