Yes and No.
Yes, you can call your daughter Aurora the nickname of Bea.
No, I don't think you should have those reasons as reasons.
I know a Leah, I call her Leah Beah cause it rhymes. Her mom calls her Bella, even though her name is Leah Alessandra, no -bella name in it.
You can call your child any nickname you please really. Bea is the type of affectionate name that can be put on any child, regardless of the name imo.

Aurora is lovely, and I love it for you, and I think in America, you could get away with an Aurora being just Aurora. But we don't have that whole nickname thing here, haha. Nicknames are common, but not EVERYONE gets one. I'm still confused by your description, I really don't think there's any way you could get Bea from Aurora--it's far too big of a stretch, and I tried to get Posy out of Johanna.
If you love Aurora, but none of its nicknames, then I would either use it as a MN (possibly for a "B" FN? Blythe Aurora, nn Bea?), or have her go by a nn for her MN. But if you know she'll end up with a nn and you hate all the nns, I really wouldn't go for it.
I adore Aurora nn Ari, though. But if you don't like Auri, I'm doubting you'll like Ari... I know this is a HUGE stretch (but I think it makes more sense than Bea, haha), but what about a lion-related nickname? Leo/Lio, Leona, Leonie, etc.? Since it has the "roar" sound in the middle? Or even just call her Lion for fun? My mom had this thing where she gave each of my siblings and me an animal nn (I was butterfly!)--Lion could be her little animal nickname! I think Aurora nn Lion is quite cute, actually. She could be Aurora the Wannabe Lion. Now, how is that not adorable? :]]]]]Ashley
