Henrietta (f) The feminine form of Henry which has
never been especially popular in England and Wales. It
has been more popular in Scotland, where it was the 82nd most frequently used name in 1935. It was still in use in 1958, but it is now very rarely given. The pet forms Hetty and Etta have sometimes been used as independent names. Helena Swan, in her Girls’ Christian Names, also gives Detta as a diminutive of Henrietta, and Henny is occasionally used.
