A diminutive of Elizabeth, this English name meaning “pledged to the Lord,” is a retro classic poised to make a comeback, because that’s what retro things do. Which is why you should keep all your current wardrobe because your Betsy will want to borrow it all as a teenager when it comes back in style.
Bet, Bets, Betty.
Famous people named Betsy:
American revolutionary figure (and seamstress of the first flag) Betsy Ross; Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos; Broadway actresses Betsy Wolfe and Betsy Morgan; pro golfer Betsy King.
There’s a 1978 movie called The Betsy.
