I love it too. Beautiful name.

Yes. If I'd have had a girl she would have been Beatrice. They're late teens early 20s now, and I still live it as much as then.

Lovely name!

Really lovely name, and one that travels well too. Do it!

Nay. I think it has a harsh,unpleasant sound.

I've always loved Beatrice but it was vetoed by DH. Yay!

I'm mixed on it. I love the look of it, adore the meaning, but I'm not as keen on the sound of it. I like the pronunciation in French, but that is not helpful at all. On balance, I think it's quite a good name.

I like it. Love Bea as a NN, it's one of those names that I always wished I had.

squoosh Fri 04-Apr-14 20:00:41

Nay. I think it's stuffy and frumpy.

My best friend has just called her DD Beatrice,nn Bea
I love it

I think it's one of those names that seems 'old ladyish' until you meet a younger person with the name; then it just becomes normal. I went to uni with a Beatrice and a Constance; they both seem really young, fresh names to me now.
