First, some background on the name. Eliza is an English baby name with Hebrew origins, meaning ‘pledged to God’ or ‘God is my oath.’
Although it is sometimes used as a nickname in itself, as a shortened version of the regal baby name Elizabeth, it is also a stand-alone name.
Considered a ‘vintage’ baby name, Eliza is a baby name one that has become more popular in recent years, following the trend for using baby names that were previously considered old-fashioned names.
How we picked our baby name:
It took us ages to pick our Eliza’s name – it was a long process of me suggesting an obscure old lady name and being instantly vetoed by my husband.
Both Alex and I are known by short versions of our names, so we knew we wanted something with nickname potential. After a long process of elimination, we decided to go with Eliza, which is a family name on Alex’s side of the family, one we loved and one we knew had nickname potential.
As always with babies, after a long process of picking a name, it turns out there’s now a million different things we call her, most of which are only tenuously linked to her name. I’m sure even now this list doesn’t include them all, but here goes:
