In my family with people being named after each other, there are a lot of repeat names, in the family. Because of this my mom wanted different names for her children. LOL the year I was named, the name my mom liked my father didn't, and so I was named after a witch on a soap opera. Yes use the b, for witch. LOL As it turns out the name I have is short version or one of the dimiuatives for the name my mom wanted, unfortunately her desire to get names that are different backfired, the year I was named it was the number one name in the country and remained the number one name for a girl in the USA for ten years. So... lol instead of having a name that was different I have one that is very common.
