Della Thelma Duck/Dumbella Duck.

She was the daughter of Hortense McDuck and Quackmore Duck. According to comics writer Don Rosa, Della was "born" around 1920. Her twin brother is Donald Duck; she is also the mother of Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck.

Question #23968. gotta know again asks:
What is the name of Donald Duck's sister?

Barrow boy answers:

We've seen Donald Duck's nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. But we've never seen their father, who would be Donald's brother. What happened to him? Does he exist?

Actually, he doesn't exist. Donald doesn't have a brother.

He does, however, have a sister, who is the mother of his nephews. The only mention of Donald's sister that we know of is in a 1938 animated short feature entitled "Donald's Nephews". In this cartoon Donald gets a postcard from his sister, whose name is Dumbella. She tells him she will be sending her three darling little children, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, for a visit. Donald's nephews show up, and from that point they become a semi-permanent part of Donald's household.

Donald's sister was Della. Only Donald referred to her as Dumbella... isn't that just like a brother?
