Meaning:Unused, uncultivated land; Bountiful lord
A form of a centuries-old surname of Old English and Scottish origin, Idell is a lyrical choice favored for girls. This uplifting title likely derives from the place name Idle in Yorkshire, borne by people who came from or lived there. As a topographic name, Idle described an area of unused or uncultivated land, giving Idell a wild and rustic flair. Idell may also be a respelling of the Scottish Ydel or Ithell, meaning “bountiful lord,” lending quite the auspicious undertone to this already eloquent name.
