Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Odell, a place in Bedfordshire, which derives from Old English wād ‘woad’ (a plant collected for the blue dye that could be obtained from it) + hyll ‘hill’. The spelling O'Dell is not Irish, but a creation by folk etymology, found first among English migrants to Limerick. Compare Waddell . — Note: The population figure published by the US Census Bureau does not distinguish between the surnames O'Dell and Odell .

Altered form of Swedish Odell , as if of Irish origin.
