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

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!

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.

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!)
i love it

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.
