This name means "golden eagle". It's a Native American name. I used it for a character in my stories because it sounds nice and even alludes to her intentions.

As a person who owns this name, there are several things to note: It is not a common name, however I am proof that is still in use today. It's much more common in the Southern Hemisphere, mostly South Africa and Australia. It was very common in the generations from the 40's to the early 60s. I know people born into the late 50s who have had it. Also commonly found is "Peta-lee". But there is no one I know born after that period (besides myself) that has this name (unless it's a middle name).

It has multiple meanings that come from different parts of society.
It also is also is a unit prefix in the metric system denoting multiplication by 10(15) i.e. 1000000000000000.
As well, the Peta, the Pāli word for a Preta, or hungry ghost in Buddhism.
Lastly Peta is the Egyptian word for triangle.

I particularly dislike the connotations of being related to the animals rights movement but other people seem to think 'It's beautiful." or "so different".

Peta Jaye Weber, née Reeder-Gibb, is the only daughter of Andrew Roy "Andy" Gibb (1958-1988) and his wife Kim Reeder (they were married only a short while). Andy is the younger brother of award-winning and massively-successful singing group the Bee Gees (Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb; Andy was nearly a member himself) and late-1970s-1980s music star in his own right.

While Andy was born in England, he grew up in Australia; Kim was also Australian, which helps explain how they came to use this specifically-Australian feminine form of Peter for their daughter.

I knew a girl named Peta once. Her name was always mistaken for Peter because we don't pronounce the Rs on the end of words here. I like Petra much better, it's prettier and doesn't have the problem.

PETA (or People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is an organization that uses a fantasy version of the Animal Kingdom to promote their agenda. As you can see, it's not a fabulous association.

Not my real name, but a nickname, and I think it's a cool name. I don't care about any of that nonsense associated with the organization that uses that acronym.

Given that we have a lunatic fringe movement in the U.S. called PETA, I would never name a daughter Peta. It also sounds too much like something else people don't want to be thought of as well. Petra sounds so much better and doesn't have the stigmata Peta has.

This is my middle name (only it's spelt Petah). I've always had a love hate relationship with it. I like it because it's rather unique, but I did used to get teased a lot.

I have a lot of problems with this name. First there PETA (as in People for the Ethical treatment of Animals, the extremists). Then there's the fact that it sounds like a 3 year old saying 'Peter'. And it also reminds me of pita bread. ):

What a strange name. Immediately I thought of the Disney film "Peter Pan" (1953) -- when Wendy says Peter, it always comes out as "PEE-tah", as in "But, Peeeeetaaah, how do we get to Neverland?"

This is a stupid name. It sounds like "pita" as in the type of bread, and it's also the name of that horrible "animal rights" organization.

There were a few South African girls called Peta, or Peta-Ann, who were born in the 1940s; since then it seems to have disappeared.
Anneza  7/9/2008
As someone who finds the ads of PETA distasteful and misogynous, I wouldn't use this name. Besides, if the name is pronounced as ''PEE-ta'' instead of ''PE-ta'', it sounds like certain people's pronunciation of Peter.

The indie/folk singer Ani DiFranco had a daughter in 2007. She named her Petah, which is similar to Peta.
Coffeebean  1/19/2008
This name reminds me of the anti-animal cruelty organization PETA, especially when it's capitalized on this site, haha. I wouldn't use this name, since most people would also associate it with PETA, whom I personally am not a big fan of. I'm pretty sure if PETA didn't exist (or just went by a different name/abbreviation), my view on this name may be different.

I can't help but think of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals when I hear this name. That or bread.

The writing is not quite correct if it's supposed to be the feminine form of "Peter", which would be "Petra" (with the "r"). [Petra is a different name -ed]
Paganqueen  7/16/2005
If it was Petra as the feminine of Peter then it wouldn't be quite correct because it would be the feminine form of Petre, and as for Paganqueen look at Petra does it say feminine form of Peter.

Can be pronounced "PEE-tah" or "PEH-tah".
