Opinions on Beatrice?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Berries,

I’ve been loving the name [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] lately, and it goes well with my other favourites, [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f], [name_f]Victoria[/name_f], and [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f]. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you like the sibset? Are the names too matchy? If you don’t like the sibset, could you suggest some names that are similar in style?

My best friend keeps telling me that [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] looks too much like [name_f]Beat[/name_f] [name_u]Rice[/name_u]. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you think this is a problem? I don’t love the look of [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] (particularly the end) but I’d use nn [name_f]Bea[/name_f] and I love that. As far as middle names go, I haven’t thought much, but I like [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f].

I don’t like [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f], but I wish I did, because it’d solve all these problems. sigh

I’m not pregnant btw, just working on names for my signature :slight_smile:

I’m sorry this is so long…

nah, you’re over-thinking it. [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] is such a well known name that nobody actually thinks of problems like “beat rice” when they actually know a person with this name. And I don’t see how they’re match with the other names, unless you mean because they’re all classical? in that case then it’s nothing. I love [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f]. [name_f]Violet[/name_f] is one of my favorite names, and I had a phase years ago where I loved [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] too

[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] is one of my favs!

I love [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]!

I love [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] and the nn [name_f]Bea[/name_f] is quite spunky!

I think that it sounds lovely with your other favorites as well.

It’s not my style, but there’s nothing wrong with it. I think it works well with the other names you mentioned and it being a pretty common/familiar name I don’t see many people looking at it the way your friend is.

While it’s not my style, I’ve never thought/seen beat rice. I think it goes well with your other choices.

I think the name is lovely and goes great with the sibset. I would have never thought [name_f]Beat[/name_f]-[name_u]Rice[/name_u]. I do know someone who spells it [name_f]Beatriz[/name_f], but I prefer [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f].

I strongly dislike both [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] and [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]. It amazes me that they are both so popular on this board. Then again, I’m not crazy about [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] either which many tend to favor as well. That being said, even though I dislike it, I do not agree with the [name_f]Beat[/name_f] [name_u]Rice[/name_u] comment… it’s a well known name. [name_f]Beat[/name_f] [name_u]Rice[/name_u] is not an association that comes to mind at all.

I like it now but it took a while! It fit with your other names.

I especially love the nn [name_f]Bea[/name_f]

It’s a beautiful name, I love the sound of it. I don’t see how “[name_f]Beat[/name_f] rice” comes into mind aha.

I love [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]. [name_m]Just[/name_m] love.

[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] is a good name and goes very well with the others on your list. I prefer [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] though as a spunkier version.

I’m a big fan of [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f], and while it’s a middle name in my signature ([name_f]Helena[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]), that’s only because I’ve got my (current) top five combos listed. I’ve got [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] combos outside my top five!

I do love the nn [name_f]Bea[/name_f], but if I ever used it, I’d also consider using [name_u]Tris[/name_u] (thanks to the character in the Divergent series).

I am also not a huge fan of [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f], I don’t dislike it, but I don’t think it’s as beautiful as [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]. It’s funny how just a couple of letters difference can completely change an opinion of a name isn’t it?!

I love [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]! So pretty and feminine, but also strong and tough, with the cutest nickname [name_f]Bea[/name_f]. I think it works really well with that sibset, and that the ‘beat-rice’ comment is overthinking to the max, it’s such a well-known name I doubt that there would be any problems!

I personally admire the name [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] and your sibset is actually beautiful. But they may feel left out because everyone else ends in an “a”. What about Beatricia?

[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] is lovely. NN [name_f]Bea[/name_f] or [name_f]Trixie[/name_f] are cute. And like your other names they have history and lots of different NN potential.

I love [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f], so pretty! It goes well with the other names in the sibset too. I definitely don’t think ‘beat rice’ lol
