The "Nederlandse Voornamen Databank", to be found here:
gives Bregje as as form of Brecht, and that in turn as a short form of various names containing the name element "brecht" which is also in the database here, cognate of the English word "bright".
For Behati I could not find reliable info, only some hints that it may derive from (or be a variant of) the Swahili word bahati, probably meaning "luck":
Anyway, if you search for the given model, you quickly see that her name is written in both forms, Behati and Bahati. Maybe that wants to tell us something, or maybe not - maybe people just are not sure about the spelling...
