Betani is not my real name. That's Elise. When I signed up at Etsy, I was a buyer only, and Betani is a commonly used handle for me. When I decided to open a shop and found out that I couldn't change my username, I just worked it into my shop name.
Going further back, the origin of Betani stems back a few years ago. I always had disdain for my name being mispronounced all the time. I always thought Bethany was a pretty name, and sometimes wished my name was simpler like that. When we bought the online role-playing game Everquest, I created a character and wanted to use the name Bethany, but in order to stay in character with the lizard people, I needed it to sound more exotic. So, Bethany morphed into Betani, with the accent on the 'a'.
So, Betani has since become my more adventurous alter-ego. And since starting an Etsy shop took much courage for me, and has been an adventure in and of itself, I think it fits quite nicely.
