I wouldn't use it on its own, but it would be great as a nickname for Bridget.

I prefer Jetta for girls. It still retains that tough quality, which I think is why people are attracted to Jet for girls. Jetta is also similar to Jenna, so I think that could make Jetta more popular for girls.

I really like this name for a girl. I like how bold it is (or at least to me). It's not a name for everyone but I really like it as a name instead of a nickname although that's cool too. I'm not sure about a middle name though...

Nope. This is so... supersonic.
