What Does Lilibet Mean?

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex welcomed the newest addition to their family on June 4, 2021: Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. The unique first name pays homage to Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

Queen Elizabeth has held the nickname Lilibet since she was a child. It came about as a result of how the then-princess mispronounced her own name as a young girl. Lilibet originates from the Hebrew name Elisheba, which means "God is my oath."

  • Origin: The name Lilibet is derived from the biblical name Elisheba.
  • Gender: Lilibet is most commonly used as a girl's name.
  • Pronunciation: lily-bet

Although many baby names are separated by gender, Verywell Family believes that sex does not need to play a role in your name selection process. It’s important to select a name that you feel suits your new baby the best.
