Beatrix Meaning and Origin

The name Beatrix is a girl’s name meaning “blessed” and is of Latin origin. The name Beatrix is derived from Viatrix, a feminine form Viator which meant “voyager” and later associated with the Latin word beatus “blessed”. It is a variant of the name Beatrice, which was popularized by Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, where Beatrice is Dante’s guide through Paradise. Beatrix has been used in various countries and cultures throughout history. It was a popular name among early Christians, and it has been used by European royalty, including Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. In popular culture, Beatrix is most commonly associated with the character Beatrix Kiddo, also known as “The Bride,” from Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill movies. Beatrix is a refreshing update on the classic name Beatrice; shortening it to Bella, Bea or Trixie could also be super adorable for a young girl who hasn’t yet grown into her name.
