For a boy.

Is it chavvy or faddy? I realise it most likey is but I really love it at the moment.

I already have a DS called Theodore.

Theo and Beau do sound nice together in my hormonal head!

Other options are Sebastian or Dylan but I worry these are too popular.

My most favourite MNer ever has a Beau and he's awesome.

I like it rather a lot.

I don't like it.
It's a bit 'sleb offspring circa 2004' but mainly I just don't like how it sounds.

I like it for a baby, but not for a man or even a boy. Sorry!

Beau and Theo sounds like a cartoon. And yeah, it's of a bit C list celeb-y baby name.

Sebastian and Dylan are so much nicer.

I knew a little boy called Beau when I was a beaver leader, he'd now be 23. It's a lovely name but one that will divide opinion.

I think it's lovely, and I think it works fine for a man too.

I like it and would have used it if it didn't sound utterly ridiculous with our surname!

I love it! It always reminds me of a quote from a film I saw with my Dad when I was little where the character says something like "My momma called me Beauregard, cause I was so good looking". I can't remember the film or actor but the line has always stuck in my head!

I worked with a lady who had a Beau and a Bella.

I liked it, until DP asked "Bo? As in bee oh, body odour?" Put me off...

I think Sebastian is much nicer and would go very well with Theodore

I think it's dreadful. Much prefer Sebastian.

I'm never quite sure how to pronounce it -
Bow or Buw?

PandoraLovesGin Wed 03-Feb-16 22:33:49

I would pronounce it Bow.

Seems quite a marmite name. Possibly better for a kitten hmm

I really don't like it, I'm afraid - it sounds affected and foppish to my ears.

Sebastian is lovely. Not so keen on the others xx

I think it's quite cool

What if he's ugly? What about at school when they do French and find out what it means?
