Other Origin(s):Greek
Meaning:Foreign; God's promise
If Elizabeth or Barbara sound too formal for your little munchkin, try out the adorable nickname, Babette. Cute, playful, and totally retro, this choice is rooted in Greek and French and means "foreign" and "God's promise." Although Babette was all the rage during the 1960s, it is now delightfully rare! As for role models, this name is shared with the quirky and dependable neighbor of Lorelei and Rory in the much-beloved TV show Gilmore Girls.
