Ide Name Meaning
English: variant of Ida. There is a place called Ide near Exeter in Devon; the etymology is obscure, perhaps from a pre-English river name; it does not seem to be connected with the surname. North German: variant of Ihde. Japanese: ‘sluice’, ‘spillway’; a topographic name for someone who lived near a dam. Variously written, it originated in Echizen and Kaga (now Fukui and Ishikawa prefectures) and is found mostly in eastern Japan.
