"My full name is Elizabeth, but I've always been called Beth (which I love). Elizabeth is a classic, regal, feminine and international name that is known around the world. I use Elizabeth is some professional instances, though, and I hate it when people just assume they can call me Liz. I really abhor the name Liz--it sounds so harsh. It seems rude that some people just assume they can call you Liz without even asking, and then I have to correct them: ?It?s Beth? never Liz, please.? It's amazing, but some people don't seem to know that Beth is a short form of Elizabeth. I even had a guy argue with me once, saying that Beth does not come from Elizabeth!! Whatever...
Elizabeth is a great name that ages well, but I do prefer the spelling Elisabeth. I had even thought of changing the spelling of my name, but now I think it?s a little too late. But otherwise, I love my name. Thanks, Mom!!" May. 26, 2018:

My mom thinks we named her Elizabeth because her middle name is Elizabeth but my favorite literary character is Elizabeth Bennett but I also love Elizabeth Taylor in old old movies and from My Fair Lady, Liza Doolittle. We mostly call her Elizabeth but her nick names are Lee Lee, Lily, Lizbeth and Lizbug (she is only two) we wanted to give her a name that was strong and would look good on business cards or officail documents.

"My sister is named Elizabeth, after my great-grandmother Mary Elizabeth. I think it is a beautiful name, very flowing and rich with a variety of phonetic sounds. It also has a long and honored history, and remains one of the all-time most popular names, also having the most variations and the most nicknames of any other name I have studied. My sister's nickname is Libby, but as an adult professionally she prefers Elizabeth. I would have to say she does it justice, having a masters in linguistics and a doctorate in Near Eastern Studies, and having devoted much of her life to translating languages of some the world's most remote people." Oct. 17, 2008:
"How's this, my best friend's name is Eilish. Which is Irish for Elizabeth. She hates her name but I think its beautiful!

LOVE TO ALL OTHER EILISH'S OUT THERE!! Mwah! Xx" Aug. 21, 2008:

"I love my name. I hate it when people are like "Elizabeth is such an overused boring name". They should just suck it up. I am very offended when people say thay hate my name. I am proud to have a name that means oath of god because I am very religious. :3 ýý" Jul. 23, 2008:
"I'm an Elizabeth, not a Liz. or Lizzy or any other names." Jul. 15, 2008:

"Hey, my name is Elisabeth, and I love it!! It is not wierd or anything, actually it is the traditional European way. So don't say that, it is really kind of offensive." Jul. 9, 2008:
"My parents actually named me Elizabethann. It's pronounced like elizabeth ann and not like the time period. I LOVE my name so much because even though it is so popular it is still a beautiful name. What's really funny is that I have only met one person with the name Elizabeth even though how popular it is. 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." Jul. 7, 2008:
"My name is Elizabeth but hardly anyone ever calls me that, even though I've never asked anyone to call me anything different. My immediate family and a few friends call me B or Aunt B. My work friends call me Liz, Lizzy, or even Iz, and my extended family still calls me Beth, even though that is my least favorite of my nicknames. The only people that call me Elizabeth are people I've just met and people that I know from school but aren't friends with. There are so many nicknames that come from Elizabeth that its pretty much impossible to only be known by that name." Jun. 30, 2008:

When I have my daughter I plan to name her Isabel which is another form of Elisabeth." Jan. 29, 2008:
