Late 16C English Given Names: Notes on Eliza

Late Sixteenth Century English Given Names

Notes on the name Eliza

Eliza: The full name is Eliza ap William Lloyde, of Ruedog, Llanvawer, Merionethshire. This is probably not an instance of ap used with a woman's name, but rather an instance of the man's name derived from early Welsh Elisedd and discussed in MM at Elis. The same name appears in a slightly different spelling in William ap Richard ap Elizey, of Gwythelwerne, Merionethshire.
