This name was first introduced to the British Isles by Henriette Marie (1606-69), the French princess who married Charles I. She was known to the English as Queen Henrietta Maria.

I think Henrietta IS THE WORST NAME EVER MADE! It's absoloutly horrible and it just gives you the nickname "Hen". It's definitely #1 on my worst names list.

Henrietta is an absolutely beautiful name! I don't see how anyone could hate it. If it didn't sound so old-fashioned, I would seriously consider it for a child.

In the 2005 fim "Red Eye", the title character of Lisa (played by actress Rachel McAdams) bore the middle name of Henrietta.

I love the name Henrietta, only because I was great friends with a girl named Henrietta "Henri" Daniels, and she was the most vivacious, eccentric, devious, energetic girl I ever knew. We'll all miss you Henri.

I believe that Henrietta is the name of the second von Trapp daughter in the movie "Sound of Music".

The second sister was MARTA. Or, if you mean from the oldest to youngest, LOUISA.

Henrietta was in the Sound of Music though but I doubt she was a sister.

Henrietta is a gorgeous name. :) I like it!

Very snooty and pretentious sounding to my ears. Knowing the present cult trend for such names, there will be an increase in little girls saddled with Henrietta, all of whom have my pity.

Henrietta is also the Slovak form.
-- Karcoolka  6/19/2007

This is a very lucky name.

Henrietta is just wonderful and I would love to see it revived.

I quite dislike this name. It sounds ugly, pretentious, and outdated. Henrietta makes me think of angry chickens.

Henrietta is a Goth girl on "South Park".

Personally, I think this is a little bit long, and I prefer the diminutive Harriet, but I really love the nickname for this, which is Hetty. :)
-- walesgal92  6/28/2009
I like it, but I don't think I would name my child this. Overall it's very pretty but I wouldn't want people making chicken noises at it.

This is the name of one of the characters in Yu Aida's manga (Japanese graphic novel/comic) Gunslinger Girl.

My name is Henrietta and it means 'Leader of the household'. Henrietta is abbreviated to Hetty. I love my name and am proud to be named after Henrietta Maria.

Though far from being one of my favorites, I have grown to like this name since I made may comment about it. I like the Dutch nickname Henny for it.
-- bananarama  10/14/2010
It sounds so pretentious, and yet also redneck ish. -etta names only work in Italian and Spanish. Otherwise it just sounds ditzy.
-- Chrila96  12/2/2010
I would use Herta as a nickname (or Hetty).
-- megi99  1/10/2011
Henrietta "Hetty" Lange is the Operations Manager at NCIS in Los Angeles (TV series).

I actually prefer Henrietta to Harriet, but that really isn't saying much, as I dislike both. While I think Harriet is too masculine/macho, Henrietta is too... much.
-- erb816  4/13/2011
"Henrietta" is an irresistibly gorgeous name... furthermore, "Hetty" is a darling, classy nickname. They both possess a golden old-world, cosmopolitan charm that the atrocities of contemporary "kre8tiv" names will never hold. Earlier this evening I was finishing up my purchases at the market and the cashier's nametag said "Hetty." That of course intrigued me, which lead to finding out that her full first is "Henrietta." Simply stunning.

Henrietta Leaver was Miss America 1935.

Henrietta is an all right name. It makes me think of Henrietta aka Hen aka Duck-Face from Four Weddings and a Funeral, but it's quite nice sounding. But I prefer Harriet.

Takes some getting used to, but I think this is a pretty name. Definitely better than Harriet! I think Henri is a cute nickname :)
