|I believe she would be Miss Elizabeth Bennet to strangers

in consequence of the missive, I recall ..., penned by gianni
and anyone not a close enough friend or relation to use her first name. She can be addressed as Miss Bennet if Jane is not around so that it's clear who is meant (as Bingley does at Netherfield when Jane isn't in the room "that will have more weight in the argument, Miss Bennet, than you"..."). She's called Miss Elizabeth by Mr. Collins and (I believe) the servants (Mrs. Bennet rang the bell, and Miss Elizabeth was summoned to the library.)
(It makes make crazy when fanfics or adaptions have Darcy calling her “Miss Elizabeth” rather than “Miss Elizabeth Bennet” or “Miss Bennet”.)
