Both very pretty but I prefer Beatrice. I know so many Matildas.

I prefer Beatrice but don't really think that Niamh goes well with it so

Beatrice Margaret Anne

I much prefer Matilda, hate the name Beatrice. Sorry.

Matilda is much nicer.

I have a Beatrice. Lovely name and Bea is an excellent 'short'

I prefer Matilda too, I can't stomach Beatrice (sorry OP)

I think Beatrice Margaret Niamh flows better

I like both names... Matilda is really pretty, I love it. Although I personally prefer Mafalda, tbh.

Anyhow, I do love the meaning of Beatrice and it sounds very nice with the middle names you chose... So, I think I like Beatrice N M better.

Matilda is a much nicer name

Thanks all. I wasn't sure whether the Niamh worked as a second name and thought Matilda might be too common smile

I love Niamh but I agree Beatrice Margaret Niamh flows a bit better that way around.

Much prefer Matilda and don't know a single one. Much less keen on Beatrice although Bea is an alright nickname!

Matilda is very pretty. Tilly and Tilda are sweet nicknames. I know one Matilda and one Beatrice.

I don't like Beatrice much, it sounds harsh.

Love Beatrice- had no idea it was so divisive. I much prefer the pronunciation Bee- ah-triss to Beat- ris though. There are a zillion million (yawn) Matildas around and Milly/Tilly etc are a bit sickly to my ear. I think Beatrice is far more classy and timeless xx

FWIW I too dislike the name Beatrice and had no idea it was so popular... I'd assume the person was 50+ if they had that for a name.

Love the name Matilda and think it's cute and sweet. Didn't think it was common at all.

I prefer Matilda.

But if you're going with Beatrice, I think Beatrice Margaret Niamh scans better and keeps the Beatrice and Niamh apart (they clash slightly, somehow).

Florrieboo Mon 04-Jul-16 05:16:35

Beatrice for sure. There are so many Matilda's.

I love Beatrice. Matilda is also lovely but really popular.
