Beatrix, Again

I can’t seem to let go of Beatrix, but I am rethinking her combo. Beatrix Poppy Elinor charms me with her upbeat sound and her bright colors but it feels almost too “British” if that makes any sense. But Beatrix, I can’t shake her off. I keep thinking “I hear her a lot online” And that scares me off a bit. I don’t want her to have a dated name, and I’m a touch afraid that Beatrix might. But I like her so! So I’m rethinking middles for her.

Which means,  I’m running a poll at BtN, as usual, and as usual, here are those poll choices;  in case you don’t want to bother clicking.

 Beatrix Elinor Plum – Elinor honors the cousin,  Plum has a luscious sound I just want to be able to say daily!

Beatrix Esme Ruby – Esme for Esmeralda who sounds ridiculous with my surname, Ruby’s for me, my birthstone!

Beatrix Esme Valentine – Mentioned Esme above, Valentine’s for my Pop.

Beatrix Alice Rupinder– Alice should have been my name, to honor thwarted Mom, Rupinder is just a love. I love her feel, her sound and her look. Can’t ask for more!

Beatrix Malu Primrose– I love the sound of Malu (meaning’s pretty awesome too) Primrose is a cousin.

Beatrix Romilly Violet– Finally, Romilly where I would feel more comfortable, Violet for my favorite Auntie on Mom’s side.

 Beatrix Lily Alice – Lily for Grandma Lily, Alice for my Mom again.

Beatrix Oona Pearl– Oona’s a love, I like her swoop, her feel: sleek and Pearl because I like the way it looks and sounds follwing Oona.

and can’t forget to add the standard bearer: Beatrix Poppy Elinor  – Poppies are one of my favorite flowers, the color alone makes me smile. My Uncle Jim thinks Poppy’s for him, they’re apparently his favorite flowers too. And Elinor’s that cousin again.

 

So, should I even bother? Is Beatrix going to be the next to jump upwards? (this is the same problem I have with Clementine, she’s gone from being #1 two years ago, to being #10, and that’s after being #17 for a good while) Anyway, should I worry, or is Beatrix worth it? And which combo do you like best? I’d love to know. Anyone happening along, feel free to add your 2¢!  New voices are always welcome!

 

 Update: Down to three combos:
Beatrix Scarlet Jane
Beatrix Elinor Plum
Beatrix Jemima Alice

We have a Tie!

 According to the poll from yesterday, Beatrix Ruby Marilyn is tied with Beatrix Poppy Elinor, 16 votes each. Closest runners up, Beatrix Flora Ophélie & Beatrix Flora Winifred came in with 13 apiece.  Beatrix Esme Valentine trails with 10.

 

 So, Beatrix Ruby Marilyn & Beatrix Poppy Elinor, which would you pick and why?

Just pretty, like Beatrix! 

Just pretty, like Beatrix!

Beatrix?

I’m in love with Beatrix. Almost lost it because of the “Kill Bill” flicks. Loathe those.

But Beatrix love remains (thank you Beatrix Potter!)

 

I have four combos that make my heart sing, for various reasons,  this is rather how I feel when I say Beatrixgrays20iris20garden

without further ado, here they are:

Beatrix Flora Ophélie – Flora’s for a Florence, Ophélie’s  just gorgeous.

Beatrix Poppy Elinor – Poppies were my Dad’s favorite flower, Elinor’s a cousin.

Beatrix Esme Valentine – Esme for G. Auntie Esmeralda (which is just too unwieldy for this non Spanish chick). Valentine, for my Dad, born on Valentine’s Day and given two names he hated all his life.

Beatrix Violet Cleophée  – Violet for an Aunt, Cleophée because I adore her.  Any form of Cleo’s aces with me, I just find this one rather elegant.

Anyone want to comment on what they like/dislike or why?  Possibly? Or heck, just vote in the poll!
