    Hermione, Ginevra or Bellatrix?

    Hi all again. I know my constant flitting between names must be tiring now, but I've noticed that I keep going back to 2 names - Hermione and Ginevra. Hopefully this will be my last thread until she's here! OH still really likes Bellatrix and I have warmed to it and I love the nn Bea, but I'm not sure...

    The names would be;
    Hermione (nn Minnie or Mione)
    Ginevra (nn Ginny or Eva)
    Bellatrix (nn Bea)

    Middle names we like;
    Lily
    Fleur
    Narcissa
    Andromeda
    Minerva
    Although suggestions and combinations are greatly appreciated!
    Thank-you so much, you've all helped us immensely in the past few days

    I honestly think Bellatrix is fine given the numerous nickname (Bella, Ella, Bee, Bea, Trixie, Beata, etc.). It's a beautiful name, and while being uber-HP it's connected to HP as much as Hermione and Ginevra (maybe less, since it's a well known star)

    Given the choice between them for myself I think I would pick Bellatrix based on pure beauty, meaning, and background.

    Bellatrix Minerva - lovely! meaning "female warrior of the mind and intellect" if that's not a killer meaning I don't know what is!
    Bellatrix Andromeda - also very pretty, but rather star heavy
    Bellatrix Hermione - nice flow and meaning
    Livy/Lucy : Geneva/Gwen : Coralie/Alice : Noelle/Eve
    Eli/Bennett : Jude/Zane: Luke/Leo : Levi/Phineas

    That's a lot of Potter love!

    I like Beatrix more than Bellatrix, and you can still have the cute nickname Bea.

    My favorite of your first names though would have to be Ginevra. I would love to start hearing that name more. Hermione is a close second.

    Some combinations:
    Ginevra Lily
    Ginevra Fleur
    Ginevra Hermione
    Hermione Narcissa
    Hermione Fleur

    Madelyn - very much so i sometimes wonder if I like HP a tad too much, which I probably do! I like Beatrix, but we'd really like our first, at least to have a HP inspired name, as it's something special to us both and gives the name extra meaning.

    I love Bellatrix! Its from Harry Potter and I like the meaning and star connection too.
    Bellatrix Minerva - Love this one

    My next favourite would probably be Hermione, nn Minnie is cute.
