OTHER SCRIPTS:

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
afro-asiatic > semitic > central semitic > hebrew
ORIGIN:
hebrew 
NAME ROOT:
ʾēL ‎SH'VU'A > 'ĔLı̂YSHEBA‛ > ELISHEVA
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
ʾēL ‎(אֵל) SH'VU'A ‎(שְׁבוּעָה) ELISHEVA (אלישבע) ELISáBET (Ελισάβετ)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Biblical Greek “Elisábet (Ελισάβετ)”, a form of the Hebrew name Elisheva ('ĕlı̂ysheba‛), which in turn is composed of two elements: the “ʾēl” (God, the God of Israel) plus “sh'vu'a (sh-b-ʿ)” (oath). In turn the name means “my God is an oath, my God is abundance”. shavu'ót (plural form) is a Jewish holiday that occurs in the spring, a harvest festival, also commemorating the anniversary of the giving of the Ten Commandments to Moses and the Israelites at Mount Sinai. This name and its variants are spread all over the world. The name appears in the Old Testament as the name of Aaron's wife "Elisheva", and in the New Testament as the name of the wife of the priest Zechariah and mother of John the Baptist. Linked to this root we can find: Elizabeth I, queen regnant of England and Ireland, Elizabeth of Hungary (Erzsébet), princess of the Kingdom of Hungary and Elizabeth of Aragon (Elisabet in Catalan, Isabel in Aragonese), queen consort of Portugal, a tertiary of the Franciscan Order and is venerated as a saint of the Roman Catholic Church.
