I think this is a very misspelled version of Elizabeth.

Elisabeth is not a misspelling of Elizabeth, it's the original spelling. Elizabeth only became the most popular spelling after Queen Elizabeth I took to the the throne of England.

I apologize for my previous input. I like this name, actually. This spelling is quite interesting. I'm just so used to Elizabeth, though. Lovely name, however!

This is a beautiful spelling used by many, including the European Queen Elisabeth of Belgium, wife of Prince Albert in the early 20th century.

I love the name Elisabeth! I like this spelling much better than Elizabeth. I plan to name my first daughter Elisabeth Amelie, possibly Elise as a nickname.

The only daughter of Crownprince Filip (Philip) and Crownprincess Mathilde of Belgium is called: Elisabeth.
― Anonymous User  11/20/2005
I like this name because there are so many nicknames associated with it. My favorites are Betty and Elise.

Bettan is a nickname in Sweden, not used as nice pet name, more old fashioned and bad sounding.

Actress Elisabeth Shue spells it this way.

I respect this spelling of Elizabeth as a variant translation and as the French and German form. It's very pretty, and a little more unusual. I probably would just go with the normal form, Elizabeth, though.

I've also seen this name spelled with an accent in French: Élisabeth.

Perhaps the most notable Élisabeth was Princess Élisabeth Philippine Marie Hélène of France (1764-1794), known as "Madame Élisabeth". She was the younger sister of Louis XVI, Louis XVII, and Charles X. She was guillotined in the French Revolution, some say just because she was Louis XVI's sister.

Empress Elisabeth (1837-1898)was a Bavarian princess who married Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria and became the ruler consort of Austria and the Queen consort of Hungary. Called "Sisi" from a young age, she was known for her influential fashion sense and pristine beauty. Though she was much-loved in Austria and celebrated in Hungary as a great sympathizer to the Hungarian cause, her life was marked by tragedy, including the unsolved murder of her son Prince Rudolf, and spent the last decades of her life wandering Europe aimlessly, until she was stabbed in the heart in a pointless act of violence by a deranged assasin in Geneva, Switzerland. A free yet tragic spirit who abhorred conventional court protocol, she has inspired filmmakers and theatre people alike and has undoubtedly become a 20th century icon, often compared to Princess Diana of England.

My name is Elsebeth and that's the Danish form of Elisabeth. I hate it because everybody thinks my name is Elisabeth, and even in Denmark it's not very common. My family calls me Ellie.
elliebeth  5/5/2006
It's a lovely name. I know four people with this name, and one with Elisabet. They're all great. I don't know anyone with z-s though!
chizzalazty  5/18/2006
In Dutch it's pronounced ay-LEE-zah-bet.
GLynElisabeth  5/20/2006
This is my middle name. Growing up I HATED that my mother spelled it with the "s" rather than the "z". But now that I am grown I prefer it! I like the fact that it was the original spelling, that means a lot to me. I would also like to carry on the name and I will spell it Elisabeth, with the "s" (my kid will probably hate me for it! Meh!)

I love this spelling of the name Elizabeth. I think it has a softer feel to it and reminds me of a flower. I plan to use this as the middle name of a daughter I may have.
glassmidnight  10/1/2006
I think this spelling is much nicer than Elizabeth. I prefer softer spellings and pronunciations of names. I pronounce this spelling Eh-liss-eh-beth, and the Elizabeth spelling Eh-liz-eh-beth.
xHOWTOSAVEALiFE  11/27/2006
I much prefer this spelling to the over-used 'Elizabeth', a 'z' in a name can sound a little harsh, whereas an 's' looks and sounds more dainty and gentle. Same as with xHOWTOSAVEALIFE, I would also pronounce it as it is written and not a 'z' sound. :S

Hi! Just tell you that Elisabeth is used in Catalonia too. I have a friend called Elisabet with no H at the end! People called Elisabet like other people to say Beth, Bet or Eli. Thank you!

I prefer it pronounced eh-liss-u-beth.

My name is Elisabeth. I don't really like the name for myself, but I like it for others. Why don't I like it for myself? Because I don't feel like it matches me. It's a long name and many people write it wrong. I have seen people writing it with a z or with a t instead of th. I really don't like these troubles with my names. My friends call me Eli or Nia (the last name has nothing to do with Elisabeth though).
― Anonymous User  3/8/2007
My daughter who will be three soon is called Elisabeth June. I chose this name because I so love Elizabeth but I wanted her name to be a little more special. I also have a sister named Elisa so it honours her too. Elisabeth is called Bessie because she seems much too little to be an Elisabeth yet! But when she's older she can use it if she ever outgrows Bess.
Ebba  6/3/2007
My name is Elisabeth Anne and I am named after my mother Elizabeth Anne. One must note that there are complications that come up regarding personal information since we are often mistaken for one another and there is no Jr. Or I/II like for male members. I do indeed LOVE the spelling since it is still old fashioned yet different. The nicknames given to me by family and friends have been Lisabeth, Lisbeth, and Lis (L-iss) which is said/sounds as just Liz.

It is pronounced EH-LEES-UH-BET. No "th" on the end. That totally destroys it. Pronounce it correctly!
lunalovegood  1/25/2008
To the person above me. What makes you think that is the way to pronounce it? If this names is spelled Elisabet then I agree it should be pronounced like that but when there's a "th" at the end it should be e-liz-uh-beth like it is spelled. I actually love the "th" sound at the end.
renee06  2/29/2008
I love this name and the spelling of it. Elizabeth with a z feels a bit harsh so I like it better with an s. I plan to use this as a middle name for my first daughter. I love the great namesakes it has, Elizabeth from Pirates, Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice, the Queen of England and it's also the middle name of my favourite actress: Kate Winslet.

This is my middle name and it's not very common which is a positive and I also think it's a pretty name. I would recommend this name to my friends.

Elisabeth is a name for an old hag. It seems like I have to beg my mom to change my name. I hate it so much, like I want to hold it by its legs and throw it out the window, lol.
chocolatebonbon  8/8/2008
My middle name is Elizabeth. I have always hated it with a passion. Now that I'm older, I still despise it as my middle name, but it isn't bad as someone else's name. I have a friend that calls me Eliza Beth. Yuck, lol. I like Elliebeth, it is cute though.

Elisabeth Middelhauve, or Lisa, as she goes by, is the former lead singer of the Gothic Metal band Xandria, one of my favorite bands. I've always hated the name Elizabeth, any way it's spelled. Just an ugly name, in my opinion.
harry_sent_me  10/1/2008
Elisabeth should not be pronounced with a z sound, it needs the s like it is spelled, it is prettier and I really get upset when my name gets confused from the more common Elizabeth.
irish_pixie_19  2/2/2009
I really prefer this to Elizabeth. It just looks softer and more feminine, I don't like the z in Elizabeth.
emmiix3  3/1/2009
I really like this as a middle name, I think it's an interesting twist on the way too common Elizabeth. My middle name is Victoria so I think it would be cool to keep the "royal" sounding names going.
SummerSerenades  8/28/2009
I really like this name. It's a variant of Elizabeth, and not quite as overused. It is beautiful, and I think is much softer than Elizabeth. It's a simply amazing name.

This is one of my names - the one I'm proud of, but never called by. Good nicknames for a girl might be Ellie or Lissy; for an older person, maybe Beth.

Here's something interesting, if you're a Christian and like etymology. In Hebrew, "beth" means "house" and "El" means "God". "El is a Beth" - God is a house, a real home.

But if you like etymology too much, that *won't* sound good because it's fake.
El is a Beth  12/30/2012
Elisabeth is the most classic name and it is so beautiful. I'd like to name a daughter Elisabeth. A plus to this spelling and pronunciation (Eel-liss-uh-beth) is that no one would call you Liz or Lizzie. Elisabeth is a wonderful name.
DestinedAuthor  7/24/2013
We chose this as our daughter Genevieve's middle name. It's an absolutely beautiful name whether its spelled Elizabeth or Elisabeth; we just decided to spell it with an s to make it a little more unique, since Elizabeth is quite a common middle name. The s makes it softer in my opinion, but I have a feeling a lot of people will be spelling it wrong! It's easily correctable though, unlike with many of the 'creative' spellings of names today where people are changing multiple letters or just adding in completely new ones for no reason. If you love Elizabeth but are concerned about how common it is, Elisabeth is an equally gorgeous spelling that not many people use :-)

Having been born in Austria, of course my name is spelled Elisabeth. When I became a naturalized citizen, I had the option of changing my name, but I prefer the original spelling.
Elisabeth of Austria  10/2/2014
My middle name is Elisabeth and it's so much prettier and less harsh than Elizabeth. I am a quarter Dutch so that's where I get the spelling from and I like telling everyone that it's the original spelling of the name! The only problem is that my full name is 22 letters long but it doesn't really matter due to the fact I love my name. Some cute nicknames for Elisabeth could be Lissie, Lisa, Elisa, Isa, Beth, Bea for when they are younger and then when they are older they can be called by their full name. Another good thing about this name is that it's good for both old people and young people and everyone in between, so it's a win win situation as some names like Mia are suitable when they are young but aren't so when they grown up to become older. Sorry for rattling on so much, it's just I love writing!

Princess Elisabeth of Hesse and By Rhine(1895-1903) was the first child and only daughter of Grand Duke Ernst and Princess Victoria. She is the first cousin of the Romanov children (Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, Alexei) She died at age 8 due to typhoid. Her father Ernst was devastated by her death, and considered her the "sunshine of my life".
SH2237  6/23/2015
This is my second given name. It is after my German-born paternal grandmother. After emigrating to the U.S. she changed the spelling to "Elizabeth;" most likely due to convenience. My parents used the German spelling on my birth certificate; not a big deal since almost all my documents only require the middle initial!
Susyhome  8/14/2015
I think I'm liking this spelling variation more than Elizabeth, although I think both are gorgeous. It's just that Elizabeth is so overused (no surprise there, it's beautiful!) Elizabeth is currently #12 while Elisabeth is in the 600's. Plus, I'm not a fan of the nickname Liz. It's not that it's awful or something, just that it's also super popular.
― Anonymous User  9/6/2015
This is how I spell my name, and my parents said they just wanted it to be different. They still pronounce Elisabeth the same way you would pronounce Elizabeth. Also, for example, my nickname is Lissie, but it's still pronounced as Lizzie. Quite honestly, I love it.

The German and Danish pronunciations are listed as e-LEE-zah-bet and e-LEE-sah-bet, respectively, but according to the Pronunciation Guide the third syllable should be -zu- or -su-, maybe -zuh- or -suh-. I wish this site used IPA.

I love Elisabeth. It's so classic, elegant, has plenty of nicknames to choose from, is delicate and unique. However I like Elizabeth too and I can't tell which one I like more. The thing I don't like though is when people pronounce Elisabeth like Elizabeth. I like it pronounced e-LEE-sah-bet the most and that's how I pronounce it, it's a Swedish pronunciation.
mairinn  12/31/2017
Elisabeth is a very beautiful name, with a beautiful meaning. Like one commenter said (Credits to them by the way), I prefer softer name spellings as they just look more feminine and more beautiful, like Stefanie and Elisabeth. Elizabeth I feel just looks improper, like the z doesn’t fit but s does and I love it. Good name, choose this over Elizabeth.
DanielRivera  1/25/2018
As my name is Elisabeth, I love it. I love how unique it is. Especially in America. The problem is that everyone spells it wrong. Including my Grandma and my own siblings at times. I still love it, and all the nicknames it comes with. My favorites are Lizzie, Liz, Izzy, some of my friends even call me Lizbug, my baby brother calls me Sizy, and some even call me Lizard. For some reason I don't like the nickname Beth, apologies to those who do.
