One. She is about 5 now, and gets called Bea. I think it is a lovely name.

Only one, and she's not that little any more, she's 9. Pretty name.

Gorgeous name. I'm not allowed it because our surname is a B and I'm not allowed to alliterate. sad

None - its a family name going back hence my Mumsnet name - I love it & if I had had a daughter would have been in my top 5 names - I like it as well because unlike most names I equally like its shortened version.

When people are saying it is shortened to bea, that is pronounced 'B' not 'beer' rightgringrin

I know a 20 year old one - my niece.
She is bilingual so it is pronounced both the English way and the lovely French bay-a- treez.
