Nickname for Elizabeth Grace

My husband and I are considering naming our daughter [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Grace[/name] on the birth certificate, but having her predominantly go by a nickname. Our favorite nicknames that we are considering are [name]Gracie[/name], [name]Libby[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], and [name]Lily[/name](in no particular order). What are your thoughts and which of these do you think sound best for her? There are just too many choices and we are having difficulty deciding.

Thank you for your advice!

[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Grace[/name] is lovely! I’d avoid a nickname from the middle, it’ll confuse everyone she ever meets.

[name]Libby[/name] & [name]Lily[/name] would be my choices simply because [name]Ella[/name] & [name]Ellie[/name] are everywhere in my neighborhood! I mean, I hear them a thousand times a day, everywhere I go, everytime I go somewhere. Of [name]Elizabeth[/name]'s nickname range, my favorite is [name]Bess[/name], then [name]Lily[/name] and then [name]Liz[/name] (I think [name]Liz[/name] is refreshing on a little one again!). [name]Eliza[/name] is another lovely option. I say wait until you see her, you’ll know what fits then, believe me, I’ve been there myself! :smiley: [name]Hope[/name] that helped.

[name]How[/name] about [name]Lyla[/name]?

From your choices, I would say [name]Lily[/name]. [name]Gracie[/name] is adorable but I agree that it might be confusing. I also love [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Liza[/name], and [name]Liz[/name]. [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Grace[/name] is beautiful, btw!

[name]Ella[/name], [name]Ellie[/name] and [name]Lily[/name] are a little too popular for my tastes. My favorite of your choices is [name]Libby[/name]. Some other [name]Elizabeth[/name] nicknames are [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Betsy[/name], [name]Betty[/name], [name]Beth[/name], [name]Liza[/name], [name]Liz[/name], [name]Lizzie[/name]…

I like [name]Libby[/name] out of your choices. I am partial to [name]Liz[/name] and [name]Lizzie[/name]! I am a [name]Elizabeth[/name] and go by [name]Liz[/name] :slight_smile: Great name choice!

I like [name]Lizzi[/name] and [name]Libby[/name]! I went to college with a girl whose nickname was Bitsy. (I thought it was cute!)

Of your choices, I like [name]Libby[/name] and [name]Lily[/name]. What about [name]Eliza[/name] or [name]Liza[/name]? [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Grace[/name] is lovely! :slight_smile:

What a beautiful name & congrads! [name]Elizabeth[/name] has so many great nicknames. [name]Libby[/name] and [name]Bess[/name] are my faves.

nicknames that we are considering are:
[name]Gracie[/name] - would stick to nicknames for first name [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Libby[/name] - love!
[name]Ella[/name], [name]Ellie[/name] - too common
[name]Lily[/name] - love! But [name]Lily[/name] is a nickname for [name]Lillian[/name]
Also love [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Lizzy[/name], [name]Liza[/name], [name]Bess[/name]

I have a special love for the name “[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Grace[/name]” because it was my grandmother’s name. She went by [name]Elizabeth[/name] as a girl, and [name]Betty[/name] or [name]Betsy[/name] in college and after. Although I have often thought “[name]Betty[/name]” seemed like an older name, I recently met a darling [name]Betty[/name] (aged 2) and, coupled with the pretty, young mother on the t.v. show “Mad Men”, I think [name]Betty[/name] is ready for a revival. Congratulations on your new baby girl.

[name]Beth[/name], [name]Betty[/name] or [name]Eliza[/name]
