My name is Henrietta, my brother calls me Etta. I love my name so much, and I love how it's not that popular but the nickname Etta is so popular that it's kinda annoying.

You should read the books, because their good books and, before I read them when my mom said "Henny" or "Henrietta" I thought it was a little different, but I got used to it quick after reading all five books. It is a fun sireis.
