The name Elizabeth has its roots in the Bible in the Hebrew name Elisheva (meaning, “my God is an oath”). When the name was translated into Greek, it became Elisabet, leading to its current form of Elizabeth. In the Old Testament, we first meet an Elizabeth (Elisheva) as the wife of Aaron. In the New Testament, Elizabeth was Mary’s cousin and the mother of John the Baptist.
The name Elizabeth was extraordinarily popular in England prior to the founding of the Thirteen Colonies. The name came over to the United States with the original colonists and has remained at the top of the popularity charts ever since. Just as in England, the name has many, many popular variations—including Elisa, Eliza, Ella, Ellie, Elyse, Isabel, Isabella, and Lisa.
There are a wealth of famous people named Elizabeth—in fact, perhaps, some of the most famous people in the world. Consider, for example, Queen Elizabeth II of England, who has been the reigning monarch since 1952. Her namesake, Queen Elizabeth I of England, was the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, and reigned from 1558 to 1603. This tradition of royalty translates to one of the true queens of the American screen: Elizabeth Taylor. And who doesn’t wish they could wiggle their nose and make things happen like Elizabeth Montgomery, Samantha of Bewitched!
