        I don't know if this question makes sense, but are there cases where you would have to call it B/Eb as opposed to F#sus4/Eb?

        Or are they interchangeable names?

          Just interchangeable. This chord has a couple other names too.....

            It's just B major. It's an inversion, with the third, D#, on the bottom.

            I have no idea why you'd bother to turn a simple major triad into something complicated like "F#sus4/Eb." Besides, in order to truly be F#sus4/Eb, there would need to be a C# in it to complete the F#sus4 part of the chord (F#, B, C#).

              Yeah, you can't have an F# and an Eb in the same chord. Granted, that's a technicality, but when you're asking about the name of a chord, that's kind of what it is...a technical question.

              It's just the second inversion of a B major chord. Which can be written B/D#

                  It could be the first inversion, actually...I can't remember which one you start with.

                  At any rate, it's a 6-3 inversion. (A 6th between the D# and B, a 3rd between the D# and F#).
