be honest, I'm not going to get offended. Just thought it was quite a pretty name. (I like old lady names)

Really love it! Very cool, but not faddy. Great for baby, child and adult.

If you'd had the same great-auntie Greta as me, not so much!

I love this name!! Red magazine fashion editor blogs on Wit today and has a scrummy daughter named Greta zeta, I've always thought it was super cool!

Love it.

I love it. It's not as daddy as some if the other old lady names.

skitter Fri 21-Feb-14 07:36:51

I love it too. Feels both sweet and strong at the same time.

I definitely think it's cute on a baby/toddler, but not sure it sounds particularly attractive on an adult - personally wouldn't describe it as "pretty", in fact it's actually quite harsh sounding to my ear. I know an 8 year old one and it does suit her, but she's very blond and gorgeous looking so she'd probably even make the name Bertha or Gertrude seem attractive! Not so lovely sounding if you're a bit plain and dumpy IMO!

I'm biased as this is my dd1's middle name. I absolutely adore it, I think it's elegant but strong, it's not harsh sounding at all, better than Gertrude! grin It's the short version of Margarethe and a German diminutive of Gretel and means "a Pearl". - According to DH.

Works well for both an adult and a child smile

Love it.

It's elegant and grown up.

Dreya Fri 21-Feb-14 22:52:05

Oh I love Greta. Makes me think of the Sound of Music and Greta Garbo. I agree it sounds elegant. Beautiful name.

Tiredtomybones Fri 21-Feb-14 22:55:23

Love it. I also love Gretchen. I used to share a house with an American Gretchen.

I think it's the cool, unfrilly Scandinavian aspect of it that makes it such a great name for any age, Mrsindecision.
