elizabeth

origin: Hebrew

meaning: God is My Oath

e real old-timers, this one started out in both the Old and New Testaments and has since been used by tons of queens and saints. It’s used all over the world, in its original form as well as in all different language variants. And probably most mind-blowing of all -- it’s been ranked in the top 25 for at least the last 100 years. No matter what the era, there’s some sort of trendy nickname to pull from Elizabeth -- 100 years ago it was Elsie or Bessie; today it’s Ellie or Eliza. Don’t let the top 10 things scare you off because there are so many nicknames and ways to adjust it. But more importantly, rankings just don’t mean as much as they used to…and this goes for all the top names, not just Elizabeth. In 1940, the name ranked number 20, but a significantly greater percentage of babies were given the name than today, when the name’s in the top ten. So many different names are used today that no matter how popular a name is, you won’t find as many babies with the same one as you would have 30 or 40 years ago.
