Perhaps a missed 'a' and it is Ideal? –  knut Dec 3 '11 at 21:13
    
@knut: Is "ideal" a German word? –  user508 Dec 3 '11 at 21:24

I'm afraid it's not possible to answer your question, maybe you can add more details about where have you heard the word or a link to it to get better answers. –  user508 Dec 3 '11 at 21:25

We need more context. "Idel" is a Hebrew name. It's possible that people with that name live in Germany. Or maybe you mean "Igel" or "edel". So many possibilities. –  John Smithers Dec 3 '11 at 21:57

Could also be edel, which means noble or precious. A bit more context would certainly help here. –  Jan Dec 3 '11 at 22:41
