My Name is Elizabeth by Annika Dunklee

“My name is Elizabeth! Not Beth, Liz, Lizzie, or even Betsy!” Elizabeth loves her name, it is just perfect for her with its nine letters and the interesting shapes her mouth makes when she says her name. She cannot understand why people want to change it though. In My name is Elizabeth, a young girl named Elizabeth deals with the daily frustration of people trying to shorten her name! I understand this frustration, because ever since the first day of kindergarten people have been trying to change my name. I wonder if Elizabeth’s mother sent her to school with a not saying that her daughter’s name is Elizabeth and if she wanted her called Liz, she would have named her Liz. Maybe that was just my mother then. Elizabeth is quite a character and she is determined to make sure people get her name right! Even if she has to tell them five hundred times…a day!
