This is one of the most hideous names ever.

Nice for a book character or for a film character but I wouldn't dare call my child this name.
-- Cardwitch  3/29/2006
I know a lot of people who don't like this name but I think it's lovely. It has a very dark quality that I appreciate.

It's a nice name, but if I named my kid this I want to just use a nickname like Dru.

I think it's an okay name. There's a character in some comic, called Pibgorn I think (no idea what it's about or who wrote it, sorry), who is a demon I think. Or a fairy. Can't tell.

Drusilla was Caligula's favorite sister. They were supposedly lovers, too.

Drusilla sounds like it would be Dracula's wife's name. No offense to anybody with that name.

I'm not sure, but I think that one of Cinderella's stepsisters was named Drusilla. Or at least in the Disney version.
-- Wunderkind_Princess  11/19/2007
This name is really pretty. I especially like the "Dru" part.

I really like this name now. I used to think it was silly sounding and ugly, but if you think about it, it's beautiful in a dark way, with a cute nickname, Dru, to go with it. Dru-Silla.

It seems to be getting a lot of heat, but I happen to like this name very much--and I even like the "Dru" nickname. And yes, in the Disney version of Cinderella, Drusilla and Anastasia are her sisters.
-- erb816  3/23/2009
To nitpick, actually Cinderella's sister was Drizella. And I happen to like the name Drusilla. It's beautiful, in an odd way.
-- mymymetrocard  5/2/2009
Drizella, really? Oh, what an awful name. Sounds like "drizzle". :-)

But really, I find Drusilla to be a great name.
-- erb816  5/11/2009
It was actually Druzella, which you could probably consider a spelling variation of Drusilla.
-- ragexprincess  8/20/2009
User 'mymymetrocard' is right, Cinderella's ugly sister is called Drizella, not Druzella - according to Wikipedia.

This name has a lovely, elegant, and dark quality about it. It is very eccentric, perfect if you want your fictional character to stand out. But I'd never name my child this, and even if I did, it'd be as a middle name. Oh, and I love the nickname Dru, it's so cute, for some reason.
-- DestructoGirl  5/17/2009
This is a wonderful name which should definitely be used more often! :)
-- walesgal92  4/3/2010
Not a huge fan, but my first thought was that kids would call her "Drool silla".
-- Jamesina  7/7/2010
Very dark and Gothic sounding, but still extremely beautiful. Though, instead of 'Dru', I'd probably shorten it to 'Silla'.

Drusilla Fawley is the great-aunt of the titular Jude Fawley in Thomas Hardy's Jude the Obscure.

I also find this name appealing, especially with nickname "Dru," but there's still an immediate witch connection for me that I think would be hard for a kid to shake.

I read that Emperor Caligula's sister was Julia Drusilla. As Julia is the family name signaling a descendent of Julius Caesar, Julia Drusilla was always mentioned as simply Drusilla as her sisters were Julia Agrippina the Younger and Julia Livilla.
-- ninjato  5/1/2012
I really like this name. I am thinking of using it as a name to change mine to. It really feels like a strong, powerful name for a woman, I think that's why many people don't like it, because it is not all prissy and girly, but I think that's great. I like Dru, too - ready made shortening. Perfect!

Eeewwww. Priscilla is much better.

My name is Drusila and it's hard to live a life where everyone hates your name, because they think it's stupid or ugly.
