A Spelling Question

If you had a child that shared a name with the Queen of the Netherlands and a nickname with a former Prime Minister of Israel, how would you spell that nickname? Would you spell it like the insect, the infinitive form of the verb sometimes conjugated "am," Andy Griffith's Aunt, or as the former Prime Minister of Israel spells it?

Good grief, Jordana, that is some riddle!! It took my sleep-deprived brain a few minute to work it out. But I gotcha now. I choose C.

I love that name!
Bea I would think.

Bea. The first two don't look like they refer to a person, and the last reminds me too much of the sort of cutesy names my 12 year old self planned to give to my children, like Tiffani and Kissandra, with heart shaped dots used on each "i."

What kind of insect is named "Arik"?
Oh. Never mind.

I suppose "Trixy" is just right out, huh.

Bibi.
Bebe is, well, a foreign word and it risks becoming the less decorous "Babe." I don't think there is much future for a girl-child with that nickname Babe, unless it's in golf.
Beebee and Beabea are just too cumbersome.
No other near possibilities occur to me, but feel free to submit other contenders for my sensible review ;-)
