What do you think? Like? dislike?

It is a family name but I'm not sure I could use it.

I really like it, it was the name of a character on a British tv show I used to watch.

It's OK. More nickname material for me.

I can't warm to it. There's nothing really wrong with it but I think the D makes it sound much harsher than just Ella.

I really love Dinah and Dahlia. Della is pleasant but feels a bit nickname-ish. Have known Adela/Adellas, is probably why.

Someone recommended me Idella not long ago and I haven't decided how I feel about that, either.

Another one who agrees it's more of a nickname.

I knew a Della growing up. She was a real b*tch.

With that said - I do like it. Also like Adela, Adella and Odelia.

Reminds me of Mortadella.. which is delicious!

Don't love Della though. Adela is pretty though.

I used to play basketball against a woman called Della, the name just never did anything for me.

There was also a basketball referee that was know as 'Della', but that was because his surname was Delahunty.

It's OK, quite like the sound of Del/Dell as a NN.

All the 'Della names' I can think of are really good names, so I would definitely consider a 'bigger' name:

Adela
Adele
Adelaide
Odelia
Delphine/a (Delfine/a)
Philadelphia
Delilah
Delvine/a
Delwen
Delyth
Cordelia
Fidelia

I think Adella as full name then Della as nickname.

I prefer Adela.  I also like Delia, which is what I thought it was when I first glanced at the title.

Ya jossin, right?

I'm guessing you never saw 'All the Rivers Run' (I think that's it) yonks ago with Sigrid Thornton as Philadelphia.  Old-world English grand (via the Greek of course).  The city is new in comparison.

You might be able to find 'All the Rivers Run', quaint Australian series.

I don't like it much except as a nickname to Adella as PP suggested

Loved that miniseries.  Australia had some awesome miniseries in the 80s: The Anzacs, For the Term of his Natural Life, All the Rivers Run, The Harp in the South,The Thorn Birds, My Brother Tom, etc

I'm guessing the city of Philadelphia in the New Testament could stack up better age-wise. wink.gif

I'm from Philadelphia PA. I think it's the "brotherly love" meaning that throws me off picturing it on a girl. But I secretly am storing this info away.  ph34r.gif
