In Sweden Ebba was originally a noble name, only used by noble families. Not so anymore, and quite trendy today.

In some Swedish name books it says that this is a female form of the German male name Eberhard, which has the nick name Ebbe. [noted -ed]

Ebba may have gotten some its popularity from the TV series Ebba & Didrik. Didrik never got as trendy, but it was close to unheard of before the show. Ebba on the other hand became a real trend name.

My name is Evlyn, but everyone calls me by my nickname Ebba. I had no idea it was a real name.

Ebba is my name and I love it, I have never met anyone who shares my name. At home I am known as Ebbie which is a pet form of Ebba.

Also a nickname for Elizabeth. My great-grandmother had the name Elizabeth, and we called her Eb for short.

Hmm, this is a very interesting name. I have never heard of it. This is a name that could work for either a character or a real person.
It almost looks like a German form of Emma. I can picture an old, kind woman who grins at you all the time. Or a sweet fair-haired girl. Very sweet and calm.

Despite this name's trendiness in Sweden, I find it to be very pretty and unusual.

I like this name. I find many Germanic names harsh-sounding, but Ebba is very sweet and has a pleasant ring to it. Though Emma sounds a bit more "mature", I prefer Ebba, since it is prettier and in Ireland, it is much less common. Emma has always struck me as being dull and conventional anyway, as I know so many Emmas. Ebba is much more interesting and different. Though it doesn't ruin Ebba for me, I'm not that happy about the whole mutilated face story. :(

This name sounds a bit ditzy and even a little ugly. The spelling, combined with the Scandinavian origin, make me think of ABBA and their hideous music. (I know Abba isn't a name, but this is the closest thing I could find to it.)

It's ok, but to me it sounds like someone with a stuffy nose saying Emma.

Ebba is my middle name. It's also my mom's middle name, and it came from her mom, whose first name is Ebba. Grandma's parents were Swedish immigrants and as has been noted, this name is very popular in Sweden. I never knew anyone else that had the name besides the 3 of us so I'm glad to hear there are others. I used to find it embarrassing because no-one I knew had such a weird middle name, but I have become happier about it as I grew up, embraced my ethnic heritage, and also learned about the two St. Ebbas.

My second daughter is called Ebba. When I initially searched for the meaning, I liked the 'Queen of riches; fortress of riches; strong' meanings that I came across. It is a beautiful name with such a strong meaning. To all the Ebbas, may the name's meaning come true for all of you!
