I totally understand that it takes a long name into something simple and zingy. My name is not Elizabeth or Lizzy or Lizabeth its Alizarin so people reading this should look up the name its cool.
This is my favorite nickname for Elizabeth. I don't understand why a lot people hate it's really cute and simple
