I love family names. And I also think Beatrice is a great name. I do think you will always be correcting people, but I have to spell my name for everyone and it doesn't bother me to much, so I don't see it as a big deal. I do think I would make it phonetically correct, as Momtothe6th mentioned. I also think that no matter how you pronounce the main name (Bee or Bay), you could still use Bay as a nickname. Once established, it would stick around anyway. I've been pleasantly surprised that everyone uses the shortened version of my daughters name that we chose, since we were afraid folks would shorten it to one we didn't like (Josie instead of Jo).
