One great benefits to this name is that it will never go in or out of trends, it's a solid name that sounds good in any decade. It also spands across the world, in spelling and speech. There are so many cool nicknames that you could use also, not to mention because of its length as a first name practically any middle name works. And to end on teh best note: Elizabeth or Elisabeth could never be mistaken for a guys name!

my name is Elizabeth, but i'm not so sure i like it, because it's too common. But the only thing i really like about it is that there r a ton of nicknames for it. I have tons of nicknames, but with my first daughter i would like her middle name to be Elizabeth. So, i like it, but then yet again i don't like it.

11/1/2021 6:00:18 PM

but I think Elizabeth is the most elegant, distinguished, beautiful names. And, obviously a true classic. Granted, there are so, so many nicknames, Elizabeth on it's own is simply gorgeous. It's been passed down through my family and I feel totally proud to have the name. It's not a fad, it'll never be a name that sounds ridiculous in five years; simply put: it's timeless.
