Beatrice Family History

Beatrice Name Meaning
Italian and French (Béatrice): from a medieval female personal name borne in honor of a 4th-century saint, martyred together with her brothers Simplicius and Faustinus. Her name was originally Viatrix meaning ‘traveler’ (a feminine form of viator, from via ‘way’), a name adopted by early Christians in reference to the journey through life, and Christ’s description of himself as ‘the way, the life, and the truth’; it was later altered as a result of folk etymological association with Latin beatus ‘blessed’.
