Looking for an ancestor Nettie Mae Wideman, died 1903 in Bonne Terre MO. Dead end. What other names besides Jeanette or Anette would Nettie have stood for?

Nettie might not be short for anything; that may just be her name. My aunt's middle name is Nettie.

Just thought I'd add that my brother's sister-in-law is called Nettie.

It's no a shorting or contraction for an alternative given name. Her parents were from the Netherlands and it may just be a more common given name there than in English speaking countries.
