WDYT? I was watching Mad Men last night and a baby's name was Beatrice Grace. I thought it sounded so pretty!

Makes me think of Dante and Inferno. It's a very virtuous woman. Dante falls in love with her and pines after her for years.
Quote:
Dante was nearly nine years old when he first set eyes on Beatrice Portinari, in a gathering at her father's palazzo in Florence. She was a few months younger than Dante and dressed in a crimson dress. She captivated him completely. As he later wrote, "From that time forward love fully ruled my soul." For the next nine years he remained absolutely besotted with her but only from a distance and it was only in 1283, when he was 18, that she spoke to him as they passed each other in the street.

In 13th century Florence arranged marriages were the norm, especially amongst the uppers classes, to which both Dante and Beatrice belonged. So, at the age of 21 Dante was married off to Gemma Donati, to whom he had been betroted since the age of 12 and Beatrice married a year later too, only to die three years after that, at the tender age of 24. Dante was devastated. He remained devoted to Beatrice for the rest of his life and she was his principal inspiration for much of his well known work, such as La Vita Nuova (The New Life) and La Divina Commedia (The Divine Comedy).

I like both Beatrice and Beatrix a lot. I like the meaning (female traveler), though the spelling was altered by association with the word for 'blessed.' Beatrice and Dante is a nice association, though a bit sad.
