    It is technically three syllables, but most people say it with two.

    Right.
    It's possible to run the syllables together in almost any name.
    I know an Elizabeth who when she says her name it sounds like 2 syllables (Liz-beth), but that doesn't mean the name actually has two syllables.

    I don't think I've met anyone who pronounced it as a first name with 3 distinct syllables, it's usually 2.5

    I knew a guy named Everett and he everyone else always said Ev-rhett. Our high school English teacher who was British always said it that way too.
