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.

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.
