Bethel

Bethel is the name of a town in the Old Testament, meaning “house of God” made up from Hebrew beth (house) and el (God), both of which derive from a Proto-Semitic origin.

Bethel is also a Welsh surname, an anglicized form of ab Ithel meaning “son of Ithael”, Ithael coming from Old Welsh Iudhail meaning “bountiful lord”.

Origin: Hebrew, Proto-Indo-European
