Beatrix is quirkier and cuter, I think.

Beatrice - beautiful timeless elegant name....nickname Bee or Trixy...

ds2 would have been Beatrice Elisabeth.....

I like both.

I never really thought about this until now but I say them completely differently!

Beatrix becomes something like Beer-trix
Beatrice is Bee-a-triss.

Odd that I've always thought they sounded basically the same!

I think that I prefer Beatrice but don't konw why smile

Beatrix, esp if you like the books by Beatrix Potter. people will assume you do anyway!

Beatrix, it can be shortened to Trixie!

Depends on if you want to encourage Trixie as a nickname. Personally I wouldn't want that, i'd prefer Bea or Bee as the nn so would go for Beatrice.

Beatrix. Beatrice sounds kind of dated has been long declining in popularity from the chart: baby name Beatrice

OrmIrian Sun 02-Nov-08 16:17:56

Sounds like a good reason to choose it then nickel grin

dinkymum Sun 02-Nov-08 16:24:35

id go with Beatrice but thats just my opinion

AbbeyA Sun 02-Nov-08 16:25:57

I don't like either, but I would go for Beatrix as in Beatrix Potter.
