Actually, the original Hebrew form of Elizabeth was Elisheva, not Elisheba.

I have heard that the meaning of the name is "consecreted to God". I especially like this interpretation.

Elisheva (Elisabeth) was a wife of Aharon in Old Testament and mother of Yohanan the Baptist in the new one.

The name has more than one meaning, two that I know of are:
"God is my oath" and "Sheba is my God".

The word שׁבע (sheba) is a verb that means "to take an oath, to swear". The word שֶׁבַע means "seven" (which has the connotation of abundance). The word אֱלִ means "my God".
