What do you think of danietta/danyetta/danjetta?

Bub's nearly baked and this is our only girls name idea, but we've suddenly got cold feet!

Would you assume bub will get called Danny? I'm not keen on Danny as a nickname, so if it's likely to go that way I might prefer another name...



Updated: We're now looking at Danika/Danica, but hubby and I prefer different pronunciations! Any ideas? original.gif

*cough, cough*

I would think someone has mushed Danielle with something like Henrietta - and ended up with Danietta.

Sorry, OP - there are at least 1 million beautiful girls' names out there - Danietta is not one of them.

I'm not a fan sorry - I prefer Daniella.  If you use it thoughI 'd spell it Danietta. And yep - I would say that Danni would be the likely nickname.

I like it but prefer Daniella.
I was planning on Daniella with nn Ella if DS was a girl

Never heard it before?

I prefer Daniella, the tt for me is too hard a sound and I think she'll always have to correct people. It's NMS but its your baby wink.gif

Prefer Daniella or Danica

If you don't like Danny do you like Etta? She's bound to be one of the two in our nn society, if you don't like them then you need to start looking for new names!

I'm sorry but I'm not sure what to suggest that is in the same vein as Danietta.


ETA I think all Danielle/Daniella names could end up as Danny.

Did you make that name up?

Don't really like it as it sounds like you have mashed two names together. Sorry.

#9 cassoweary

Not liking it, sorry.
i prefer Daniella or Danika/Dannika

I think Danietta is a bad idea if you don't like Danni.

What about Brietta, or Brigetta?

Processing, thanks everyone. I'm happy to hear  honest responses rather than regret it later!

It's not made up, there's a lot out there, it's on name websites etc original.gif

I also like Micah for a girl but DH hates it! We're quite stuck!

Truly awful!

#14 AnnBB

I really, really dislike it. Sorry!

#15 miinii

Posted 28 January 2013 - 04:24 PM

I really dont like it OP. I would even go as far as to say its a rather Ugly name :S

Micah i <3 but not for a girl...My DS is Micah and i couldnt imagine calling a little girl Micah.

I much prefer Daniela/Danijela or Danica/Danika.

#17 Silly Sausages

Awful OP, you can come up with something better than that! She has to live with it forever!!

#18 Justaduck

Posted 28 January 2013 - 04:34 PM

No sorry nms either.
Also I am turned off the whole Danie....names such as Danielle and Daniella as some people drop the IE sound and just say Daan-yell

#19 Great Dame

Posted 28 January 2013 - 04:36 PM

I actually really quite like the way it sounds, I just don't like the way it looks.  Which probably doesn't matter much any way.


#20 littleboysmum

Posted 28 January 2013 - 04:37 PM

Definitely a no from me.

#21 Kitty Fantastico

Posted 28 January 2013 - 04:40 PM

Sorry OP, I agree with PP that it sounds like a mushed up, hybrid name. I would assume the most natural NN would be Dani, though you might get away with Etta if you used it a lot.

I totally agree.

Sorry OP, I think it's awful. Danni would be an obvious knickname and one that I would use in preference to calling someone Danietta!!

Sorry... way too 'Craigette' for me.




#24 Lambert

Posted 28 January 2013 - 04:51 PM

Agree with PPs.  Not very pretty. Would get Danni as NN. Micah is lovely though!

#25 4kidlets

Posted 28 January 2013 - 05:13 PM

Im not keen on 4 syllable names anyway - but Dannietta no worse than others, like Henrietta,  certainly not awful to me.


However she will almost certainly get Danni as a nn so if you really dislike Danni, its probably not a good name for you to use.

I quite like Danielle and Danika/Danica - but these would just as much get nn'ed Danni so still no good for you.



Cant come at Micah as a girls name myself.
