I think the name Betty is a beautiful name. My grandma who just recently passed away was named Betty.

There are so many Bettys. Betty Boop, Betty Crocker (the cookbooks), Betty Grable (the actress/WWII pin-up girl), The Betty Ford Clinic ...

I love the name Betty! I don't think of old women, I think of sexy 40's bombshells like Betty Paige!

Cute. Betty was also the underage nurse in Pearl Harbour, who sadly didn't make the bombings.

In a story I am writing Betty is a young war nurse. I think it is a very nice name, and it's fine for a full name.

I think Betty would sound delightfully refreshing on a young girl (especially amidst the sea of trendy "names" like Jayden, Nevaeh, Mackenzie, Makayla, etc.). ♥

It's odd because in one way I think of old ladies sitting in a hall playing Bingo, yet in another way I picture a flamboyant young girl. I like this name, especially in its own right.

I think it's very cute and sweet. Also a cute nickname for Elisabeth.

Not so long ago Betty seemed like a hopeless old lady name, but now I find that it's been out of favor long enough that it could make a revival. It's really a very cute name, and on a young girl I don't think it would matter anyone how popular it was seventy years ago.

We are naming our daughter (due in August) Betty Claire. We've gotten a lot of weird reactions, but I think it's an adorable name ready for its comeback.

Betty White, American actress. "Betty" is her real name.

My Gramdmother's name is Betty and my mother's name is Betty. My mother chose to name me Lissette, it means the same as Elizabeth also the same as Betty. It was too common back in the day. But I would agree with some of the other comments. It might be cute now. Also in the surf areas women are known as betties, kinda cute and way better than saying chicks.

By many accounts, the girls started the Salem witch trials, which eventually resulted in the hangings of 19 people. She is also a character in Arthur Miller's play on the subject, The Crucible.

When I think "Betty", I think of Frank Spencer's wife Betty Spencer from Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em, which was a British 70's sitcom. I like this name. :)

I think it's cute, in an old-fashioned studious kind of way.
-- LullabyMoon11  9/24/2010
I think it's adorable and I agree with the comment that it would sound really fresh on a little girl! My paternal grandma was named Betty. :)
-- Chrila96  1/16/2011
I more likely prefer Betty on its own instead of it being a nickname for Elizabeth. I think Betty is a sweet name, but I wouldn't probably use it. I would rather use Betsy, which is probably better than this name.
