- Comments and insights on the name Aliza: | Edit
I was always under the impression that Eliza is a derivation of Elizabeth meaning "consecrated to God". It can be used as an independent name. Perhaps you were thinking of the name Aliza (pronounced Ah-Lee-zah) which comes from the Hebrew and probably means joyful, but Eliza, although sounding like Aliza has a different meaning as stated above.
PRONOUNCED: ah-LEE-zah, ah-LEE-sah

- Personal experiences with the name Aliza: | Edit
I love this name I named my daughter Alyza Grayce. I pronounce it as "uh-Lize-Uh. It is such a pretty name and is similar to my name which I love, my name is Alyssa (uH-Liss-uh). I think the y makes it more unique and pretty. Plus I was given a y instead of a I so I wanted my daughter to have a y too.

Note to the writer: I disagree with the meaning you have chosen for the name Eliza. It derives from Elizabeth. Aliza (beginning with an A) probably has the meaning you suggest, but I maintain Eliza is a different name from Aliza.
