Longer forms could be Esther, Etelvina, Ethel, Ethelberta, Ethelinda and Etheldreda.
I like this name. Rare, quite simple, maybe feels a little bit dry, but it's alright. I think Etta is good name, simple and elegant!
Sounds incomplete.
The first time I ever saw anyone else with my name was in the obituary column of our local paper. It was for a 98 year old Lady from Bryson City, North Carolina. I went to a private school and one of our English class lessons was to read the newspaper daily. This was in the fourth grade, so I was around 9 years old. Saw it again later that year when I read about Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in the Time-Life book The Outlaws. She was the paramour of Harry Longabaugh aka The Sundance Kid. I was fascinated. Of course, I learned, not much later, of Etta James. The first experiences with my name that were of the positive sort. Before that, I most often was made fun of because of my name. Afterwards, meh, water off a ducks back. ROCK ON, Etta's of this world ~
The first thing that comes to my head when I hear Etta is the famous singer Etta James. Other than the fact that Etta is an underappreciated and underrated name, it is a very sweet name that should have a higher ranking in terms of popularity.
In 2018, 68 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Etta who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 1, 574th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
This is such a pretty name! A good alternative to the way overused Emma and Ella.
I don't really like this name, because it sounds incomplete to me. Like there should be something in front of Etta, such as the name Henrietta.

I don't really like this name a lot. It sounds kind of old ladyish to me and I can't imagine a kid with this name.

I like this name. I think it's really pretty and unique. =)
I actually like this name! I think it's very charming and old fashioned and much more unique than the still pretty but very overused Ella.
Could also be a nickname for Elizabeth, Elisabetta, Jetta, etc.

Sounds bad, has no class, and like the other person said above: it's not, or doesn't sound, intelligent.
Etta Zuber Falconer was the first African American to receive her PHD in mathematics.
My step-grandmother's middle name was DeEtta. I've never seen it anywhere else. Her daughter and a friend gave their daughters the DeEtta as a first name.
I don't like this name because it sounds the same as the terrorist group ETA. Nasty associations.
Love the sassy, classy, old school sound of Etta. Of course it makes me think of Etta James!
I hate all names ending in -etta, they all sound like names of unintelligent country girls from several decades back. This is just a minimalist variation of all those hideous names.
