    What do you think of Leta?

    We have the name Leta on our family tree. I can't decide if I like it. On the one hand, it's pretty, simple, and feminine. On the other hand, it feels kind of insubstantial, doesn't it?

    What are your thoughts? Would you use it?

    I like it. I think it's short, sweet, and perfectly substantial on its own.

    I think it's lovely, definitely not insubstantial! At least no more so than say Leila or Etta. Both of which are perfectly acceptable as full first names.

    Leta is great.

    I quite like it. There's something distinctive yet so simple about it

    I like Leta a lot, along with soundalike Leda. These names are feminine, simple, mythological and beautiful. Not at all insubstantial. Leta is a perfect sweet-spot name.

    Also, it means joyful! Who wouldn't love that?

    I like it a lot. It's distinctive without being totally unfamiliar. It's pretty too.

    I think Leta is very pretty by itself, but if you are looking for something a bit longer to use Leta as a nickname...

    I think Leta holds up on its own and is sweet. It makes me think of Leta Lestrange from the Fantastic Beasts movies, and that isn't a bad association.
