I think Betty is a cute nickname but I wouldn't use it as a full name. I know an Elizabeth who gets called Betty exclusively. You can stick with one nickname with Elizabeth pretty easily I think. I also liked a previous poster's suggestion of Bettine. You get the Betty nickname more directly with this one.

I also think you should choose a longer formal name for your daughter. Betty is too nicknameish and if you don't want to name her Elizabeth there are other choices like:
Though if you can't find a more formal name for her then just go ahead with Betty it's not hideous but too short and cutesy for my taste. But I don't think she will hate you for the name Betty

If I was Betty, I would love my mom even more. It's a fantastic name which almost every girl would like to have but...I'd give her an option and put Elizabeth or Bettina or Bethany on her birth certificate. I see no problem with her going only by her nickname when she is little - a lot of people do that(including me) but she will have an opportunity to have something formal.● Olympia ● Literature Student ● Writer ● Name nerd
