I know that I posted this one before but I don't remember how long ago it was. If it was last week, please forgive me. lol

Indicate the original word, the name that's dropped and the final word. All names are three letters long and can be male or female names. The name appears in order within the word and are all consecutive.

-1. drop a name from dutiful to get a band name.
-2. drop a name from a word that goes with eggs or Arnold to get a law
-3. drop a name from a cake topping to get a letter style
-4. drop a name from a marine mollusk or thin cuts to get pig food
-5. drop a name from dormant to get Cleopatra's killer
-6. drop a name from the best possible to get a gemstone
-7. drop a name from a word that goes with party or jewelry to get a dog command
-8. drop a name from a container to get an inmate
-9. drop a name from mold to get enjoyment
-10. drop a name from a worker's hiatus period to get a garden pest

Good answers wave

I'm surprised that an alternate answer was possible on this puzzle but Sondi found one. It isn't my answer but it fits the clue perfectly. My answer was "devo ted"
