    Betrys

    Welsh form of Beatrice. Like? Dislike? Why?
    Which do you like more: Betrys or Betony?
    Thanks!

    I want to love Betrys but it feels like you are mispronouncing Beatrice or choosing a yooneek spelling. (at least to my German-American) ears. I dislike Betony no real reason why, I just do.

    It sounds horrible but I reminds me of 'beetroot' - and I'm not sure why that would be, because it's not even pronounced the same. But sorry. I like Beatrice (obviously), Beatriu and Beata/Beate though! Good luck.

    And Betony I have an an insane dislike for, along with Bethany/Betheny etc. I'm sorry for being so harsh!
