Re: Can anyone tell me how long has the name Neta ( נֶטַע ) has been in use?

Hi Harvey, 
The answer to your question is both yes and no. 
The spelling of both names Neta and Nota (both נטע) suggests they relate to a planting or seedling. The strange thing is that in the common combination of men's names Natan Nota (נתן נטע) the name Nota is probably a colloquial/shorthand nickname for Natan and doesn't have to do with Neta or planting despite the spelling.
