Re: Pronunciation of Jetta? #general

Herb <herbiem@...>

The pronounced is Yetta. This is a common name for Jewish women. In
Hungary and other countries the J is pronounced as a Y. Many Yettas are
called Ethel in the U.S., but any name could be selected.including 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.
