    Elizabeth! It's always classic and beautiful, with wonderful nn options like Elle, Libby, Liz, Beth, Abby, etc.

    I think Catherine is pretty, but lacks something. To me, the spelling Katherine has more spunk. If it were Katherine vs. Elizabeth vs. Josephine, then I might have chosen Katherine. I love the nn Kat. Some people say the spelling Katherine isn't as classic or classy, but I think that's ridiculous. It's not a trendy spelling at all.

    Josephine seems almost annoying to me. The nn Josie makes me think of Josie Grossie, and none of the other nns really do it for me (but I do like JoJo a little). It doesn't have the same timeless quality as Elizabeth.

    Its so hard! They are all so beautiful, and I love the nns for each (Lizzie/Ellie, Cate, Josie)
    I would have to go with Elizabeth or Catherine, They are so classic but yet so pretty. I prefer Catherine to Katherine.
