Etta... Love it or hate it?

I enjoy a short sweet girls name… Help me come up with some more?


I think it’s a cool name, and I love the jazzy feel. :slight_smile:

Names that remind me of [name]Etta[/name]:

[name]Henrietta[/name] (too long, I know) :slight_smile:
[name]Juliette[/name] (sorry…I can’t help myself) :slight_smile:
[name]Rosetta[/name] (not short, though)

Have a good night! :slight_smile:

I think it is sweet. also , a fresh alternative to the common, but pretty, name [name]Ella[/name].

I’d have to say that I really don’t like it. I’ve only heard the name on an old lady, so that’s all I can picture. That’s just me though… I did like some of the suggestions one of the other posters suggestes, especially: [name]Cora[/name],[name]Calla[/name], [name]Gemma[/name] and [name]Eva[/name]. I also love the name [name]Annie[/name]!

I do not like [name]Etta[/name]…[name]How[/name] about [name]Ella[/name], [name]Emma[/name], [name]Claire[/name], [name]Grace[/name], [name]Kate[/name] or [name]Paige[/name]?

I love it, although I do debate if it can really stand alone or if it should be nn only. It does have a spunky and jazzy vibe thanks to [name]Etta[/name] [name]James[/name]…but she derived her stage name from her first name [name]Jamesetta[/name].

I love it as a name!

The only problem I foresee would be spelling and explaining.

-“Oh, what’s your little girl’s name?”



—“No, [name]EDD[/name]-A”

-“Oh, [name]Ed[/name]-da? Like [name]Edna[/name] but without the ‘n’?”

—"ET-TA but the t’s sound like d’s, like [name]Etta[/name] [name]James[/name], with two “t’s”

It’s not commonly used as a first name which is great, but thsi also means people won’t hear it for what it is.
If this doesn’t matter to you–and maybe it doesn’t–then it’s a fabulous name.
