Lovely was on my list for dc 2 but he was a he! But I would spell Beatrice

MelinaM Sat 17-Sep-11 21:03:36

Love Beatrix, a refreshing change from Beatricesmile

scarlettlips Sat 17-Sep-11 21:03:44

LOVE love love!! DH not keen [stomp] [stomp]

I like the fact that Beatrix is the more 'original' Latin form.

TheRealMBJ Sat 17-Sep-11 21:05:06

We would probably choose between Anna or Georgina for middle name. My choice would be Anna.

TheRealMBJ Sun 18-Sep-11 10:33:57

Or Beatrix Grace?

I far prefer Beatrice. Beatrix too tied up with Potter in my mind.

SaffronCake Sun 18-Sep-11 10:50:26

Beatrix Georgina for me, but only the X ending at a push because I like the softer CE sound more.

Kaekae Sun 18-Sep-11 10:54:03

Yes I like it. I know one known as Trixie but not really sure if I like this NN or not.

DD is a Beatrice Annabelle, nn Bea

I liked both Beatriz and Beatrix as well, DH and I had a debate about it that lasted weeks. We just didn't like Trixie as a nn and my family being what they are would call her that to annoy me.

We love her name and Bea suits her so.

I'm not a fan of girls names beginning with B, sounds harsh to me. Also don't like the X for the same reason.

Love Beatrice, not fond of Beatrix, but you've already decided on that.

I prefer Anna to Georgina, but it depends what your surname is. Because if the initials spelled out BAG or BAP etc it might be a bit unfortunate.

tiddleypompom Sun 18-Sep-11 13:05:44

I think it's lovely. Like the nn too - good for a little girl and a grown up woman. Middle name I prefer Grace but 'ain't going to encourage it as it is our choice too grin

Right so DD's surname will start with a 'W' (she'll get her Dad's surname, like DS did- I've kept my own)

Would Beatrix Anna be acceptable? BAW isn't bad, is it?

scarlettlips Wed 21-Sep-11 12:37:15

I think that sounds lovely TheRealMBJ

Do you like it??

TheRealMBJ Wed 21-Sep-11 14:12:14

God, I just realised how pathetic that sounded blush.

I do like it grin. I think I have decided, now just to convince DH.

phlossie Wed 21-Sep-11 21:40:36

Love Beatrix. It was on our list, but we went for Beatrice in the end, nn Betty.

Kirstle Thu 22-Sep-11 09:25:22

Beatrix is my absolute favourite name, ever!!

Beatrix Anna is just divine... I couldn't because my surname begins with G - for the same reason that I cant use Alice (one of my other favourite names)

The middle name I love for my fictitional DD is Beatrix Milly G_ (I love the 3-2-1 syllable formation and Milly honours my gran)

Good luck!!

I prefer Beatrice. The "trix" is a bit, er, dominatrix.
