Personal experiences with the name Bethany:

my name is Bethany Marie. It's an okay name. I like some things about it, and I hate some things about it.
Pros: Bethany means Daughter of the King which makes me a princess supposedly. My name also means house of figs. I guess that's okay. I like figs. My niece and nephew call me aunt bunny, which is cute.
Cons: People come up with the stupidest nicknames. If I wanted to be called 'bethy-boo' I would say so. Plus, for some reason I hate the nickname Beth too.
The spelling 'Bethany' is pretty plain. If you want to name your kid Bethany, go with a cuter spelling like 'Bethanie' or 'Bethanee' I'm 16.
