Can also be short for Beatrice.

Non-English speakers would say it "BAY-ah", which I think is much prettier.

I love this name. It is much prettier than Beatrice or Beatrix, though I do like Bellatrix. It is so cute! I wouldn't name my daughter this though because it can't have any nicknames that are shorter and derived from the name itself.

In Norway Bea is pronounced as BE-a. A Norwegian film is named "Bare Bea" (Just Bea) - it's about a teenage girl named Bea, who is the last of her little clique to lose her virginity.

I adore Bea as short for Beatrice, and pronounced BEE-ah.

I think it's a bit too minimalist. It's better to name a girl Beatrice and call her Bea. I actually prefer the pronunciation ''BEE-ah''. Then it doesn't sound quite so plain.

I love this name, pronounced as it says. I usually don't like names so short but this is one that always stuck out in my mind. Ever like a name for absolutely no reason? That's what this is to me.
-- not_another_Jessica  11/13/2008
When I look at this name, I want to pronounce it "Bay-uh".

I hate this name pronounced BEE because of the association with the insect but pronounce BEE-AH I think it's quite cute but I don't think I'd use it.
-- dizzydoll  7/19/2011
The fact that this name isn't pronounced as "Be-uh" is pretty ridiculous. Sorry but "Bee?" As in the letter? The insect? Yeah, sorry but that's not a name. I can understand if it was a nickname but not as a full name
Why not name a child A or C or D and so forth.
Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

To the person above me, saying that a letter can't be a name is ridiculous. What about Dee? Or Jay? Or Elle? Shall I continue, there are a few more. I think Bea is perfectly acceptable.

I'm usually not a fan of short, one syllable names, but Bea is an exception. I don't know why I like it, but it's sweet, and I'd encourage parents to use this as a first name.
