This name is a diminutive form such as Elizabeth, Elisabeta, Elisabeth, Elizaveta, Elżbieta and Yelizaveta, derived from the Ancient Greek name Elisávet (Greek: Ελισάβετ), which is a form of the Hebrew name Elisheva "'Elı̂ysheba‛", meaning “my God is an oath, my God is abundance”. This name is also linked to the Latin root (līlĭum) “lily flower”. Over time some names were mixed and they are part of both roots. 1) Princess Lilian was a Welsh-born fashion model who became a member of the Swedish royal family through her 1976 marriage to Prince Bertil, Duke of Halland (1912–1997). 2) Princess Lilian of Belgium (1916–2002) best known as Lilian, Princess of Réthy, was the second wife of King Leopold III of the Belgians.
