Hertha - Meaning of Hertha
[ 2 syll. her-(t)ha, he-r-tha ] The baby girl name Hertha is pronounced HHER-THaa †. Hertha's language of origin is English and Germanic. It is predominantly used in English and German. From Germanic roots, its meaning is 'strong, bold' - in this context, Hertha can be used in the German language. Nerthus (Latinized) is an older form of the name. Nerthus or Nertha was a Teutonic goddess of fertility mentioned by the Roman historian Tacitus; a misreading resulted in the spelling Hertha. The name was first adopted by the English speakers in the 19th century.
