Love the Story, Disappointed in Changes

I have loved this classic story since childhood and was very disappointed and confused by the unnecessary name changes that have occurred.

Why is Bessie now Beth and why is Fanny now Franny. It doesn't make sense ?

What a shame. Apart from this, the story is as good as always.

Not so sure kate winslet as the narrator however, I do think having someone famous or identifiable to that level is distracting from the story. (I think this for most famous people narrating audiobooks)
