Izetta is an old English name that means ‘renowned for her beauty.’
The first Izetta in the family that I know of was Izetta Jones, born about 1782 in Cheshire, England. She married musician William Wrenshall in Liverpool, Lancashire. They had a daughter Izetta in 1815 and two granddaughters with Izetta as first or second name. One more generation and there was another with Izetta as a first name.
After that, there were no more Izettas as a first name, but the tradition has lived on with several descendants having their middle name as Izetta. The most recent that I am aware of was Chris’s aunt, Nancy Izetta Burden.
