  • "Hi! My name is Eliza, and I love my name! I mean, sure people misprounounce it sometimes, like my teachers and friends at school, but I still like it because of it's uniqueness. I'm pretty sure I'm the only Eliza at school :P" Jun. 21, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Name is Eliza and it's probably the cutest name that i can think about. Eliza can be spelt in lots of different ways like Aliza, Eliza,Liza and so on also eliza is short for elizabeth and she was the queen so i think that's pretty cool to have the name that is named after the queen" Oct. 3, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "We have a 10 year old daughter named Eliza, I think it is a beautiful, classic name and lovely because people always comment on what a pretty name it is and how lucky she is to have a unique name. We were surprised to find another Eliza in my son's year at school when we moved but actually I thought it was lovely to see there are others who love it as much as us!"

  • "My Name is Eliza and I was born in 2003 and I live in England.I think it's a very pretty name and I'm the only one at my school who's called Eliza so I kinda feel unquie in some ways.But it's annoying when people say your name is Elizabeth not Eliza and once when I got a card of one of my friends they spelt my name Alizer when isn't even close.I love my name and I'm glad my family chose it.😘❤" Apr. 2, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "I saw on a new website www.parenting-checkpoint/baby-names/Eliza that Eliza is the "smartest female name". Eliza is 6.5 times more likely to study at Yale and 3.5 times more likely to study at Harvard than an average female student." Dec. 5, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my daughter Eliza after her great grandmother on her fathers side, it is a classical name, and i hope that as she grows the loves it just as much as I do, and that she doesn't shorten it, when she is naughty, she gets the full Eliza Jane, and whenever we have to register somewhere, people always comment on how lovely the name is! At the time I had her the name was fairly out of fashion, however, that has since changed with a number of "celebraties" naming their child Eliza." Jun. 18, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "We call our Elizabeth "Betsy". We call her "Eliza Jane" when we are kidding around (she's really an Elizabeth Emily). I love this classic name. When I was a kid I read in the "Guiness Book of World Records" (or some book like that) that "Elizabeth" was the girls name that had the most nicknames in the English language and I thought it would be nice for a kid to have lots of choices if she did not like her given name." Dec. 17, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "The name Eliza perfectly fits our 6 year old: it's feminine but not fluffy and has that great zing from the "z". People always say what a pretty name it is, but often get it mixed up with Elijah, the boys' name." Aug. 21, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "We have a baby girl due any day- we're planning on naming her Eliza. It's not as common as Elizabeth but we think it's still as beautiful! Classic, timeless and sweet." Aug. 9, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "My mama's Eliza and growing up I was usually embarrassed having to say my name so I avoided situations that would lead there. I really hated my name. It is a name that is rare compared to a Mary,Jane,etc. I've accepted my name because it is beautiful and rare." Dec. 14, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Eliza, and I have always loved my name. I don't personally know anyone else who has this name. It feels nice to be unique, rather than all the Emily's or Hanna's. It's a very classy, elegant name that deserves to be considered when choosing a name for your baby. However, many people do mispronounce it, calling me "elisa" or "elijah". It's still a fabolous name, though!" Mar. 22, 2007: Report as inappropriate
