Elizabeth? vs. Yes vs. No

I like Elizabeth for my baby girl, but I’m concerned b the numerous nicknames. It’s not that I don’t like them, it’s just that I prefer Elizabeth as a name on its own - I think the nicknames kind of spoil it. How do I stop people from shortening Elizabeth to Libby, Lizzie, Betsy, Bess, etc? Or should I go with a much shorter name with no nicknames? I also like Alice and Grace. Should I go with one of these or stick with Elizabeth?

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
