Bethan is one of the main characters in Return to Harmony by Janette Oke and T. Davis Bunn.

According the aforementioned book by Janette Oke and T. Davis Bunn, this name is pronounced like Megan.

This is a great name. Could also be used as a nickname for Elizabeth, but is much cooler just as a name!

Bethan is such a pretty name for girl.

I like it! While "The Snow Spider" certainly creeps out generations of young children, it also gives the name an eerie sort of beauty. Not to mention the fact that it has a strong Welsh history and isn't common at all in today's society. Recommended!

This is my middle name, and personally I love it! It's very strong and powerful, but also sweet and feminine. I MUCH prefer it to Bethany! It provides the nicknames Beth, Anne, Ann, Anna, Annie, etc!

Of all the nice Welsh names there are, this is NOT one of them. It does not sound pretty or feminine enough - especially when compared to the millions of other forms of Elizabeth - and it sounds too similar to Bethany, which is common as muck.

Bethan (a traditional Welsh short form of Elizabeth)is a charming name, much nicer imo than Bethany (from the New Testament place meaning "house of figs").
I think Bethan makes a good middle name for a more widely used or frillier name.

Again... this name is in the book Son. I like the book because the names are SO imaginable and ancient, but not too "creative."

Pretty name. Rare but not tacky. Such a shame it's not on any popularity charts west of the Atlantic.

Bethan is my name and I prefer it to Beth and Bethany. It's more unique and I've only come across a couple Bethans.
