I was wondering about what word is used in the Greek, what it's definition is, and what range of words it can be translated as, with regard to beauty/beautiful in these passages...

"Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness." - Ps. 29:2

"Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is beautiful for the upright." - Ps. 33:1

"O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth." - Ps. 96:9

"Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth." - Ps. 110:3

"Praise ye the Lord: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is beautiful." - Ps. 147:1

Also, is the same word used in all these similar verses, or is there more than one word being used?

From the LXX, with translation of the relevant bolded parts:

Ps 28:2

2 ἐνέγκατε τῷ Κυρίῳ δόξαν ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ, προσκυνήσατε τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐν αὐλῇ ἁγίᾳ αὐτοῦ.

.. in His holy court. Aὐλῇ means courtyard, yard, etc.

Ps 32:1

 ΑΓΑΛΛΙΑΣΘΕ, δίκαιοι, ἐν Κυρίῳ· τοῖς εὐθέσι πρέπει αἴνεσις.

... praise is fitting for the upright.

Ps 95:9

προσκυνήσατε τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐν αὐλῇ ἁγίᾳ αὐτοῦ, σαλευθήτω ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ πᾶσα ἡ γῆ.

Same as Ps 28:2.

Ps 109:3

3 μετὰ σοῦ ἡ ἀρχὴ ἐν ἡμέρᾳ τῆς δυνάμεώς σου ἐν ταῖς λαμπρότησι τῶν ἁγίων σου· ἐκ γαστρὸς πρὸ ἑωσφόρου ἐγέννησά σε.

With You is the beginning in the day of your power in the brightness of your saints; from the womb, before the morning star, I have begotten you.

Ps 146:1

ΑΙΝΕΙΤΕ τὸν Κύριον, ὅτι ἀγαθὸν ψαλμός· τῷ Θεῷ ἡμῶν ἡδυνθείη αἴνεσις.

... may our praise be sweet to our God.
