"Definitely considering this for my first daughter! I worry that she'll have to correct people all the time, but I always had to say it's Rachel with just E L at the end, and it wasn't toooo bad...." Jan. 20, 2011:
"My name is Lisabeth actually, and, of course, it's not even in the database! I'm always saying no E and an S no Z, and if I say Lisa-beth-one name...they usually get it, but I don't mind, it's a very rare spelling. I love it, it's unique and people remember me. My parents are from Europe and it's an old world way to spell it. I go by Lis, Leese and Lisabeth." May. 7, 2010:
"My name is Elisabeth Anna and when I was little I was such a brat in telling people it's Elisssssabeth with an "s". As an adult I found out why my mother named me that, it's spelled that way in the bible. I have never had a nickname, my name is Elisabeth and I always demanded to be called that. :)" Nov. 23, 2009:
"I named my daughter Elisabeth because I think it is a classy, beautiful name. She grew up to be a live-wire, very vivacious and outgoing-she loves it too." Mar. 28, 2009:
"Wee!~ My name is Elisabeth and I'm from Norway, I've always loved my name! I think it's because everyone called me Queen Elizabeth when I was a little girl. I've met 2 persons who got Elisabeth in their name." Feb. 10, 2009:
"My name is Elisabeth and I have to constantly correct people because they automatically put a Z instead of an S. I really don't care whether people say it with an S or Z sound that doesn't bother me just the not spelling it correctly does. I've never met anyone with the same first name spelled like mine. I used to think I was the only one because I never saw it spelled like that anywhere. My mom's friend did name her daughter Ashley Elisabeth, while mine's Elisabeth Ashley, because she loved the names but she didn't want to directly copy it so she switched the first and middle names."

"Yay my name is Elisabeth and I love it! It is so beautiful." Jul. 9, 2008:
"I named my daughter Elisabeth because it is a classic and very femenin name. I like the S instead of Z spelling. It's much prettier than with a z. My daughter loves her name! Her nicknames are Elisa, Lil & Lilly. The possibilities are endless with this name!
Liz, Lizzie, Lissie, Lis, Lil, Lilly, Beth, Betty...." Jun. 20, 2008:
