Comments for BETH:

The second-youngest March sister in Louisa May Alcott's Little Women (probably short for Elizabeth, but her full name is never mentioned).

Actually, Beth March's first name is mentioned as Elizabeth in the book Little Women. She is only called by her nickname, Beth, in the movie version with Claire Danes playing the character.

Beth means "House of God".

Bethel means "house of God." Beth alone simply means "house."

It doesn't REALLY mean anything when it comes down to it---it's the name it derives from, such as Elizabeth, that has the meaning (and the form Beth, as a given name, still lacks a real meaning because it's derived from one of those names).

Kiss had a song called "Beth." It is their most famous ballad.

Beth is a sweet, pretty name for a girl. Used either as an independent name or a nickname for Bethan, Bethany or Elizabeth it is a great name.

My mom had a friend named Beth and she died. And Beth March from Little Woman also died, so this name always makes me feel sad.

Beth is such a pretty, sweet name. I love it.

I don't care for this nickname too much, if my name was Elizabeth I'd rather be called by Elizabeth not Beth.

Singer Pink's real name is Alecia Beth. I forgot the last name.

My mom's name is Beth and my middle name is Beth for her. Her mom's name was Elizabeth. I think it's been great as a middle name, but my mom says that she has always disliked, or rather just wished her name was something more. The nickname her dad called her was Bethy. If I am ever blessed with a daughter I would consider this as a middle name.

When I hear the name Beth I think of a little girl with a round face and curly blonde hair, I'm not sure why I think of this but I just do.

Way more mature sounding than Liz or Lizzy. I like it, but not as a full name.
-- spaz123  8/18/2007
I think it goes well with the name Lucy. Lucy Beth is a lovely name.

My sisters name is Beth. My Mum named her after the Kiss song, kind of music my Mum was into. It's not Elizabeth or Bethany, and many people will try and lengthen thinking that it's just a short version of something else. I think it's pretty.

If there is any chance your daughter will be living in a French-speaking country for very long, reconsider naming her Beth. The French can't say the "th" sound -- it doesn't exist in their language -- and so "Beth" comes out sounding like "bet", the phonetic spelling of their word for "beast"!

Butch Walker has a song called "Bethamphetamine" which cracks me up.

In the TV show Moonlight - one of the main characters is called Beth Turner.

I love this name! If my name were Elizabeth, I'd go by Beth instead of Lizzy.
-- MtotheK  5/17/2009
I don't like this name at all. It is just so short and dull and kind of just falls flat.
-- jaybird  12/29/2009
My favorite nickname for Elizabeth. It sounds incomplete on its own, so a nickname is the only way I'd ever use it.
-- Black_X  5/29/2010
Elizabeth is my favorite name, and so far my favorite nicknames are Lilly and Beth. My mom hates the name Beth by itself, saying it "rhymes with Death." I suppose it does, but that's not what I'm immediately reminded of. I like Beth.
Who knows, I might just combine them both and call her Lilibeth! :-)

YUCK! Boring as Elisabeth, it is an old person's name.
-- Anonymous User  7/8/2010
I really like the name Beth, Bethan, Bethanny. I like them all.
-- Amy98  10/9/2010
One of the better nicknames for Elizabeth.
-- Chrila96  12/17/2010
This is part of my mom's name, Mary Beth (short for Mary Elizabeth). I like it, it's so sweet and pretty-it's my favorite nickname for Elizabeth! Not a fan of it on its own though.
-- Nina.Matau  1/23/2011
Boring. There are better nicknames for Elizabeth: Lizzie, Eliza, Liza, Liz, Buffy ... The list goes on.
-- Dawson  3/1/2011
This is my mother's name. In her case, it is not a nickname for Elizabeth. I like Beth, but I prefer this name by itself instead of it being a nickname for Elizabeth. The name Beth is due for a comeback now.
-- dwayne1996  8/10/2012
Really only nick name.

Beth Carvalho (born 1946) is a Brazilian samba singer. Her given name is Elizabeth.
-- Buneary  6/5/2013
The name Beth was only given to 47 baby girls born in the US in 2012.
-- Oohvintage  7/19/2013
I thought this name suited a cool, quiet, composed girl when I was a teenager.

Now I think it's too dry by itself and would be better to have a full name and this be the nickname. I also have a friend who's mom is named just Beth and it sounds stuffy. Perhaps it's the way they pronounce it in this state of the U.S.?
-- S4acre  10/13/2014
I 100% hate the name 'Bethany' but I don't mind the name 'Beth'. I think the name Beth makes a great middle name. For example, the combo 'Carly Beth' works really well! =) (There is a character called Carly Beth Caldwell who is in a book called The Haunted Mask by R. L. Stine.) I honestly do think the name Beth is best to be used as a middle though, rather than as a first name. I think it's too short, simple, plain and boring as a first name. :| As a middle name, however, the name Beth is totally super awesome! =)
