Martha is one of those names that I've never liked - all I can picture is an old woman smiling. No emotions, no feelings behind the smile, just a creepy, blank smile. Or a teenager from the 1800's. Marta, on the other hand, is beautiful! Not only does it convey so many different images to my head, but it just sounds so soft, yet strong. I love it. It feels very Italian to me.

Marta Sánchez López is a Spanish vocalist who is often cited as the Queen of Spanish pop. Marta was born in La Coruña. Her father, Antonio Sánchez Camporro, was an Asturian opera singer. She began her musical career with the band Cristal Oskuro, but shortly after she was discovered by Tino Azores, a sound technician for the popular pop/rock group Olé Olé. In 1985, Marta became the band's lead singer replacing Vicky Larraz, which brought her to fame and made her one of the biggest sex symbols of the 1980s in Spain, during a time when the country was easing the traditional rigid moral values of Catholicism.

My name is Marta and I am named after my Hungarian grandmother. I love my name but have had many people spell it with an h.
Martamay  1/29/2016
I think it's a lovely name. I think of either a bright young child or a loving mother. It sounds quite professional too. But with people talking lazily all the time, they might say "Mar-da". Now that would really get on my nerves.

In Sweden, we say and spell it "Märta", which makes quite a different sound. (The Ä is like the A in "and".)

Personally, spelled and pronounced that way, I think it's one of the worst names around, at least in Sweden.
Zanizaila  2/14/2013
Märta and Marta are two different names. Marta is a form of Martha, meaning "lady, mistress". Märta is a short form of Margareta, meaning "pearl". Although Marta has sometimes (in the past) been used as a nickname for Margareta as well.

I like how it's somewhat traditional, but the removal of the h somehow gives it nice emphasis.
