I have a boy cousin Beau, so I couldn’t go girl Bo even if i wanted to.
I love alliterative names, so much so I wish they had gone with Bo Betty Blackwell (seriously say it out loud)
I did – it’s an absolute tongue-twister! I think I ended up saying Bob Etsy Blackwell.
The Name Station said:
I like Bo. I also go back in forth in my own head over whether I prefer it as Bo (gender-neutral) or Beau (typically male but the vowel combo is femme-acceptable) for a little girl. I’m still undecided.
I guess Beau on a girl could be seen as a short form of Isabeau.
I think Bo on a girl is sweet, but as Sophia said, I would prefer it as a nickname for something.
Maybe … Bonnie? I’m having trouble thinking of girl’s names starting with Bo …
I know. I was trying to think of what I would use Bo for. Bonnie works. I didn’t think about her.
How about Bronte nn Bo?
Well it’s a new one to me, but I guess it could work.
There seems to be a little bit of a trend of radio hosts giving their children unusual names… Wolfe, Kinga, Bugsy, Sunday, Art, Hewston, Lewis Lewis, and Bo.
I like it, people who dare to go little different!
It’s also nice to note that the majority of them have very normal middle names, Bo Elizabeth is fantastic!
Yes I get the feeling that radio presenters tend to be closet name nerds, and seem to put an enormous amount of thought into their children’s names.
I love Bo but I think if I were to give it to a future daughter it’d have to be as a nickname for something… Boheme maybe, or Bowen? Still very sweet though, congratulations to Tim and Monique and welcome little Bo 🙂
I thought it was rather sweet too – you always hope the first baby to be published for the year will have a great name, so this didn’t disappoint.
