Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
I don’t know why? But I find this name in contributing a fresh coat of paint to the genuine classic known as
Beatrice. I think that if anybody would like something that appears somewhat “bohemian”, but also retains a sense of grace and charm, then by all means select this name and see it age gracefully with every passing year.

LOVE IT. It's really posh, in a good way, classy and sophisticated.

Silly rabbit, Beatrix are for kids.

Love it, it's still not too common right now, it's cool. I never met another Beatrix.

It looks much cooler than Beatrice, and I like the meaning.

This is my baby daughter's name, and I love it, but people have trouble with it. While we pronounce her name BEE-ə-triks, everyone else says BEE-triks - if we're lucky and they hear the x. Most of the time people think her name is Beatrice. So, instead of calling her BEE-ə-triks, most people call her BEE-tris. It's frustrating. Even my mom can't get it right! I'm tempted to just introduce her as Bea and stop saying her full name. (Also, nickname-wise, my brother-in-law calls her Bix.)

A beautiful sounding name! I love the meaning, too.

This is also used in Hungary. [noted -ed]

The "x" (very popular nowadays) makes the name much livelier to say, like the above comment, and makes it look very fresh, despite being a true classic. It's a crime that it is not used too much today, possibly because of the nickname "Trixie". If you want to use Beatrix, use Beatrix as is!
Amedee Lupien  8/29/2015
Love this name! Classic, feminine and strong, with the "x" making the name so much livelier and fun to say. I fully intend to use this for my future daughter- just hope it doesn't end up becoming super popular before I get to use it :)

So the first thing you do on this website is look up your own name :)
I didn't like my name when I was little, now at the age of 25 I came to terms with it. I like the name in itself (not the English pronunciation), but I cringe when they call me Beatrix, because to me it's too princessy and stern at the same time. I also hate Bea because I consider it the short form of Beáta, which is not my name. Plus in English it sounds like "bee".
Its diminutive in Hungary is Trixi (without an "e"). I like it because it's unusual and the x makes it a little sci-fi. A friend of mine calls me Trix, that's kinda cool too. Unfortunately it's a stripper or a dog name in pop culture. Oh well :)
It doesn't go with long last names.

I love this name! It feels like a fairy-tale name, along with Amelia. Those two names both sound so gorgeous and story-like! I also much prefer this spelling and pronunciation to Beatrice, as Beatrix sounds more original and unique than Beatrice.

I've also heard that Betty can be a nickname for Beatrix or Beatrice. I like that much more than Trixie. Betty sounds hip for a little girl.

CarolinW  7/20/2012
I really like this name, but it is very impractical when you put it with a last name - the x makes everything sound just wrong. Whenever choosing a name, always put it with your last name. After all, it's a package you are giving your child.
chocolatefrog  5/25/2012
One of the worst names ever! It reminds me of a mean, overgrown librarian with a wooden ruler.
GibsonGirl  8/21/2011
Beatrice is so ugly - looks like "beat rice". Beatrix is better, but still really battle-axey and dowdy.

As the years have rolled on, this name has become more and more appealing to me. It's strong yet elegant. My one concern is a nickname--I don't really like Bee or Bea, and Trixie just sounds silly and childish.
erb816  8/2/2010
The think this is much prettier and less old-fashioned than Beatrice (in English usage, anyway), with just as much history behind it.
I don't think a nickname is that necessary; it's not long or stuffy- sounding.
bathos  7/30/2010
Beatrix is a name nerd favourite. X is a hot letter, too, so I expect to see this name get just a little more popular in coming years.
The nickname Bix is a great way to avoid Trixie.

mafiosa  8/6/2009
I think Beatrix is a really nice alternative. Trixie is a cute nickname for a little girl, but not for an adult. If I would ever name a daughter Beatrix, I would make sure she doesn't develop that nickname.
Genevieve_M  4/3/2009
Great name!
walesgal92  2/17/2009
I love this name, and it is on my short list of considerations for my next child (we don't know if it's a boy or a girl yet). I prefer it to Beatrice, which I always want to pronounce in Italian. I actually like the nickname Trixie for a little girl, but maybe not so much for an adult. I absolutely hate the nickname Bea--it makes me think of Bea Arthur. That's not an image I would want to project on a little girl.
Varuca  11/25/2008
I prefer Beatrice, as I don't really like the end of the name. I hate the nickname Trixie, and would suggest parents who choose this name to call the girl Bea instead. That, or Beatrix. On the other hand, I think Bellatrix is a cool name despite the ending. But the whole unconventionality of the ending is part of the charm in that unusual name. Beatrix is more conventional, and I happen to like the even more conventional-sounding Beatrice better.
slight night shiver  5/15/2008
I do love this name. However, I'm for some reason attracted to its Latin ancestor, Viatrix. Hmm. A great name though. And Beatrix Kiddo kicks ass, by the way.

I was practically raised on Beatrix Potter stories, so of course I look fondly upon this name. I really like the way it sounds. It makes me think of rabbits (though I'm sure it's just because of Peter Rabbit, by Beatrix Potter). If I ever have kids, and my firstborn is a girl, I'll name her Beatrix. And of course I'll read her lots and lots of Beatrix Potter stories.

I love the name Beatrix but the nickname Trixie is a really weak-sounding and annoying name.

I love this name. It's beautiful and classy like Beatrice but more unique.
black_lace  1/11/2007
I like this name better than Beatrice because it's spunkier and the association of Beatrix Kiddo isn't a bad one because she is strong, not wimpy and delicate.
nothingshortoftragic  1/8/2007
I think it's pretty cool. It's quite unique these days. Very lovely.
