    I love Billie for a girl! Beatrice, not so much, but she will more likely go by Billie, so…

    eww terrible name. I do not like at all, sounds like a mixed up old woman’s name.

  • bink

    Billie Dane is very cute. Sounds very British….I like it.

  • jacquelyn

    i dont like it, hopefully a nice nickname can come out of this

  • Cari

    I don’t care for it. All I thing of is Billie Goat Dane. I’m sure she’s a darling little girl though. Nothing against the little one, just not my choice of names, so don’t beat me up too much.

    • Cari

      *think*,…but you get it.

  • scarlett

    I can’t stop thinking of the Zoolander quote “listen to your friend Billy Zane” hahaha

    this is bad, but i guess it could have been a lot worse since celebrities usually go crazy on baby names.

  • Kimberly

    Billie? Come on now.

  • Sophia

    I think Billie Beatrice is just gorgeous, but Scarlett is right, Billie Dane is awfully similar to Billy Zane. But regardless, I think it’s a very sweet name, and as far as nicknames go they could always call her Bebe/BB :)

    • Sophia

      …like BB gun. Oops, didn’t think of that haha

    I do not like the name

  • Kristin

    I expected something way too weird from that front so seeing the name surprised me a bit. For the positive. Not a big fan of those names together but held separately it’s really cute!
    Eric’s co-actress Ellen Pompeo told a magazine that her own daughter Stella Luna and Eric and Rebecca’s little one would be pretty close in age and she expected them to be play pals once they grew a little. Billie and Stella. Aww. That’s just too cute:)

    a really adorable nickname is Billie Bea! Come on, its cute! I really like Billie. Its not too out-there and not too girly like Poppy or Petal or something. it’s really classy yet spunky. congrats. there’s not a doubt in my mind that she’s absolutely stunning like her papa!!!!

  • Ruby

    I love the name Billie Beatrice… I think a great nickname for her would b Billie Bea lol, its so sweet n girly for a little girl…. Bet she’s soooooooooooo cute too ( if she takes after her parents anyway )

  • jennifer

    Sounds like 2 grandma’s maybe they named her after. Maybe they were close and now deceased… like Violet Affleck. It took me awhile to like Violet.. so Billie will probably grow on me too.

  • mia

    Absolutely NOT…sounds like a redneck name!!! UGH.
    Just my opinion….and you did ask for it.
