    Thanks so much, everyone! When I first considered the name Beatrice, I wasn't particularly concerned about the alliteration, but the more I said it to myself, the more I started to question it. It's really nice to get a fresh perspective.

    I agree it works fine. Lucky you! My husband's B surname that the kids will probably take has too much other overlap with Beatrice/Beatrix, but I plan to possibly use one as a middle. Of course my B surname is alliteration that works with them, so, hmm : D.

    I LOVE Elsa and Beatrice and the alliteration works. I would sty away from names ending in n as they sound 'off' with your surname.

Although I like the names themselves, I actually don't think Imogen Boman or Jocelyn Boman are ideal as they both share an "n" ending with your surname. Elsa Boman would be pretty too but I still think Beatrice Boman is a winner!

    Agreed. I tend to love (most) alliteration.
