  • I don't know anyone with that name, but I do like it. Its a real name, and has been around a long time. My mom and I have the same discussions though on why she named me Ginger, lol.

  • It kind of makes me think of like... an old dutch maid. I personally wouldn't name my kid that, but atleast it's not Shaquayla.

  • I think of Sound of Music when I hear the name Gretta, I think it's pretty. It's better than, say, Bertha or Beulah.
