This could be a spunky and cute alternative to the kind of old and retired Ethel.

I really like Bethel. With Bethany being so popular, and I don't think Bethan is very feminine, then I think Bethel is great. It sounds sweet and girly (reminds me of Petal) and I think it looks pretty as well.

Could be nice, but I think the 'Ethel' sound is a bit much. It sounds just like that very name which we associate with old ladies. Also, I think this name kind of lacks femininity.

In Job's Daughters, the meeting place/room is called a "Bethel"; also, each individual chapter is called a Bethel (for instance, Bethel #1 or Bethel #77).

I agree. It's a good variant on Ethel. It has better nicknames too.

My guess would be that the popularity of this name and the era it was popular is partially due to the popularity of the name Ethel.
