    • Per her autobiography, White was named "Betty" at birth not "Elizabeth" because her parents did not want her to be saddled with any of the nicknames and derivatives of Elizabeth -- i.e. Beth, Liza, Ellie, etc. Ironically, shortly after Betty's birth, her mother started calling her Bets, a nickname she developed from the simple name her husband and she had carefully chosen for their daughter.
