Jetta



I know it's a car but it's also a name. I don't know if it will fly with my dh or not but I really really really like it. I love the sound and look of it. It seems cute w/o being cutesy. And I also think it would age well. I don't know

There is also Jedda / Jeda. The spelling would separate it from the car more but then Jedi comes into play

What are your impressions? Help me walk away or tell me why I should keep it!

Well it's not popular which is good I guess! I don't think I'd choose it for a future child of my own, but I do think it's alright. I'd go with Jetta instead of Jeda cause I think of Jedi.

I just remembered that Jetta is the name of Emily Elizabeth's 'friend' on the Clifford the Big Red Dog series. It doesn't seem odd when I hear it on that cartoon. I don't think of the car at all. Hmmm.

I prefer Jetta and I think it's quite cute. Not sure If I'd use it but I think if I heard it on someone else's child I'd like it. I'd keep it on your short list

It's more tasteful than Mercedes or Lexus

I also think of Jedi, but if you're careful in pronouncing it, I shouldn't worry.

is it for a boy or girl? I actually quite like it, and prefer the Jetta spelling - Jeda or Jedda is too close to Jedi for me!
