Elizabeth vs. First name vs. Middle name

The girls name Elizabeth has been growing on me lately but I do have a few problems with it. The main thing is, if I was to use it I don’t know whether to use it as a first or middle name. I feel like it is always used as a filler middle name and it is a shame. Secondly, if I use it as a first name, I am worried it would be shortened to a nickname I don’t like such as Liz or Eliza or Betty etc. I quite like Libby as a nickname though. Do you think Elizabeth works best as a first or middle name? Thanks for voting/comments~ G

I love it as a first name!
It’s beautiful and such a truly timeless name.
I think if you tell people right off the bat that her nickname will be Libby then others will follow your lead and you won’t have to worry about the other nicknames.
Actually one of my friends has a Daughter Elizabeth (she’s 8 now) and in their case they wanted the nickname Lizzie.They told everyone that and it’s worked out fine.In all the time I’ve known them I’ve never heard anyone call her by any of the other possible nicknames.It’s always been either her full name or Lizzie.

Personally, I prefer it as a middle name, especially if it’s one of those names you really don’t like a nickname for. Plus, I find it a bit boring as a first name.
