I think this name sounds much more feminine than masculine. I for one have never even heard of a boy's name ending in "Detta". It also reminds me of "V for Vendetta". So I really don't like this name at all.

I once knew a girl called Rebecca who used Detta as a nickname, because of the way her baby brother said the name ("Re-Detta").

Interesting, but too close to "debt".

Famous bearer: Detta O'Cathain (1938-), an Irish-born politician and businesswoman, previously the director of British Airways, Midland Bank, Tesco and many other companies.

This name could be short for Bernardetta, Bernadette, Benedetta, Odetta, Claudette, Doretta or Danette. (None of which I like.)
