Due in 2 weeks & can't agree on a name!

I've found it really hard to agree on names & can't seem to find anything I really like or my husband agrees with.

Thinking maybe Zachary for a boy but worried it's a bit common!

He really likes Beau for a girl. I'm not convinced as I like longer names. Can't think of a middle name to go with it either. Any suggestions??

I think Zachary needs something simple to go with it like John or James.

I only know boys with the name Beau.

Do you have other dc?

Beau is the masculine form of Belle.

Bo is the feminine version of Beau, which as Bellisima said is masculine.

I like Zachary! I agree that it might sound better with a one syllabled name like James etc, but I do know a little boy who is Zachary William, which I think is quite nice.

I like Zachary. Only know one Zachary (man) but know a few just Zac/Zaks.

Don't worry about Zachary, it's not that common I don't think! I like it

Agree, Beau is masculine. Do you like any longer names with Belle at the end?
Annabelle, Christabelle etc ?

Zachary is getting quite popular but not hit the top ten so not madly so.

If you like Old Testament names like Zachary you could think of Saul, Seth, Isaac & Caleb which are bit less popular.

Do you have any Scottish/Irish heritage, some lovely Gaelic names for boys as a first/middle name, personally prefer them to the biblical names.

As everyone has said Beau is a boy's name. I think it's a bit odd for a girl even in the Bo form.
