I saw this name in a book I read and I thought it was pronounced like bet-uh-nee lol (that's the best way I could put that lol). I honestly think it sounds better. But I like it either way. :]

Well, the name itself isn't bad, but the first time I saw it I though about "the one made of beton" than of a herb.

Pliny descends the etymology from the Gaulish name of a Spanish tribe, the Vettones, to whom its discovery is attributed. Betony symbolizes surprise in the language of flowers, and so might make a fitting first or middle name for an unplanned but much wanted daughter.

In my dictionary the name of the plant is pronounced bet-uh-nee.
There's an English historian called Bettany Hughes - it's hard to tell whether her name is a version of Betony, Bethany, or Bet Annie!

Desperately underused.

I don't like how this name looks. I like the pronunciation even less. This name is better suited for the recycling bin.

There's a character named Betony in the Divide Trilogy by Elizabeth Kay.
