Which do you prefer. We are genuinely on the fence and don't want to ask people in real life as we want to keep it a surprise.

Beatrice or Beatrix?

Beatrice, like burgatroyd said, Beatrix could get the nickname Trixie, which I don't like.

Well I love both and Beatrix is a little more unusual but

(i) can you stand people saying Potter immediately after Beatrix,
(ii) Beatrix wouldn't automatically be shortened to Trixie but how do you feel about that?

Beatrice is a bit stuffy.

I love it!

I do also love Beatrix, but not sure I could actually name a child that.

I don't mind Trixie as a nn. Although it does make me think of the phrase turning tricks. hmm I like the posher side of Beatrice as much as I like the quirky side or Beatrix.

I just hear beer tricks re Beatrix. Which is a shame because I think Trixie is a great nickname.

So...Beatrice gets my vote.
