Meaning:God's promise; God is my oath
Bettie is a shortened form of the girl’s name Elizabeth, which is the anglicized version of the Hebrew Elisheva, meaning “God is my oath.” It may also mean “God’s promise.” This much-loved biblical name has inspired many variants and shortened forms, including Elisabeth, Eliza, Liz, Beth and Isobel, as well as Bettie. Bettie is more commonly spelled Betty, which stayed at second place in the baby names for an impressive five years from 1929 to 1934. This adorable retro name may be making a comeback, thanks to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively choosing it for their third daughter. Taylor Swift even named her song betty after little Betty Reynolds, which is sure to popularize the name even more. Bettie is an equally sweet, but less common, spelling of the name, which is ideal if you want something a little different.
