Comments for EBBA (1):

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.
