Bethani can be a beacon of hope in even the darkest of times. This feminine name is a variant of Bethany, and both take the meaning of “house of figs” or “house of affliction” from their Hebrew origins, stemming from the Greek Bēthaníā. Although the latter meaning offers dark images, its connection to faith provides rays of positivity. Bethany is where Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead the week before his crucifixion, making Bethani a potent symbol of belief and new life.
