Actually Dido is the name of the singer, Dido Armstrong. Otherwise correct.

In Latin it's pronounced DEE-do.

It's also DIE-do.

I am so sorry, but to me Dido sounds way too much like dildo. When the kid gets older, they won't be able to escape it.

Dido is the plucky heroine of several books in the Wolves Chronicles by Joan Aiken, starting with Black Hearts in Battersea.

Too close to "dodo" to me. As for the Phoenician queen, her other name Elissa is SO much prettier!

The name has a bit of a child-like sound to it that makes me doubt it's going to suit most adults. Plus, the name only mkaes me think of the singer, whose music is rather dull and radio-friendly.

It's too close to a certain sex toy.

I love this name, but I wouldn't use it because it sounds like "dydoe", which is a type of male genital piercing.

I always think of the "Thank You" singer when I heard this name. I think she's a nice singer and all, but I wouldn't name my girl this. I'm worried that she would be made fun of and of course they might accidentally put an "L" in it (Which is a terrible thing to do). It does have interesting history though, which is cool.

Dido is also the Spanish word for finger, I believe. DEE-doh.
-- Riddy Rose  8/11/2009
The Spanish word for finger is actually "dedo" so the association wouldn't be there for Spanish speakers.

Like "Dido".

PERSON 1: "I think we should see Aliens."
PERSON 2: Dido.

It also sounds like dildo, and dodo. There is just too much wrong with this name.
