    Nameberry consesnsus of Ebba?

    This suddenly occurred to me last night - Ebba could honour Deborah/Debra/Debbie.

    I'd always liked it but had in mind it was Scandinavian therefore as unusable as Hrefna. According to Nameberry it's both English and Germanic? I'm having a hard time finding other sources to check (as much as I love Nameberry it's origins can be a bit off) - can anyone clarify this?

    And what is the overall opinion? My only worry is that she'd get ''Emma? Etta? Sorry can you spell that out?''.

    I'm sorry, but I don't like it. It reminds me of a baby babbling.

    Ourbabynamer.com lists it as Anglo-Saxon meaning "rich fortress." Ebba is not really my style, but I feel like it is usable.

    To me, being an Ebony and getting nicknamed Ebby and Eb (and, believe it or not, the occaisional Ebba), I don't see anything unusable about the name.
