Comments for Alida

Allie, Lili, Lida and Liddy are potential nicknames.
I’m an African-American woman that bears this name. In the forty-four years of my life, I’ve known only 1 other African-American female who has this name and a number of Hispanic women named Alida...so I thought this name was Spanish in origin.
Also Slovene: https://sl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alida
Also Romanian (you'll find numerous bearers on social media).
I was unaware of this site - how interesting it is! My late mother was born Alida Marianne Dehn in Hamburg in 1927. Her mother Alice wanted a similar but not identical name to herself and so adopted Alida. I am now 60 and have never met anyone with this name - until now: My granddaughter has just been named Philippa Alida so the name is perpetuated.
Also Slovak: https://sk.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meniny_na_Slovensku --- name day: December 22
Also Czech (albeit rare): https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alida
More than 99.9 percent of people with the first name Alida are female.
Also Danish.
Hungarian pronunciation: AW-li-daw.
This person I know has this name and the first thing I asked her was what it meant, it sounded so lovely and fairytale like.
I really like this name. It has a nice, feminine sound and looks nice when written.
The German pronunciation is ah-LEE-dah. [noted -ed]
This name is very pretty sounding.
Alida Marroni is the new keyboard/vocalist for the Victory Records band "1997." She replaced former band member, Kerri Mack. They're a pretty good band, I think.

Anyways, I think Alida is a pretty name, and it seems pretty unique.
Alida is also German, English, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Italian, Polish, Czech, Serbian and Croatian form.
Italian actress Alida Valli (May 3, 1921-April 22, 2006), who starred in films such as "The Paradine Case" (1947) and "The Third Man" (1949), was a famous bearer of this name.
Alida is a family name, and my middle name. I love the way it sounds. I pronounce it uh-LIE-duh.
I am from Argentina. Here, Alida isn't a common name, but I know about 4 or 5 more. The pronunciaton of this name here is with accent in first A. I love my name, really. It's beautiful to me!
This is also used in the Netherlands. Pretty name!
The name is used in Sweden (although it's rather uncommon). My great-grandmother was called Alida.
