Middle name for Beatrice

Hello there! This is my first post. My husband and I are expecting out third little girl in [name]March[/name]. I really like old, vintage, classic names. Our daughters are [name]Kathleen[/name] [name]Faye[/name] ([name]Kate[/name]) and [name]Stella[/name] [name]Rose[/name]. We think we have decided on [name]Beatrice[/name] for number three but I need a middle name for her that is also one syllable. So far we have been thinking [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Mae[/name]. Any other middle name suggestions?

[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Mae[/name] is pretty and goes well with [name]Kathleen[/name] and [name]Stella[/name] (except it bothers me that [name]Faye[/name] and [name]Mae[/name] rhyme). [name]How[/name] about:

[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Eve[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]June[/name]

[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Niamh[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Joan[/name]

Thts all ive got lol i hope this helps! :slight_smile:

i [name]LOVE[/name] the suggestion of [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]. It’s charming.

Thank you for all you suggestions. I love [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]June[/name]. However I am afraid of giving my daughter the initials B.J. So I think I might have to throw those out. I also like [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] but I actually know a person I’m not fond of and their daughter’s name is [name]Pearl[/name]. I am running out of ideas and [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Mae[/name] is sounding better all the time. What do you think?

[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Mae[/name] sounds fine to me even though you already have [name]Kathleen[/name] [name]Faye[/name]. Other options not mentioned in the pp’s are [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Ruth[/name] and [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Maude[/name]. All the best!

I really like [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Wren[/name]. I love the bird/nature reference. [name]Ruth[/name] has always been a middle name favorite but my hubby does not agree. [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Wren[/name]…hmmm, maybe

[name]Kathleen[/name] [name]Faye[/name] and [name]Stella[/name] [name]Rose[/name] are adorable, and [name]Beatrice[/name] fits just perfectly.

I have to be honest with you - [name]Mae[/name] is a name I’ve never, ever liked and probably never will. To me, it lacks a certain elegance, and you’ve chosen such elegant, sweet names already in [name]Faye[/name] and [name]Rose[/name]! [name]May[/name] is much more my style, if you love [name]Mae[/name] - it reminds me of [name]May[/name] Welland in [name]Edith[/name] [name]Wharton[/name]'s The Age of Innocence - but the fact that [name]Faye[/name] and [name]Mae[/name] or [name]May[/name] rhyme is a huge turn-off for me. I’m sorry to be so blunt about it.

I loved the idea of [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Pearl[/name], as it is sweet, charming, and melodic, but I totally understand you not wanting to use it due to personal associations. Maybe another four-letter name would be good?

[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Anne[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Beth[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Elle[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Gwen[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Nell[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Page[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Prue[/name]

I’d say [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Anne[/name], [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Beth[/name] ([name]Bebe[/name] as a nickname?), [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Elle[/name], and [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Nell[/name] are my favorites! Good luck!
