Ida is a feminine name of German and Greek origin, meaning "hardworking." In terms of Greek mythology, the name Ida holds much importance. Mount Ida of Crete is said to be the birthplace of Zeus. It was here that the future king of the Gods was nurtured by nymphs before overthrowing the Titans and bringing in a new generation of the Gods. Unlike most myths, Mount Ida is indeed a real place and somewhere tourists can visit as they walk through the ancient Idaean Cave. If you’re a fan of Greek myth and want your child’s name to have an awesome storyline, Ida is a fantastic choice!
