Eliza is a fresh and delightful take on the classic Elizabeth, and clearly we’re not the only ones who think so. This little name that could has been on the rise since the 1980s and doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. One also can’t help but associate the moniker with Audrey Hepburn’s sassy Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady—which may just add to its appeal.
