This was the birth name of American children's author Scott O'Dell (1898-1989), who wrote Island of the Blue Dolphins and many other award-winning books. He was born Odell Scott.

Aha, how clever of him!

I prefer this as a girl's name, with an 'a' tacked on the end (you know, Odella).

This is my grandmother's name, but she spells it with an "e" on the end (Odelle) and it's the last syllable that's stressed (O-dell, not o-DELL). Originally it was Odell, but she added the extra "e" to make it look more feminine when she got tired of receiving mail addressed to "Mr. Odell LastName."
