Re: Pronunciation of Jetta? #general

My best guess would be "Yetta" - a pretty common name, which could easily
have been Americanized to "Ida"...

My g-g-g'father's sister was named Jetta according to her birth
certificate, but she is enumerated in the 1880 census as Ida. I was
wondering if possibly the census taker misunderstood Jetta as "Ida" or if
Ida was a "nickname" of sorts. I have no idea how Jetta is pronounced.>>
