Nameberry consesnsus of Ebba?
This suddenly occurred to me last night - Ebba could honour Deborah/Debra/Debbie.
I'd always liked it but had in mind it was Scandinavian therefore as unusable as Hrefna. According to Nameberry it's both English and Germanic? I'm having a hard time finding other sources to check (as much as I love Nameberry it's origins can be a bit off) - can anyone clarify this?
And what is the overall opinion? My only worry is that she'd get ''Emma? Etta? Sorry can you spell that out?''.olivia - eighteen (finally!), england but sometimes canada. i like names, film & philosophy, and i'm desperately maternal.

Rosemary ''Romy'' ○ Annabel ○ Maude ○ Sibyl ''Billie'' ○ Oona ○ Mavis ○ Fenella ''Nell''

I'm sorry, but I don't like it. It reminds me of a baby babbling.直美 Naomi
