GretelI know my child would probably not appreciate growing up with this fairytale name. However, the "le" on the end give it a nice "little" sound. And Greta is pretty on it's own. My husband thinks I'm crazy, but I think this such a cute name.
Gretel (or Gretl) is an Austrian pet form of Margret. Many Austrian diminutives end in -l, such as Hansel (Hans), Liesl (Lise) etc.
