    Juliette (I prefer Juliet) goes best with Tristan and Miles. My second favorite is Adele (this spelling).

    Bea is pronounced like bee but I could also see it being pronounced bee-uh, like the beginning of Beatrice. It's not "bay" at all.

    I think in Spanish the beginning of Beatrice is bay-uh, so the nickname Bea would also be bay-uh. I actually really love the pronunciation bay-uh but I don't think many Americans would get it (not sure about other English-speakers). The bee pronunciation is also very cute. I don't think Beatrice is the best sister for Tristan and Miles though. From your list I really like Eleanor nn Nell or Nellie - or even Helen nn Nellie. So cute with Tristan and Miles! Juliette is also very lovely. I don't pronounce Juliet and Juliette differently so I think the spelling you choose is up to you. I prefer the more streamlined Juliet but it is simply subjective.

    I think Adelle/Adele goes best with Tristan and Miles, but out of your choices I like Beatrice best. Like previous posters, I'd pronounce 'Bea' as 'bee' (or 'bay-uh' in Spanish/Italian.) I think if you want that pronunciation, it would be easier to spell it Bay.
