I know a few Beatriz.... All teenagers. I love the name.
You're pretty much right except the end is more like "EES", I'm horrible with explaining phonetic prn but "a-té-na-ï-ss" is also a good explanation but I think that's pretty much what you're saying too. you can listen to it here Athénaïs and thanks :)

I refuse to accept that it will get popular at all or I will have to find more names to fall in love with!
