I love having the name Libby. Apart from when people abbreviate it to Lib or Libs. It is already an abbreviation of Elizabeth, why cut it down anymore - next thing you know people will be calling me L!! But on the whole being called Libby is great - its not that common but easy enough for people to remember.. xo

Libby is in no way shape or form a boys name!! It even says it's a form of Elizabeth! That would be truly sad if a boy had that name. Libby Madison is my baby cousin. It's funny too cause my greatgrandma's name is Elizabeth.

My full name is Elizabeth, I love being called Libby (except that, as a kid, I got annoyed it didn't rhyme with anything. Though that could have saved me from some teasing too perhaps!)
