Betty: baby girl name popularity and meaning


A diminutive of the Hebrew name Elizabeth, meaning "pledged to the Lord," Betty is a great transitional name. It's adorable on a little girl, sexy on a grown woman (think Betty Boop or pinup girl Betty Grable), and - as the inimitable Betty White has proven - rockin' far into, well, rocking chair age.


Bet, Etty.

Famous people named Betty:

Author Betty Friedan; actresses Betty White and Betty Grable; model Bettie (born Betty) Page; former First Lady Betty Ford; Olympic runner Betty Cuthbert.

Fun fact:

A "betty" was once used as a slang word for an attractive girl.
