I'd probably call it a C#+b9 if anything. It's not really that much of a chord the way it stands. It doesn't have a third, and in all honesty it doesn't sound that great. It's probably best regarded as a passing tone in a progression.

I was in a nu-metal band when I was 15. I hated the top 3 strings (G,B, and E). I wondered why guitars even had them.

it depends on what key your song is written in
the scale that your key is based on has to have a letter from every note in it, so the use the appropriate enharmonic to fullfill that criteria

Just call it D/Db, which means a D chord with a Db as the bass note.

I'd call it an inverted D chord. . .. major 7th by the way. . . .it has the seventh, fifth and the root. . . so D maj 7th in 3rd inversion. . . as for calling the bass note a Db on that, it would have to be a C# because in a scale you aren't supposed to list more than one tone. . . . unless it is more than a 7 tone scale. . . get what I mean?

Notes Db/C# A D

Could be classed as a Dmaj7 (no 3rd) (3rd Inversion)

Or a simpler answer being D5/C#

Or A Majoradd11 (1st Inversion)

EDIT: Would you notate it add11 or add4? Does it matter?

Galvanise, you've been a member just as long as me hahaha.. . . as for your question on if it would be Add 11 or add 4 that is for complex intervals, in this case it would be add 4 because there isn't more than an octave of seperation between the notes.
