my favourite B names

Barnaby- I love the sound of this name as it rolls off the tongue, I love the nickname Barney too 🙂 Also a favourite NZ written picture book has a character Barnaby Bennett- I think its divine!

Beatrix- Bea & Trixie both cute nicknames. Could also see myself using it in the middle name slot. Always makes me think of Beatrix Potters magical little creatures :).

What are your favourite B names and why?

    Ha! Beatrix is my favorite B name as well! And it’s the only B name on my (huge) name list, can you imagine that!

    I love Barnaby! My favorite B name for a boy, though, is Benedict. Barnaby is second 🙂

    For boys my favourite is Brahms. I love the musical connotations and gentle sound, and for some reason I have a bit of a “thing” for one syllable surnames that end in S used as first names. I’m not sure why.
    For girls, as much as I love Beatrix and Beatrice, my new favourite is Boheme nn Bo. I heard it first at Girl’s Gone Child (Bec has Archer, Fable and twins Boheme “Bo” and Reverie “Revi”) and although I always liked it, I have only in the last week or so begun to ADORE it 🙂
    Some other favourites are Billie, Bodhi (g), Belle, Brooks, Bastian, Bellamy, Bailey, Bunny, Bettina and Banjo.

      Brahms is cool, quite last name ish though….I love boys names that end in S.
      Boheme- how do you say this? Bo is not my thing- I don’t know why, maybe its too cutsey for me 🙂
      You have lots of B favourites!

        Bo-EM. Like the opera, La Boheme. I’ve been back and forth on Bo in the past but at the moment I just think it’s super sweet in its simplicity.
