Holman Bible Dictionary - Iddo
(ihd' doh) English spelling of four different Hebrew personal names. 1. Name of uncertain meaning. Person with authority in the exilic community during the Persian period to whom Ezra sent messengers to secure Levites to join him in the return to Jerusalem (Ezra 8:17 ). He apparently sent the needed Levites (Ezra 8:19-20 ). 2 . Personal name perhaps meaning, “his praise.” Leader of the eastern half of tribe of Manasseh under David (1 Chronicles 27:21 ). The written Hebrew text uses this name in Ezra 10:43 for a man with a foreign wife, but an early scribal note followed by English translations read Jadau. 3. Name perhaps meaning, “Yahweh adorns Himself.” A prophet whose records the chronicler refers to for more information about Solomon and Jeroboam ( 2 Chronicles 9:29 ), Rehoboam (2 Chronicles 12:15 ), and Abijah (2 Chronicles 13:22 ). The latter indicates he wrote a midrash (NAS, “annotations”), which may indicate a Jewish exposition of Scripture. As early as Josephus, Iddo had been identified with the nameless prophet who spoke against the altar of Bethel in 1 Kings 13:1 . The Hebrew texts spell his name in different ways in the different occurrences. 4. Grandfather of Zechariah, the prophet (Zechariah 1:1 ,Zechariah 1:1,1:7 with different Hebrew spellings). Ezra 5:1 ; Ezra 6:14 put Zechariah as Iddo's son, using “son” to mean descendant, as often in Hebrew. He is included among the priestly families in the early postexilic community ( Nehemiah 12:4 ,Nehemiah 12:4,12:16 ). 5 . Father of Solomon's district supervisor who supplied the royal court provisions for one month a year in the area of Mahanaim (1 Kings 4:14 ). 6 . A Levite (1 Chronicles 6:21 ).
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Iddo
1. 1 Kings 4:14.
2. 1 Chronicles 6:21. ADAIAH in 1 Chronicles 6:41; Ezra 10:39.
3. 1 Chronicles 27:21.
4. Yedoi or Yedo. A "seer" whose "visions against Jeroboam the son of Nebat" contained notices of Solomon's life (2 Chronicles 9:29). His work "concerning genealogies" recorded "acts of Rehoboam" (2 Chronicles 12:15). His "story" or commentary recorded the "acts, ways, and sayings of Abijah" (2 Chronicles 13:22). His writings doubtless are embodied in Chronicles, so far as the Spirit of God saw them suited to form part of the inspired word. Tradition identifies him with the "man of God" who denounced Jeroboam's calf altar at Bethel (1 Kings 13), which 2 Chronicles 9:29 favors; also with Oded which resembles his name (2 Chronicles 15:1).
5. Grandfather of Zechariah (Zechariah 1:1; Zechariah 1:7; Ezra 5:1; Ezra 6:14, "son" here means grandson). Returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel (Nehemiah 12:4; Nehemiah 12:12; Nehemiah 12:16).
6. Chief of those who met at Casiphia to join in the second caravan returning under Ezra (Ezra 8:17; Ezra 8:20) in the reign of Artaxerxes Longimanus, 458 B.C. Iddo was one of the 220 Nethinims who joined in the return.

His band; power; praise
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Iddo
a prophet of the kingdom of Judah, who wrote the actions of Rehoboam's and Abijah's reigns, 2 Chronicles 12:15 . It seems by 2 Chronicles 13:22 , that he had entitled his work, Midrasch, or, "Inquiries." We know nothing particularly concerning the life of this prophet. It is probable that he likewise wrote some prophecies against Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, 2 Chronicles 9:29 , wherein part of Solomon's life was included. Josephus, and many others after him, are of opinion that it was Iddo who was sent to Jeroboam, while he was at Bethel, and was there dedicating an altar to the golden calves; and that it was he who was killed by a lion, 1 Kings 13.

Of which works nothing remains under the names of these prophets.

Thus, different parts of these books might have been penned by Gad, Nathan, Iddo, Shemaiah, &c
