User comments for Elisabeth
In Dutch it's pronounced ay-LEE-zah-bet.
Listen to the German pronunciation of Elisabeth here:
I prefer it pronounced eh-liss-u-beth.

It is pronounced EH-LEES-UH-BET. No "th" on the end. That totally destroys it. Pronounce it correctly!
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.
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.
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.
