I've heard this name pronounced like the word "beat".

Bette Midler is actually named after Bette Davis, although they pronounce it differently - Midler with one syllable, Davis with two.

Bette is the title of the 2nd book in The Women of Ivy Manor series by Lyn Cote.

I think this is a great nickname for Elizabeth. Since there are so many people named Elizabeth, I think it'd be a good way for someone named Elizabeth to make their name more unique from the others. "Liz," "Beth," and "Betty" are used all the time, so I think it'd be nice to hear something different from that.

I really love this name especially with this spelling, though I never think of it as a variant of Elizabeth.

It's too plain and minimalist for my taste. It's not atrocious, but dreadfully boring it is.

I agree with slight night shiver; it's not an ugly name, but it's not very exciting.
