Ancient Hebrew term or phrase: Beth-el
The word(s) in question are being used as a name for an individual. I believe it is in some way similar to a translation of Elizabeth which I have been told means something like el-lizard-birth, although the "el" i'm sure must have a meaning.

Beth-el
Explanation:
I'm not sure this is what you're looking for, but there are many references in the Web with Beth-el meaning "house of God". Here are a few:

http://www.ishwar.com/holy_tanakh/book01/book01_035.html

And Jacob called the name of the place where G-d spoke with him, Beth-el.

http://bible.ort.org/books/glosd1.asp?action=displayanchor&g...

Bethel A town to the north of Jerusalem, where Jacob had the vision of the ladder (Genesis 28:11-22). It was after this vision that he gave it the name Beth El (House of God), it having previously been called Luz. He later built an altar there (Genesis 35:1-15).

http://www.thotl.org/cdvc.html

We use the name "Beth-el", because of its biblical signification. The name means "the house of God". Therefore, the "Beth-el" Association of churches will be an association of "houses of God."

Hope this helps,
Andrea
