I love Bettina, it's very cute. My friend is called Bettina but for her it's either Betty or Tina because she doesn't seem to think the same.

This is my name, and on the whole I like it, although people will try to call me Betty, which sounds like an old lady, or Tina, which I just don't like.

In the Betsy-Tacy books by Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy is called "Bettina" by her sister Julia.

Like Sabrina, this name sounds ultra-feminine to me, like the name of a girl who grows up dressing up like a little princess and wears pink, frilly, cutesy outfits well into her twenties. It's not a bad name, it is pretty, like Sabrina is, but it sounds like the name of a stereotypically girly young woman or little girl. It's not exactly a bimbo-ish name, just really feminine.

In Denmark it is pronounced 'betTinae' or 'biTtinae'. Almost the same as the German but without the '-ar' ending.

Bettina can also be spelled as Betina or Betinna. All are pronounced the same way.
A close but rare namesake is Bettine, where the I is pronounced 'ee'.

This name makes me think of "The Muppet Christmas Carol" when Mrs. Cratchet (Miss Piggy) kept confusing her twin daughters Bettina and Belinda. XD

This is a top 1000 name in The Netherlands. It was used most in the late '60s and early '70s, after which its popularity steadily decreased.
