I was thinking since there is such a thing as b double flat (it is A) there might be a D double minor chord?
Now because 1+1=2 and B double flat = A I'd assume that D double minor also equals some more commonly used phrase.
So is there such a thing as D double minor and what does it equal?

Now D minor flattens the bottom note
-2-
--3 D: DADF#
-1-
---

1--
--3 D minor: DADF
-2-
---

So I'd assume D double minor flattens it again.
---
--3
-2-
---
So what's DADE called?

D sus 2 as you replaced the 3 with a 2

And a minor flattens the 3rd in the chord, not always the "bottom" note, also I would call that the top note since its highest in pitch but that just me

Interesting theory, but no there is no double minor chord.

DADE = Dsus2
shred is gaudy music

Dsus2 - you've suspended the 3rd (F or F#) and replaced it with a 2nd (E)

Edit: you can get diminished chords though - two (or more) minor 3rds stacked on top of each other

double flats are very rarely used and i don't think i've ever seen them in key sigs. also you're comparing an individual note, with a chord. while chords are named by the notes contained in them, it doesn't quite work that way. as everyone else has said, its Dsus2

i see double flats quite a lot in my exam songs. (jazz and classical)
but, no you will not see them in key signatures, just within the song.

off the top of my head a chord with a double flat might be Cb minor: Cb, Ebb, Gb.. then with two double flats.. Cb dim: Cb, Ebb, Gbb.

Of course you could just use B minor... but it really all depends on the context

right right, you kinda reiterated what i was saying. i've never seen a song written in Abb, it's just G.
