Della was a fairly common name for girls in the decades around the turn of the 20th century but by the 1930s it fell out of popularity and it hasn't been on the top 1000 in the US for quite some time. I always associate this name with the Jazz Age; it just sounds like the name of a flapper girl to me. It sounds both feminine and strong, and I love the meaning of the names it'd derived from. I could seriously consider it for a daughter one day.

I think Della is a lovely and strong name. I know someone who has this name only it's spelled "Delah."

I love this name! It sounds s simple and elegant, and it's quite unique, the only Della I've ever heard of is Della Reese.
Della reminds me of a beautiful young woman with pale skin and dark, questioning eyes, and naturally dark, curly hair. And it ages quite well, too.

This is my mom's middle name. I find it very, very pretty. If I ever have a daughter, her name might be Della.

I like this as a nickname for Delphine or Delphina.

The name Della was given to 172 baby girls born in the US in 2012. I really like this name a lot, it's sweet but mature and very underused. It would be a great alternative to Bella and Ella, which are very trendy at the moment.

The name Della is extemely ugly in my opinion. It's a weird name. The "Dell" part reminds me of the computer company. :/ I think Bella and Ella are prettier names.
