So we recently found out we're having a girl and love the name Beatrix. But our surname begins with S. I didn't think about it but my DH stupidly suggested the names to in laws who promptly said wasn't it hard to say as first name ends in S type sound and surname starts with S.

Should I be worried and re think? So annoying as I thought we had it sorted and now I'm doubting.

I do tend to agree with your in laws. If you really like it, then how do you feel about hyphenating it.
Or how about Beatrix on her BC but using Beatie or Trixie as a nn.
I mean not everyone is sold on nns or hyphenating name. But just to give you more options.

Beatrix ends in an x sound.

Beatrix smith is fine.

Say the names aloud, see how you feel.

I agree with your in laws. Beatrix Smith sounds like Beatrick Smith.

Our surname begins with S and I vetoed any name ending in X. Sorry. I just found it hard to say and as an auditor, I introduced myself by my full name a lot at work so I wanted something that wouldn't get stumbled over. If you're going to use Bea or Trixie from day 1 it would be fine though I think.

I think it sounds fine, the ending is more of an "ix"'rather than "is" sounds, right?!

I don't think it matters. To me it sounds fine.
