i didn't like my name when i was five, i vowed to change it. but now that i'm older it's grown on me...there's really nothing i could think of replacing it. yeah, the meaning my mother got when she named me was 'house of joy' however i have seen variations on it. but i did research and it was a town mentioned where jesus resided, so i'm guessing that's why it was 'house of joy'. the comment of 'house of figs' is funny to me, but either way i think it's a good name.

06/02/2023 01:27:50

I was named Bethany, after my grandmother Beth and the area 'Bethany' in the Bible near Bethlehem. There are other names that I think sound more melodious, but i've always loved this one as It's so personal to my family. The actual translation of the name from Hebrew, "House of the Poor", Isn't very nice, but as I'm the'sixth child of the family, It's not totally irrelevant.(haha) I don't like being called Beth, but Bethy is nice to me IF It's someone I'm close to.

My little girls name is Bethany. It wasn't until this year that I actually learned that Bethany was the town where Jesus stayed just before the crucifixion. My daughter is 6 now. She came home from Sunday school and was so excited about her name being in the bible. The discovery got her tuned into the story and study of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I am truly blessed with her and I thank the Lord for sending me the unique name even when I was a lost sinner. Thank you JESUS! (She also gets called Brittany and Stephanie!)

My name is Bethany. I disliked the name quite a bit growing up, but love it now (I'm 27). It is unique, and I always get compliments on how beautiful it is. One thing to note is that people often call me Britney, Stephanie, even'tiffany. People often assume that I go by Beth, which bugs me. My school friends still call me "B", which I don't mind so much.

05/19/2023 11:14:50

My name is Bethany, and quite honestly I think there are betters ones to fit me. It's a pretty name and all, but I can't say that It's very... me. Plus, people always call me Stephanie, which is stupid. By the way, I'm also African American. All the Bethany's i've met are white. xD

05/17/2023 03:06:52

My name is Bethany and I like it. You never have to worry about being Bethany K. of Bethany U. My mom's name is Beth, so whenever'someone calls me that I get kind of annoyed. Some of the girls at my school call me Betty. Some other nicknames you could use are Ann, Annie, and Thanny.

05/03/2023 13:46:46

I don't understand why people think that when we say our name that is is Brittany? Stephanie I can understand because it rhymes, but Brittany?!?!?!?! I don't understand this!

04/28/2023 17:41:36

i LOVE my name! i have never met any other bethany's, but people are always telling me of sister's-brother's-mother's-ex-boyfriend's-cousin's who have this name... please name your beautiful baby girl's this and they'll grow up to be proud of it. i heard that it meant "house of figs" but the other definitions are nicer! i think it's a great name anyway, except when people call me brittany :( there's no-one who's named bethany that puts a bad word to our name, so it's the PERFECT name! (i may be a bit too passionate about my name hehe) xxx

It's my name! And I absolutely adore it! It really bothers me when teachers call me Beth, cause that's NOT my name! I also really love my middle name! I think Bethany Rose has a good flow to it and I'm proud that it's mine :) I've never been called Brittany, but I am called Stephanie A LOT! Oh well, just the way things go.

12/15/2022 05:19:26

I really like my name. I was never the Jenny or Amy that had to use their last initial in school. I was the only Bethany all through school, which was great. People always told me that I had a beautiful name. On the phone, people do assume "Stephanie", but that's a little thing.

12/15/2022 01:47:50

I like my name now but I didn't when I was a kid. I was born in 1987 so very few people had the name then. I used to change my name a lot as a kid. I went by Beth until high school but then I decided to go to by Bette.

11/11/2022 05:29:18

I'm 23 years old and I've always liked my name. I have the same problem a lot of you have though. I get called Brittany a lot or Stephanie and people are always having me spell it which is silly to me because it's in the Bible. A lot of people say they haven't heard it before. It's easy enough for me

09/29/2022 19:09:48

A scholar of Aramaic from the University of Chicago told me Bethany means "house of poverty" or "house of humility." I like my name, except people often'think I am calling from a church or a hospital.

09/08/2022 14:26:30

My name's Bethany, but I go by Beth. I personally don't like it, makes me sound to girly and weak. I go by Beth, so at least It's easy to get a nick name out of.

06/18/2022 09:15:36

My name is Bethany... I love it.. of course I can't get stuff with my name on it but i doesn't matter.

06/07/2022 05:09:54

I love the name Bethany. It's a beautiful name, and it has a beautiful meaning, "The abiding place of God" after the'small town in Israel where Mary and Martha lived. This should prove to be very special to anyone who has been fortunate enough to have been given'this name or use this for their own daughter.

01/02/2022 16:52:48
