I rarely see this French version of Henrietta in use, and certainly, Henrietta and Harriet seem to be much more popular - at least, here in the UK. I personally love all of these names, in different ways, and do wish that I heard Henriette more. It's exquisite and, as with both Henrietta and Harriet, there are some lovely potential nicknames to consider.

This is one instance where I don't prefer the French form of a name. I think the -a on the end is needed to round out the sound and make the name more feminine.
