The names Nosson (Natan in non- ashkenazik pronunciation) and Nota were often paired as an Ashkenazi male name. The second name Nota is usually pronounced "nut-uh" with both vowels making the same u sound as in the word nut. In a chassidik pronouciation it could be more like "Noosen Nooteh".
It's not the same as the more modern Hebrew name Neta which I am only familiar with as a female name.
