Etymology & Historical Origin - Daniella

Daniella is a Latinate feminine form of the male name Daniel. The name Daniel comes from the Hebrew word “daniy'el” which translates to “God is my judge.” The name comes from the Hebrew Bible and Old Testament – he is a prophet whose story is told in the Book of Daniel. Daniel was a Jewish slave in the city of Babylon to the Assyrian king Nebuchadnezzar about 600 years before Christ. Daniel gains favor with the king through his ability to interpret dreams. He is later thrown into a lion’s den by his enemies, only to be saved by an angel of God who held the lions’ mouths shut to prevent Daniel’s death. This particular Biblical story became popular in the Middle Ages and was often depicted in “miracle plays” which gave the name further prominence. Daniella (with two “L”s) tends to be the preferred spelling among English speaking nations, while the Spanish and Italians use Daniela, and the French use the two-syllable Danielle.
