Udel is usually a woman's name. I have never seen it as male, although Idel can be. I have only seen Judel, Yudel, and Iudel for Juda or Yehuda.
"While researching names related to an uncle of my late mother I bumped twice in Familysearch.org into Udel BLASZ from Bardejov,Slovakia. Once it was identified as a male born in 1874 and next "he"
married in 1894 with Salomon FINGERHUT from Wisnicza (Nowy Wisnicz) whom I clearly located on JRI-PL. I know that Udel is a nickname of Yehuda. Any ideaS?"
Depends on where, I think. My great-grandfather on my mother's side was named (or the name was transliterated as) "Udel Tevelson [Tawelsoh, Toivelson, etc.]"; name became Hugh Davidson in English. Oy, these names, these names! What a pain!
