Origin of first name:
Meaning of the name:
Derived from Elizabeth, coming from the Hebrew elisheba, "God is promise".
In the New Testament, Elizabeth is the mother of St. John the Baptist. Royal as worn by many queens and princesses, Elisabeth is also one of the most prolific names derived from our culture. Taking advantage of the vogue of the diminutives, Elise is one of those who brilliantly take her suite since the nineteenth century, perhaps thanks to the famous Letter to Elise of Beethoven. In the sixteenth century, in English-speaking countries, poets used the form Eliza to evoke Queen Elizabeth. Today in France, Elisa and Elise are more common than Elizabeth.
The Elise are celebrated on November 17th.
Her derivatives: Elisa, Eliza, Lise, Elsa, Else, Elseline, Lisa, Lisbeth, Lison, Lissounia.
