Good thing I'm not German. It's a perfectly good name in the US.

I think the names that Europeans detest are the ones that Americans like. In France an Adrienne is probably 80 years old, in America it's a common name.

Horrible name! Here in Germany and Switzerland a girl named Liesel would get bullied because it's THE BIGGEST German grandma name you could choose!

I love it too. It sounds vintage but not old-fashioned. I can imagine every person named Elisabeth using Liesel as a nickname, it sounds equally romantic and tomboyish, it just suits everyone. Also, I can see this name both on a grown woman and on a little girl. The only downside is that in my country, it rhymes with diesel and I immediately think of that when I hear this name, which I like but would never use.
