Elizabeth is my favorite. My favorite nns for Elizabeth are Beth or Betty; of your choices I would choose Ella or perhaps you would like Elle? I like Tess better but I don't really think of that as an Elizabeth nn. If you decide on Elise--which is also pretty--it might be a better idea to use the Elisabeth spelling. Libby doesn't appeal to me for a few reasons--sounds lispy or babyish; sounds like a slur for a liberal.
