When I meet peopl I tell them my name is Elizabeth because it is hard for the to say my full name. I am definetly thinking about naming my daugher, when I have one, Elizabeth or after my mother Isabel. I Cannot believe how lucky I am to have such a beautiful name and with it so many nicknames. People have/do call me Ebaby, Egirl, Ebabe, Lizzi, Liz, Lizz, Eliza, Elisa, Liza, and even sometimes Lizabeth. But the classic names are always Elizabeth and Elizabethann."

It's biblical and extremely distinguished sounding, a perfect name for royality considering its meaning. I'm a little confused about the meaning, however. I became curious after taking Hebrew 101, where I learned that "Beth" means house (Ashkanazi pronounciation) and also noticed that many words for God begin with "El" or "Eli," for example Eloohanu ("Our God"). So Elizabeth, directly translated, appears to mean "God's House." My internet searches have given me variations--Oath of God, Consecrated to God, God's Elect. I suppose loosely translated, "God's House" could mean all of these things, but I haven't figured out yet how literal the English translations are or if my translation was at all correct."
