What do you all think? We like old fashioned 'proper' type names, & we both really like it! Opinions, please.

Love it!

Bloody lovely

You both really like it. That's the deal breaker.
She could use Beatie or Trixie for nns. If she wishes.

I know one, and I keep accidentally calling her Bellatrix blush

LOVE Beatrix. My baby's due imminently and we've chosen her (different) name, but Beatrix popped into my head two days ago and I can't stop thinking about it!! Daren't tell DH, or the company from which I ordered handmade wooden letters spelling the original name!!

I don't think I've ever seen so many yes's for a name! grin

veryfriendlylion Fri 03-Feb-17 16:53:37

Love it...but then I am biased, currently cuddling my six week old Beatrix!

So glad we chose it as her name, it really suits her and get so many compliments on it (not that we chose it for other people but you get my drift!)

BlytheOfWindyWillows Fri 03-Feb-17 16:59:09

Love, love, love it smile

NameyMcNamerson83 Fri 03-Feb-17 17:00:07

Love it, it's on my list too!

AmyInTheBoonies Fri 03-Feb-17 17:08:03

Lovely, though prefer Beatrice spelling.

Crunchymum Fri 03-Feb-17 18:52:54

Not a fan. Sorry. Although I prefer it to Beatrice.

Trixie sounds like a "lady of the night" name blush

teenybean Fri 03-Feb-17 18:58:24

We don't like Beatrice, so she will definitely be Beatrix smile

MrsMeeseeks Fri 03-Feb-17 20:13:45

I love Beatrix, but after seeing a thread in Chat (or was it AIBU) the other day, I'm not so sure about it. The OP had a little Beatrix and was complaining that everyone pronounced it Beatrice!

Beatrice is lovely too, but it would just annoy me too much to have to go around correcting people all the time.
