The name Odelia is also in use in Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and in Spanish-speaking countries in South America. The name is quite rare in all of those countries, however - other forms (such as Odilia) are much more common in comparison.

With that said, Odelia is pronounced as o-DAY-lee-ah in Dutch. The Italian and Spanish pronunciation is either o-DE-lyah or o-DEL-yah.

Lastly, even though the Hebrew name Odelia has a vastly different etymology (as was already stated in the previous comments), you might want to know that the name is written as אודליה in Hebrew. [noted -ed]

In Hebrew it means "I will thank god"

It is rather rare in Israel, but exists.
Looks like a combination of the Shakespearean women Ophelia (Hamlet) and Cordelia (King Lear). Gorgeous name.
