Idilia might be a variant of Odilia, but it might also be derived from what we know in English as idyll:

The Spanish equivalent of English idyll is égloga, but the Italian equivalent is idillio, so it is possible that parents thought that this word would sound beautiful on their son (Idilio) or daughter (Idilia). It wouldn't be the first time parents had named their child something that was previously a word only.
