I think Eliza is an adorable name. It's great as a nickname for Elizabeth, as well as being great on its own. I think a good middle name for Eliza is Amelia: Eliza Amelia.

Perhaps because of the Pygmalion/My Fair Lady association, this name has a very spunky quality, but it is classic enough to suit a woman throughout her life.

I'm pretty sure Eliza was the name of the girl on The Thornberrys, a show that was on Nickelodean about 5 or 6 years ago.

I love the name Eliza- I use it for one of my role playing characters. It fits well for a child, as well as a nickname for Elizabeth (which I also love), yet it doesn't sound to childish for adults.

Yes, Eliza is the name of the main character in the show 'The Wild Thornberries' on Nick.

Also, a funny little piece of information, my character's name is 'Eliza Spencer', though not named after Lady Eliza Victoria Spencer, but after 'Spencer Hale', a character from a movie, and Spencer, the crazy older brother on iCarly. (Yes, I know that I'm strange.)

It's also used in Poland and Romania, probably as a form of Elisa.

A famous bearer is the American actress Eliza Dushku, who played the rogue slayer Faith Lehane on 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' and 'Angel'. She also plays Echo on Joss Whedon's newest show, 'Dollhouse'. Eliza is a very lovely name, and I like it paired with Kendall.

Eliza Darling was the wife of New South Wales Governor, Ralph Darling.

Mount Eliza, the hill which overlooks Perth in Western Australia, is named after her.

There is also a bronze statue of a diving woman in Matilda Bay which is named "Eliza" after the hill.

The suburb of Darlinghurst in Sydney is also named after her.

I secretly always wanted to be called this because my middle name is Elizabeth, but no one ever did haha. I think it's pretty and spunky.

I've heard it pronounced:
EE-lies-uh
A-lies-uh
I-lies-uh

I think this name works better on its own, rather than a nickname and that it would look cute on a girl of any age.

My name is Eliza and I'm very grateful to be called something so lovely. I rarely have any problems with people spelling or pronouncing it wrong and people often compliment me on it. Eliza just seems to have a fresh feel complimented by the weight of an actual history, all of which come together nicely.

Basically I wholeheartedly recommend it if you are planning on calling your child that, it's a great name to have.

Modern yet sophisticated at the same time- I like it! ^^

My name is Eliza Jo actually. The only bad thing about it is I was born in 94' so all through school everyone called me Eliza Thornberry. But other than that it's a very unique name and I never have to worry when they're calling roll if they mean me or someone else. I went to school with 4 Ashleys and when the role got called they all would raise their hand at once.
