I agree with Jem. Find something longer that has Etta in it. Julietta nn Etta or Julie later if you'd like it more. Not as confusing for her that way. Here are more ideas:
If you really dislike it, you should change it while she's still small. It'll be harder later. A name is forever so you should love it.Maximus Alexander's Mama

Etta Mae is very darling, really it is. But since she's 15 months old and knows it by now, and you really want to change it, why not change it to something like Odetta, Bernadetta, Henrietta, Harrietta, Arietta, Isabetta, Alouetta, Annetta, Fiametta, Floretta, Evetta, Novetta, Julietta, Loretta/Lauretta, Luetta, Lucetta, Lynnetta, Marietta, Nanetta, Rosetta, Aurletta/Orletta, Olivetta, Scarletta, Violetta, Willetta, Wynetta/Winetta, Ionetta (ee-oh-netta or eye-oh-netta). That way she know's she's Etta, but as she gets older learns her whole first name. It'll also keep both you and your husband happy.
My fave pairings:
Olivetta Mae- absolute fave; so cute! nn Ollie, Liv, Etta.

I agree with the others that if you change it you need to do it soon and changing it to a name Etta can be a nn for would be your best bet. There are plenty of full names for Etta if you chose to go that route. You already got plenty of suggustions but I'm gonna add Estelle/Estella nn Etta. Good luck!
