  1. My daughter’s is name is Bethia, because of the good meaning it carries we decided to name her that name, she also loves so much.

  2. I have 3 aunt Bethia’s (great-aunt, cousin and father’s sister) and named my daughter Bethia. At fifteen, she is not so fond of her “unusual” name, but I hope it will carry on through the family.
