What's the context of the chord? What chords come before and after this? That might give us some insight into its function.

I tried it out in a couple of inversions, but it always sounded A-ish to me, not B-ish, probably because of the strong [a] minor third interval. I would probably agree with Jafo,

Or an Am/B (possibly an Am9)
and call it a Am9 [omitting the 5th and m7th] or an Am with a G in the bass.

Now you are all just being silly!
Anyone who understands music can tell you that this is a female chord and should be called Hellen or Carol.
