A form of Bethan, Bethann is a feminine Welsh name that ultimately derives from the Greek and Hebrew Bethany. Bethann takes on the meaning “house of figs” from the biblical place name Bethany. In the New Testament, Bethany is a village where siblings Mary, Martha, and Lazarus live. In the Gospel of John, Bethany is where Jesus miraculously brought Lazarus back to life. Bethann may also be a blend of Beth and Ann, lending the meanings “God is my oath” and “grace” to this already pious title. A recent evolution of an ancient name, Bethann equips baby for the future while maintaining its timeless beauty.
