Though I am generally a fan of nicknames, I really like that this book talks about consent when coming up with nicknames for people in one's life. There is definitely importance in calling someone what they want to be called. A great story introducing that idea.

This isn’t just a book about one particular name. It’s about making it clear to the world who you really are. A lesson some grown-ups could stand to learn as well.

This book is simply great. About a girl who loves her full name: E-LIZ-A-BETH, and nothing shorter, thank you.

Elizabeth loves her name. Who wouldn’t? It has a lot of advantages, like length and how it sounds when you work the syllables out of your mouth. The downside? Everyone just gives you whatever nickname they think suits you. If it’s not Lizzy then it’s Beth. If it’s not Liz then it’s something “Not. Even. Close.” like Betsy. At last Elizabeth can take it no longer. To the general world she declares her full name (“Elizabeth Alfreda Roxanne Carmelita Bluebell Jones”) or Elizabeth if you like. Finally, everyone gets it right. Even her little brother (though she might bend the rules a bit for his attempted “Wizabef”).
