Also used in Spanish, but not even close to being as popular as Isabel, which is the Spanish version of Elizabeth. It's pronounced Eh-lee-sah-beh-tah.

Elisabeta is often used in fiction as the name of Vlad the Impaler's first wife (whose real name was never recorded). Historically, she was said to have thrown herself from the summit of Vlad's castle after being warned that invading Turks were about to besiege her. She preferred to commit suicide than be captured by the enemy, and is thought of as a noble character in Romanian history.

In the film Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), this name was pronounced "e-liz-ə-BAY-tə". However, using my knowledge of the Romanian language, I believe that it is properly pronounced "e-lis-a-BET-a" by Romanians.
