    Pronunciation of Bea

    Do you pronounce it bee or bee-uh? I want the nn "bee" for Beatrix but want to make sure the pronunciation makes sense. Should I use the spelling Bee for clarity?

    I had a great aunt we always called 'Auntie Bea' (pr. 'Bee'). I know her full name was Beatrice & was also often called Beatty.

    Bea is "bee," just like Bee. But I have seen Beah - like Leah - for the [bee-uh] pronunciation!
