Reply to: Origin of the name "Parsetta" by Dean Sliger
If you do a 'net search, you'll find other variations of the name "Parsetta" or "Parzetta" having been in use in the South during the 19th century, such as: "Parazetta", "Parasetta", "Parisetta", "Parzada", "Parzida" and "Paraseda" (to name a few).

In all likelihood, these are corruptions of the name "Parizada" (or "Perizada"), which was one of many romantic literary names in vogue in the United States during 19th century. The name was used by Persian poets, and means "the fay-born".
