Meaning:God is satisfaction
Even if you’re not a musical theater fan, you’ve likely heard of Eliza Doolittle from “My Fair Lady." Or maybe you know it because of “Bring It On” actress Eliza Dushku. Either way, it’s a name worth remembering. This abbreviated form of Elizabeth (from the Hebrew Elisheva, or "God is satisfaction") dates to the 16th century; 200 years later, it stood on its own as a first name. Tracing it to the name of Hungarian and Portuguese saints has given Eliza even more popularity.
