BeatrescaSomeone asked me about my choice of names.
Until I was in my Twenties, I knew my mother's name was Beatrice and that is her name in English but the name she was born with and was baptised with was Beatresca, which I find absoletely beautiful. My one aunt was talking about my mother's name and how she felt her name was so plain in comparision and I found out. Both my Grandparents on my mother's side were Polish. And that's where I got it and use it in memory of my Mom.
