    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

    Lizaveta and Lisette. Or you could even do Seth. Also, one nickname you never hear anymore is Betsy, which is cute, retro, and underused.
