Nettie is also derived from Genesha.
I had an aunt named Nettie, and as far as I know, it wasn't a nickname or diminutive.  Her "Jewish" name was Genesha, and formal/English name was Nettie. I can't be absolutely certain, as I don't have birth certificate, but Nettie is what's on the 1910 census form when she was ~6 years old.
