Comments and insights on the name Drusilla: | Edit

My middle name is Druzilla, which happened because my mother misspelled my name on my birth certificate. Drusilla means "she who strengthens".

Drusilla was my grandmother's middle name, and her mother's first name before her, and her mother's middle name before her, and goes back in our family for over 250 years. I also gave my daughter the middle name of Drusilla, I think it's a strong and beautiful name.

However, growing up, especially because of the misspelling, my brother told the kids at school to call me Godzilla and it stuck for a long time. So, if you name your daughter Drusilla, please, don't spell it wrong!

Personal experiences with the name Drusilla: | Edit

I knew a woman named Drusilla for a few years, she was very beautiful but often attributed her unpopularity to her name. It is a very strange name, uncommon, and not flattering.
