Liza is also commonly used in the country of Georgia, where it is a short form of ელისაბედ (Elisabed). Yes, the Georgians use ლიზა (Liza) instead of ლისა (Lisa), which is what you would expect based on the spelling of Elisabed. For some reason, all Georgian abbreviations and diminutives derived from Elisabed have a -z- instead of an -s-. [noted -ed]- (in Georgian)

The same principle applies to Facebook, although I would pair the name with that of a major Georgian city on there (such as "Tbilisi" or "Batumi"), lest the search results get too cluttered with non-Georgian bearers.
Super pretty.
My parents really loved the name Liza, hence that's my name. Back growing up and attending school, the teachers and friends were always pronouncing my name wrong and everyone used to laugh, I would never correct them though, but now as an adult I really love my name, my name is pronounced Lee-za, people repeat Lisa, and I say no, it's Liza with a z! And they're always astonished and compliment my name. I now have the confidence to correct my name if it's mispronounced.

My name is Liza, and I think its unique, but I also find it kind of harsh. I also HATE it when I get called Lisa. It's Liza with a Z not Lisa with and S, and it's LI instead of LEE. Not that hard people. My real name is Elizabeth, but I have never, nor will never go by it, I find it pretentious. If I were to pick another nickname it would probably be Betsy, although I'm pretty sure I would get sick of that soon :)
