Names to go with Beatrice

We have a girl named [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name], but need a list for boy names and girl names along the same line as [name]Beatrice[/name] (Restoration, 1920s era-ish) but nothing too popular (or about to be popular, like [name]Vivian[/name] or [name]Eleanor[/name]). I know that’s really specific, but any advice would be great!

I love your daughter’s name! :slight_smile: So beautiful.

Some random thoughts that I think would compliment [name]Beatrice[/name] very nicely:

[name]Edith[/name] - is on my own lists!
[name]Josephine[/name] - my daughter’s name
[name]Maude[/name]/[name]Maud[/name] - is on my own list
[name]Henrietta[/name]/[name]Harriet[/name] - is on my list
[name]Cecilia[/name]/[name]Cecily[/name] - is on my list
[name]Winifred[/name] - is on my list
[name]Antoinette[/name] - thinking about this one myself!
[name]Elvira[/name] (el-[name]VEER[/name]-ah) - I’m thinking a lot about this one too!
[name]Wilhelmina[/name] (looks severe, but so light when said"[name]Willa[/name]- mina!)

Anything there? Well, I hope it helps some!

These are all along the lines of what I’m looking for, particularly [name]Louisa[/name], [name]Georgia[/name], [name]Eugenia[/name] and [name]Clara[/name]. Her middle name would probably be [name]Opal[/name], since it works well in the middle rather than as a first name. Thanks for all of the ideas!

I love all of [name]Lola[/name]'s ideas, especially [name]Edith[/name], [name]Clara[/name], [name]Cecilia[/name] and [name]Louisa[/name]. For boys, what about…

[name]Augusten[/name] (nn [name]Gus[/name])

I really like [name]August/name, [name]Dashiell[/name], [name]Theodore[/name] and [name]Thaddeus[/name] (but don’t love the nn [name]Teddy[/name]). The last name is [name]Green[/name], so that’s really preventing some names since they rhyme, like [name]Imogene[/name] [name]Green[/name] (my favorite girls name, but too rhyming).

[name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Green[/name] is fabulous! For girls, I think [name]Louisa[/name] [name]Green[/name] is cute as a button.

[name]Imogene[/name] won’t rhyme if you pronounce it the way the Brits do, where the second syllable is more gin than gene. :slight_smile: Prettier that way too, imo.

[name]Melissa[/name], [name]Imogene[/name] is im-oh-gene, at least here in the States, [name]Imogen[/name] is the British version, pronounced im-oh-jen/gin. [name]Imogene[/name] reminds me of [name]Imogene[/name] Coca, [name]Imogen[/name] screams [name]Shakespeare[/name]! (Okay, showing my snobby seolf in this post, sorry!) :smiley:

Right you are, [name]Lola[/name], which is why I prefer the [name]Brit[/name] version. Also, I’ve never known any Americans with the name, but the way you have it sounds an awful lot like [name]Emma[/name] [name]Jean[/name] (with the emphasis on awful).

[name]Celeste[/name], yeah, it’s one of my faves!
I love the other posters’ ideas. Especially [name]Viola[/name].


My aunt’s name was [name]Beatrice[/name]. Her second husband was named [name]Leroy[/name]. I think [name]Leroy[/name]'s time will come again, but I would be afraid to use that name. Her brother was named [name]Ross[/name] which is a handsome name.

Im & [name]Em[/name] are clear and sepoerate sounds for me, but I can see what you mean. To me, [name]Melissa[/name], [name]Imogene[/name] & [name]Imogen[/name] are related but different, like [name]Cecilia[/name] & [name]Cecily[/name]. Maybe I’m nuts.

I would love to name her [name]Imogene[/name] (pronounced Im-o-gin) but I’m afraid it would naturally turn into Im-o-gene [name]Green[/name]. Yuck! Maybe we could spell it Imogin? As well, we just discovered the names [name]Hetty[/name] and [name]Birdie[/name] (I know there is a lot of gasping going on with this one).
