Meaning:Pledged to God; God is my oath
Bessie is a feminine name of Hebrew origin, meaning “pledged to God” or “God is my oath.” This 16th-century nickname was often given to those named Elizabeth or Beatrice, however, its popularity during this time has made it a name in its own right. Although Bessie was a popular choice throughout the late 19th and early 20th century, its decline since then makes it a unique option for parents who wish to pay homage to a timeless classic.
