Drusilla

Drusilla is an English female given name coming from the Roman Drusus which itself derived from the Greek drosos (dew). It has the meaning "fruitful" or "dewy-eyed". As a name appearing in the Bible it was adopted by English speakers in the 17th century. The name has never been very popular in the United States where, according to Social Security Administration records, from 1880 to 1914 its highest ranking of girls' names was 612 out of 1,000 in 1886.[1][2]

  • Variations are Drucilla and Druscilla.
  • Diminutive forms are Dru and Cilla (also more usually the diminutive of Priscilla)
