The beast- Anders Roslund & Borge Hellstrom

“She’s called Ida. She knows why, it’s because Marwin was so keen on that book about Emil and Ida. So her Mum and Dad figured her name should be Ida. It’s ugly. She thinks its horrid. Sandra is nice or Isidora. Imagine being called Ida.” (pg 6)

Name for 21st December- Ida

English, German, Scandinavian, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Hungarian, Slovene, Ancient Germanic:

Derived from the Germanic element id meaning “work, labour”. This name was brought to England by the Normans, though it eventually died out there in the Middle Ages. It was strongly revived in the 19th century, in part due to the heroine in Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem ‘The Princess’ (1847), which was later adapted into the play ‘Princess Ida’ (1884) by Gilbert and Sullivan.

Though the etymology is unrelated, this is the name of a mountain on the island of Crete where, according to Greek myth, the god Zeus was born. (Behindthename.com)
