Awh, this one is undiscovered gem! It could make a comeback, now that the short and sweet vintage names are trendy. ^^

Alta was 153rd in popularity in the 1890s, it's a really underused vintage name. I think it'd appeal to people who like the names Elsie, Alma, Rosa, etc.

Would be an unfortunate name if she was unusually tall, but it is pretty!
