Marta Massey Wheeler Says:


I was born long before the Sound of Music but I've always liked my name. It's not trendy or popular in the U.S., but is classic with a twist and is easy to spell and pronounce.

Zelliew Says:


I find Martha old fashioned, but I agree Marta sounds fresh

yvonne_virginia Says:


I love The Sound of Music! Liesel was one of my favorite names for a while (from somewhere else, though) but I love German names. Georg is awesome, though George is just a bit better IMO.

TheHumanCanvas Says:


How does 'The Sound of Music' churn out so many wonderful names? (More reason to love the film) Marta, Liesl, Gretl, Brigitta, Friedrich, Kurt... even Georg, sue me. Marta has so much going for it - short and sweet, strong, unusual but not hippy or cre8tive. And Marta von Trapp, who is just an adorable child.

SimoneKadele Says:


I agree with the PPs. I have a lovely Spanish family friend named Marta, who suits her name well.

Thia76 Says:


Marta sounds fresher to me too, than Martha...maybe I'm partial to it because I have a brother named Martin and have Marta, Marya, Mario on my list of sweet potentials. I love that Marta sounds more European than the old biblical Martha.

HarderToBreathe Says:


I don't agree with Nameberry's comment on this name. Marta does not sound "perennially Old World". I don't think it sounds any more "old world" than Martha does. I think Marta is exotic and fresh (I actually think it is more fresh than Martha). And I love how it has no references to any Martas, like Marta in The Sound of Music. Marta was adorable in that movie! I think Marta is a great choice but is not talked about much on Nameberry.
