When I say "Elisabet is a Hebrew name" obviously this means that Elisabet is a name of Hebrew origin, not the original Hebrew form of the name. In an anthroponymic or philological context, Hebrew, Aramaic, Germanic, Latin or Greek (among others) as adjectivation of "name" means "of Hebrew/Aramaic/Germanic/Latin/Greek origin", not "Hebrew/etc. form".

For example, in BtN:"Greek names include Peter, Luke and Stephen, while Paul and Mark are Latin." And this doesn't mean that Stephen is the Greek form or Mark the Latin form.
