I think that Your family name is formed by reduplication of the same root *de, like many others: Dida (<*di), Gega (< *ge), Goga (<*go), Doda (*do). Reduplication is very important in Albanian word creation. See, for example: mama, nana, tata, buba, biba, xixa and many many others nouns formed in same way.
I belive that Your surname is linked to any of surnames that contain the syllabe de, like Demush, Demian, or the same one.

you should try research the surname spelled as DEDA.....almost all albanian surnames have their beginning as someone's actual name and to my knowledge this is how it should be spelled it is possible that it changed over the years and a third "D" was added
