    I personally favour Florence I think.. all beautiful choices, I just feel Violet & Florence would really strike me. Vintage and sophisticated yet pretty and both have really lovely visual connotations to me

    I would tend to agree, but it’s the sort of thing no one in “real life” will notice or question. Both fit your vintage vibe well, it’s just that Beatrice has a touch more sweetness and feels more traditional/timeless, since it’s always been more well-used than Beatrix. But the difference is subtle in the grand scheme of things, so you should go with whichever you prefer.

    I agree, it is a subtle difference. I love both but do favour Beatrix where as my husband favours Beatrice. He did say he’s happy with Beatrix if we use either as a middle name though as it’s that tiny bit shorter. I think it’s only fair I do the same and say I’m happy for it to be Beatrice if we use either for her first lol.

    Thanks everyone, It’s now between Beatrice, Beatrix, Florence, Josephine & Mabel.

    As much as we love the others, we have had Theodore at the top of our list for a boy with each pregnancy. If we do have another and it’s a girl then we will probably use one of them but for now, we want to keep Theodore saved.
