We have one DD Matilda (Tilly)
Im thinking Beatrix (Trixi) for short if we had another??? what does everyone think???

I prefer Beatrice as it is "softer".
I´m sure you could still use Trixi with that.

Agree that Beatrice is nicer than Beatrix.

Beatrice (Bea) is lovely

Beatrix I am less keen on, and I'm afraid Trixie is more than I could stand

and Tilly and Trixy do sound twee together

Roopoo Fri 04-Sep-09 15:42:15

Thought people might think this ha ha ha... It does sound a little twee xx

Annabelle???? (love that as well)

MrsBadger Fri 04-Sep-09 15:49:26

I like Annabel
or even Arabella.

'Tilly and Bella' is better but you will get 'Tilly and Belly'...

I prefer Annabel as that goes better with Matilda/Tilly. I agree that Tilly and Trixy is a bit........Pandas at the zoo, you know?

Beatrix is definitely a beautifully elegant, strong name, but it is very strong.

Ps, what about Juliet, if you like those elegant names that don't end in a.

I'd go for Beatrice with nn Bea. Love it.

Juliet is lovely too.

love Beatrice, Beatrix is a tad harsh for me but its still lovely smile

I like both Beatrice (contender for what turned out to be DS1) and Beatrix. If I needed to use one of them again I just might go for Beatrix.
