At last! The perfect name for baby! Etta is a girl's name of German, French, and English origin brimming with power. Widely considered a short form of Henrietta, this name holds a presence all of its own. Even before Etta James infused the title with gravitas and critical acclaim, the name stood strong as meaning "home ruler." Walking in the footsteps of many a trailblazing gospel performer, baby will have no problem extending their reign and ruling the stage.
