Other Origin(s):British
Meaning:Jet stream; Jet black; Ruler of the house
Jetta is a feminine name of mixed origin, locked and loaded for fast-paced living. Thanks to Volkswagen, Jetta has gathered great speed in the global arena as a German-rooted name that means "jet stream." Endowed with clear direction, Jetta may find themselves a natural director. How fitting then that Jetta's posited ties to the German Henrietta should earn it the secondary meaning of "house ruler." It's a stretch for sure, but all in a day's work for this high-flying force. An easier leap would place Jetta's roots in Britain, where it stands as a reference to the glossy black jet gemstone.
