In Polish, the "z" in this name is supposed to have a little dot over it. I have heard this name pronounced "Elzh-bYEH-tah."

I know a woman named Elzbieta (sorry, I don't know how to do the dot over the Z) and my mom (Elizabeth) and she were comparing the differences. The only letter that they have different is the "h" in Elizabeth.

Other variants of the name:
Elka, Elżunia, Elcia, Eli, Eliś, Elunia, Elisia

I'm often called Eli and Elisia, but that's rather rare in usage ;)

One of the central characters of The Trumpeter of Krakow is named Elzbietka. I believe this is a diminutive of Elzbieta, though that is never actually stated.
