Nicknames for Netta

"Nett" was the nickname that most of my grandmother's friends gave her, and she was called "Aunt Nett" as a term of respect and endearment by many. One of her oldest friends, since her girlhood, sometimes called her "Nettie".

With our baby Netta we insist that she be called Netta--No nick names. (Though I have slipped and called her Nettie a few times by accident.)
