Lots of little blonde girls are getting this name!

So whenever I have a “name crush” I’ll post it here!

My current one is Ida. In North America it is seemed as old-ladyish, but in Scandinavia it’s quite fashionable, and could slowly make it’s way through the rest of Europe as well. It’s pronounced EE-dah here.

A plus for me is that this name is also Yiddish!

There is an opera called Princess Ida.

In Greek mythology Ida is the mother of Minos, king of Crete and one of the judges of Hades. Ida/Ide is also a nymph and nurse to Zeus.

In Hinduism Ida is the goddess of earth, food, and nourishment (another plus!)

So, what do you think of Ida?
