Hettie is a short and cheerful name for girls steeped in origins, mainly used in English and Dutch. This cute appellation started as a nickname for several names, each carrying diverse endearments baby can ponder as they grow. Like the German Hedwig, meaning “worthy of battle,” and Hester, a form of the Persian and Hebrew Esther, meaning “star,” “myrtle,” and “bride.” Hettie may also come from the French Henrietta, meaning “sovereign of the homeland,” for the new ruler of your heart and home. Hetty Feather is a children’s novel by Jacqueline Wilson set in the Victorian era, which has since blossomed into its own British television series.
