NAME FINDER

Bethany

house of figs
ORIGIN: Hebrew
POPULARITY: 868
You may have first heard this name because of reality TV’s Bethenny Frankel, but this similarly pronounced name actually has a history that goes much farther back than the 21st century. According to biblical accounts, Bethany was the name of the village where Jesus spent Holy Week before heading to nearby Jerusalem (to be crucified). This pretty name was a particular favorite in the 1970s and 1980s but is not in heavy use today, which gives it an air of originality.
