I like Hettie or Etta but not so keen on Henrietta..

What else could they be short for?

I have a Hetty - not short for anything!

Etta is georgous, and fine on it's own, IMO. (And I'm not keen on short names such as Harry/Alfie, etc)

have a look at the line below

Etta James (singer of the amazing song "at last") was really called Jamesetta Hawkins.

I have a Hattie [not short for Harriet.]

My (Dutch) grandmother was Hettie, it was short for Henrietta.

Not quite the same but my aunt was Ettie, short for Ethel.

I know a Henrietta nn Henni, really suits her.

Another vote for Etta as a name in it's own right from me - absolutely stunning smile

Reckon etta could be a name by itself - love it!

Rowetta
Rosetta
Loretta
Colette
Annette
Marietta
Paulette
Lisette

...or just Etta.

Hettie short for Hester?

If ds had been a dd he was to be Heather nn Hettie.

I thought Etta was a name anyway - I know a baby Etta, lovely name.
