The only 2 things that come to mind when I hear this name are Bette Midler and Bette Porter from The L Word...I DO NOT like the character Bette on The L Word and when I think of Bette Midler, I just get a flashback of my brother, sister, and I making one of those music videos to "Wind Beneath My Wings" at our theme park back in '91...
