Elda is an Italian variant of Ilda it's actually my mother's name though for some reason she is legally known in the UK as Ilda, which I don't like but it's still a sweet name.

Personally the Italian variant is a fantastic name to give to a child, it's quite cute as Poppy is to Daisy is it's a unique and interesting quirky name with a lot of history and modern too.

Hilda reminds me of the late Jean Alexander (sinc. UK) known as Hilda Ogden.

This name is popular amongst the 70's plus in the UK and many other countries.

It does not mean of Old age as some have stated on other sites but of a warrior that image in my sometimes feeble mind is of a strong and determined woman that knows her own mind - my mother was really a bit like me.

This name has been used frequently in the USA, from at least 1880 to 1946: the name was at the height of its popularity in 1895, where it ranked at #379. As such, 'English' should also be added to the usage of this name.

Last but not least, a famous bearer of this name was American gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, whose birth name was Elda Furry.

Eld means fire in Swedish. That makes this name extra cool for us who speak Swedish. ^^

This is my Grandmother's name. I'm indifferent to it. Although I think it sounds ethereal. This name can also be translated into Professor Tolkien's Quenya as "of the star."
