TheHumanCanvas Says:


I thought this name would be an Italian variation of Nanette, so I don't see the problem. I sort of like it, actually. Could make a very elegant middle name, with a short and chic given name :D

Vespertinerose Says:


That is still decently living, compared the poor. NO one would want her fate but she still was a martyr, in her own right and in her own way. Despite how she died, she did do good and made progress for women. Saints get venerated and honored, why not a Nanette, she could as well! :-)

june7rose Says:


She died of ovarian cancer, same as her daughter Mary, in a frigid old home, forced to live with little staff and few conveniences by Henry who hated her at that point. Are you a fan of hers? She was a decent person I'd say, but I wouldn't want her fate.

Vespertinerose Says:


She wasn't beheaded, lived out her life decently in confinement with Dowager Princess of Wales title, not to mention the women did a lot for the poor and pushed for good education for equal sexes. She had a sound mind and a strong opinion, and was quoted "were it not for her sex, she could have defied all the heroes of History." She had many strong sympathizers for her case and mourner for her "natural" death.

I'm not sure anyone can carry it. Katherine of Aragon tried, but things didn't go too well for her.

peigin.leitir.moir Says:


Nina means little girl, so this just makes me think "little- little girl"

fuzzycub Says:


Ninny is an insult.

Vespertinerose Says:


I think both are great options! :-)

vblanch Says:


I think it sounds much prettier and more "name-like" than Nanette.

Vespertinerose Says:


That's right and if a queen can carry the name well than most any one could! :-)

rabia_chrisden Says:


This name is pretty. It's like little Nina. Still a pretty name

june7rose Says:


The Infanta was the next queen of Spain.

Vespertinerose Says:


If Infanta could be used why not Ninetta? People walk around with worse meanings and associations to their names and get along just fine. Besides I could see this name equivalent to Nanette in feel, and could picture Ninetta on a petite women. Besides Etta is a great nicknames and really brings this name into the modern era, and I think of Etta James.
