Middle name would be Rose

I've always found it to look somehow "unfinished"! Beth is pretty, as is Bethany.

Good name. In knew a Bethan at school and she was a lovely person. It's a bit "stronger" than either Beth or Bethany imo.

Its a lovely name and I think its one of those names that is both pretty and quite strong sounding and will suit any personality.

I don't like it, or Bethany. Much prefer just Beth.

I find it a bit unfinished too almost as though it's short for something,
Was it originally a mn for Elizabeth?

I prefer Elizabeth or Bethany.

It's very popular in my area for teenagers-twenties.

Bethany - not Betjan wink

It's a great Welsh name, plus it's my daughters name.

Its the welsh diminutive form of elizabeth. so much the same as Beth or Betty.

i like it, pronounced Beth-an, not Beth-un as often happens.
