Aida Overton Walker (February 14, 1880 – October 11, 1914), also billed as Ada Overton Walker and as "The Queen of the Cakewalk", was an American vaudeville performer, actress, singer, dancer, choreographer, and wife of vaudevillian George Walker. She appeared with her husband and his performing partner Bert Williams, and in groups such as Black Patti's Troubadours. She was also a solo dancer and choreographer for vaudeville shows such as Bob Cole, Joe Jordan, and J. Rosamond Johnson's The Red Moon (1908) and S. H. Dudley's His Honor the Barber (1911). Aida Overton Walker is also well known for her 1912 performance of the "Salome" dance at Hammerstein's Victoria Theatre. This was Aida's response to the national "Salomania" craze of 1907 that spread through the white vaudeville circuit.

Aida is a lovely, melodic name, and the title character of a wonderful opera. I have a friend called Aida, and since she's Palestinian, she uses the Arabic pronunciation - EYE-dah, which I think sounds just as pretty as a-EE-dah.

Aida is feminine in Arabic. It means "to return" and Odeh is the male the version of Aida and it means "the return". Gift is "hadiyyah" and in older Arabic it is "Aaidyah".

It's a pretty name, but seeing as it's not exactly English, it might sound a bit foreign in English-speaking countries and make people assume the bearer has Arabic roots or something. On the other hand, the name Phaedra is not exactly English either, but I don't hold that against it. Somehow this just doesn't strike me as one of those names that are mythological and thus sort of available to anyone. The name Ada would be a more ''naturalized'' choice for English-speakers.

Probably the meaning of "Aida" is connected with the noun "help", because each of the words "aid", "aide", "ayuda" means "help" as a noun, respectively in English, French, Spanish.

It says, under Ayda, that it means 'returning'. There's no reason it should have anything to do with the words for help in Romance languages (and 'aid' was borrowed from French into English), because it is an Arabic name.

I love the sound of this ("ah-EE-da"), but I would absolutely cringe if it got pronounced "Ada" or "Ida". There is something dramatic, musical and womanly about the sound.
