    Yes, but Gretchen's an awful name... Why not just call her Greta Lee-Ann?

    Yes Greta is suitable for Gretchen. Everytime i hear or read the name Gretchen I think of Gretchen in mean girls so if this happens to be for a child prepare for teasing in the very near future. Also Gretchen Lee-Ann? I think thats a little much try for something simple like "Gretchen Marie" or perhaps Gretchen Ann itself would work.

    Greta is the daughter name from the parent names of Gretchen and Margaret, so it is the correct shortening of the name.

    So, if you like those names, it would be okay. Of course, depending on how close the person is, a good nickname could be Steve if it fit..

    I like 'Greta', like Greta Garbo.

    But Gretchen Lee-Ann is a bit of a mouthful.

    Could you choose a single-barrelled middle name?
