Comments for MARYBETH:

This name is often times spelled MARIBETH rather than MARYBETH.

My daughter is named "Maribeth", and I've had so many people tell me how pretty and unique it is spelled that way. We like to pronounce it with the short "i" sound, but most people still say the "ee" sound. So far, she loves her name.

I much prefer the spelling Meribeth, only because -to me- MaryBeth seems a little too much like Mary Elizabeth, but I like this name no matter how you spell it. It has a very sweet and classy edge to it. But I have met around 7 Meribeths (or MaryBeths if you'd prefer), so I think the name is getting slightly popular, but I still think I might use it if I ever have another child. Although, I'm not sure what kind of middle name I would give her.

I know a very nice girl named Maryelisabeth who goes by this name. The full name may sound pretentious to some, but if you knew her you'd know she's anything but pretentious. I like Marybeth both as a standalone name and as a nickname for Maryelisabeth.

This name is pretty enough, I suppose, although there are so many consonants! It's good short for Mary Elisabeth, I guess.
I prefer my creation Marabeth, pronounced "mahr-ah-BETH"

This name is too common where I live. I think it's more of a Southern name. And I don't really like it, honestly. I think Annabeth sounds prettier.
