Meaning:God is my oath; Chosen by God
Elspeth is a rare name for the rest of the world, almost exclusive to Scotland, England, and Australia. As a unique form of Elizabeth from the Hebrew Elisheva, Elspeth is typically given to girls. Meaning “God is my oath” and “chosen by God,” Elspeth lends a lofty title for those connected to their spirituality and religion. Though a hidden treasure not borne by many, Elspeth inspires greatness—just look at the 1970s and 80s British actress Elspeth Gray, or author Elspeth Huxley, who wrote The Flame Trees of Thika, as well as the fashion designer Elspeth Gibson, to name a few. Elspeth has a remarkable repertoire of notable bearers—only baby could hold a candle to this distinct name’s legacy.
