Beatrix is a whimsical yet traditional name, and it definitely sounds more contemporary that Beatrice (the “x” helps with that). It has a certain femininity about it, without being too flowery. Beatrix probably saw a spike in popularity and an upped coolness factor following the Kill Bill franchise, in which The Bride’s real name turns out to be Beatrix Kiddo.
