It's either:

Beatrice Amelia
Beatrice Eliza

Ooh a tricky one... I think Amelia sounds prettier, but Eliza is more unusual... if that's any help at all?!

Both nice, depends on your last name initial.

A vote for Beatrice Eliza from me; it's lovely. Good luck!

Eliza. Bea is a lovely name. (Fell in love with it when House of Elliot was on...)

I love Beatrice Anne too.

Beatrice Eliza

I think Alice would also work.

I think they both work nicely.

We went for a non-verb starting middle name, but they both wok ok, imo.

What is your surname? will it end up spelling (or nearly spelling) something?

beatrice Eliza is lovely.

my grandmother was Beatrice Marguerite so i struggle to hear anything else following Beatrice ( she hated her first name and to honour her I used her middle name as one of DDs. But i digress)

Of your two choices i think I prefer Eliza.

Surname begins with B.

Doese either name have a special meaning for you Clara?

clarabellarocks Tue 30-Nov-10 15:15:03

Not really - it would help if it did but unfortunately no!

clarabellarocks Tue 30-Nov-10 15:20:54

Rose would be lovely BeerTricks but is our DD middle name!!

Beatrice Eliza

Both nice middle names but to my ears Beatrice Eliza seems to flow a little better.

ValiumSingleton Tue 30-Nov-10 17:47:18

I prefer Eliza, but as there is an s type sound in Beatrice and a z sound in Eliza, Beatrice Amelia is a nicer mix of sounds. It just flows really well with no repetition of sounds.

before I clicked on your link tho, when i just saw the question not the options to choose between, Eleanor and Ellen popped into my head.

Beatrice Amelia. Both names are pretty and classy, and flow well together. Eliza is OK but it's a bit nicknamey and I do think "Doolittle", which to me doesn't go with Beatrice so well. Eliza doesn't flow so well after Beatrice, it brings the name to a clunkier stop.

Highlandgirl Tue 30-Nov-10 20:18:30

I like both...! Sorry that's not much help smile

Beatrice Elizabeth???

Both lovely, but I would go with Amelia for more of a variety of sounds.

Beatrice Eloise lovely too imo.

(You can't go wrong with Beatrice though smile)

Princess Beatrice has Elizabeth and Mary as middle names.
