Comments for LIBBY:

In the book Loving Libby by Robin Lee Hatcher, Libby is a nickname for Olivia. But I personally like it best as a nickname for Elizabeth.

I always thought Libby was short for Olivia.

It certainly can be for Olivia if people want it to be--but it originated as a nickname for Elizabeth, circa, I think, the early 20th century.

If Libby was only used in the 20th century, why it in the Top 1000 during the 19th century?

Libby is the nickname for Elizabeth. Livy is the nickname for Olivia.

It doesn't really sound like the short form of Elizabeth (just like Buffy). I personally thought it was short for Liberty. Make sense?

My name is Libby, and mostly I like it. The only trouble is that people are always telling me "I've got a dog called Libby", etc. Other than that, I love it!

This can also be a nickname for Liberty.

I really like this as a nickname for Elizabeth! I've always loved the name Elizabeth, but I never liked any of the other nicknames (Liz, Lizzie, Elle, Ellie, Beth, etc.). For some reason though, I really like Libby!

Bleurgh, this nickname is so ugly, annoying, and infantile.

I love this name! Much prettier and less used than Elizabeth. :D

Reminds me of the country Libya.

Originally Libby was derived from "Ibb" - a pet form of Isabel, another form of Elizabeth. That explains the "ibby" sound in it, which is not heard in the name "Elizabeth" and which might otherwise seem inexplicable.

Ibb has been used since the Middle Ages, so this seemingly modern-sounding name actually has quite a long history. [noted -ed]

I love this name, but it reminds me of that horrific store, Libby Lu.

I really like this name. It's cute. I think it also works as a nickname for Olivia or Liberty.

My best friend's name is Elizabeth, and everyone calls her Libby. I can't see it as a nickname for anything else, and I think it is the best nickname for Elizabeth. When I was little, I'd call her Elibbybeth. Cute :)

I think this name is okay on it's own, but it sounds really great if it has a good surname behind it, such as: Taylor, Cole, Carter, Kingsley, Dawson, and so on are all pretty good names to back up the name Libby, in my opinion.
-- CarefullySoaring  10/31/2012
I like this diminutive. I saw a woman being called "Libbeh" and "Libba."
-- SEC908  12/28/2012
This is an adorable nickname for a little girl named Elizabeth :) I like it as a nickname for Isabel too, I never thought of that. It definitely beats Izzy, that's for sure!

Ugh, this name is so infantile and shallow- sounding. I guarantee that you will never meet a Libby who isn't shallow and irritating. It's awful for anyone over the age of 10.. Libby the doctor? Libby the lawyer? I think not. Maybe Libby the preschool teacher. Better keep it at Elizabeth/Olivia/Liberty when her 10th birthday comes.

My best friend is called Liberty and we call her Libby for short. I have always loved the name Libby, it sounds so beautiful and strange, though I never knew it could be short for Elizabeth.
