    Unusual Forms of Elizabeth?

    What is your favorite unusual variation or diminutive of the name Elizabeth?

    This is my mother’s middle name and I never thought I would find a way to use it as a middle name as it’s far too common for my taste.
    I would love to honor my mother somewhere in a baby girl’s name ( probably a 2nd middle name) but Elizabeth itself is NMS. My mother’s first name is French and one of the rare French names I dislike as I love many of them.

    However, after perusing http://www.behindthename.com/name/elizabeth
    I discovered many less common/obscure variations of Elizabeth that have me rethinking.
    However, I do not like Isabella or anything with Bella in it.

    Anouk will be the first name.

    Names that have caught my eye:

    Eliza- not out of the running but still too popular to be honest.
    Elsa
    Elly
    Beth
    Liesbeth
    Elspeth
    Ilsa
    Ilse
    Bettina
    Bette
