I don't know if I would have liked it if I hadn't met a cute little girl with it a few years ago. Trying to work out if it's nice or too OTT

I think it's lovely

Do you think it's a very posh name?

I like it, think it's made a come back.

Where is that? London? One website says that there were only 500 of them in 2010. If they're all in your neighbourhood perhaps they won't be in mine! ;-)

I love it. But DH doesn't, sadly.

I like both Beatrice and Beatrix very much. I don't think it's obnoxiously posh - more classy, which is not the same thing! And Bee is a cute diminutive.

I like it, don't think it is particularly posh. I wound if it is about to get hugely popular? It seems to crop up a lot on baby names threads at the moment.

delilah88 Tue 25-Sep-12 20:18:20

I reckon it will get popular but not in top 50. I think it'll be like Matilda.

Love it

Gorgeous - go for it. I love it.

hazeldog Tue 25-Sep-12 20:24:06

its my horses name! love it. meaning is "beautiful" i think?

It's a lovely name. Not OTT at all, quite a classic really. There are a lot of more "out there" names.

I was going to use it as a middle name if ds had been a dd smile

Love it

I've always loved it - it was my aunty's name. If any of my boys were a girl they would have been Beatrice. It's very, very popular now, though.

Ham69 Tue 25-Sep-12 20:47:14

Love it. Definitely not OTT and not particularly posh though may have been a few years ago. I would say it's getting more mainstream now.

Like it especially with a B- surname so her nickname would be her initials BB.
(Also works for GG, CC without alliteration).

DD is Beatrice, we are Somerset based and haven't met another. All family were shocked, initially, but they really love it now. Her nn is Bea. I did worry it sounds quite posh, we say it Bee Ah Triss. But MIL still says Beet riss and it doesn't sound right.

Those saying it's popular, do you mean among v little new babies, or among toddlers? I mean, is it likely to be in the top 10 next year?
