Another possible origin of this name I've seen is that it comes from the shrine of Loreto in Italy and has nothing to do with Lauretta. I'm not sure what to believe.

This is one of those old-fashioned names that make me picture some naive, rather dumb country girl in the 1950s.

It's a pretty name. However, it sounds low-class, considering that it's the name of "coal miner's daughter" Loretta Lynn, and also because I always see it as the name of trashy women in books and movies.

"Sweet Loretta Modern thought she was a woman, but she was another man
All the girls around her said "She's got it coming."
But she gets it while she can
Get back, get back, get back to where you once belonged
Get back Loretta!" - "Get Back" by Paul McCartney

Amusingly, John Lennon made up this variant of the lyrics:
"Sweet Loretta Modern thought she was a cleaner, but she was a frying pan!"

I've never heard of anyone with this name besides the song.
