What do you think of the name Beatrice?

Nickname - Bea

Latin for "she who brings happiness". Women with the name mostly prefer the contraction "Betty". They don't like to be thought of as "B grade" or a little stinging insect. A long history; used by Dante in "The Divine Comedy" , & Shakespeare in "Much Ado About Nothing." The daugheter of the Duke of York, one of Paul McCartney's daughters.

It's a good name

I like the name and the nickname

This is a very old and historical name. Warm, rich and extremely beautiful. Love the nickname too. Hope this helps.

not bad

I really like this name, especially the nickname beatie

I thought of my favorite childhood book Junie B. Jones she never liked her middle name Beatrice. Also, it reminds me of a fairy tale kind of name. But it is not to say in a bad way.

Beatrice works, Bea does not. I'd go with Trixy.

Evokes an older lady but is quite dignified if not cute.

I hate "Bea"...not just because I never know if it is "bee" or "bee-uh"

love it...

it's pretty, classic and recognizable... bea is darling...

I love the name Beatrice - I think it's a lovely name for all ages. It's an adorable vintage name and I love the nickname Bea.
