Alodia was also the name of a Nubian kingdom, which was established around 350 AD. This was well before the Spanish saint of the same name was born. The kingdom ultimately fell around 1500 AD, which means that it existed during the saint's lifetime and after. It is probably unlikely that there is an etymological connection between their names, but it just goes to show that Alodia was already a name before the saint - albeit a place name.

This name sounds very beautiful. I believe it would be appropriate at all stages of life and there are numerous nick names to choose from. (Al, Alo, Lo, Lodi, Dolly). It gives me a whimsical feel and makes me think of a mermaid.

This name is so pretty! It's a shame you don't hear it that often.

Alodia was a child martyr from the 9th century. She and her sister, Nunilo, were forced into prostitution, then beheaded, for refusing to disavow christianity.
I chose it as my confirmation name when I was 7, but I now wish I'd chosen something less depressing.

I much prefer this to Elodie. It sounds mysterious and has an historical feel to it that I think is really appealing. Plus, it's easy to spell and pronounce.
