Comments

B/A is the correct name on the first chord, since A is used as the root note. This version could be used if you want to play the B chord in open position. It is also possible to skip the first string by mute it.
Bm/A is the correct name on the second chord, since A is used as the root note. This version could be used if you want to play the Bm chord in open position. It is also possible to play the first string open.
Many prefer to play some of the B major and B minor chords as barre chords instead. After you learned barre chords it will probably be easier for you and in many cases sound better.
