Is it a real name?

Bo. As in the face of.

As usual, if you can't pronounce it please don't call your child it.

I assume/hope it is someone else's name that you have seen.

Would you want to?

Bo-axe I suppose. Berks? Bo-ahr?

TrillianSlasher Thu 15-Oct-09 19:10:44

Actually I read that as Beaux.

Beuax - no idea!

Fruitbatlings Thu 15-Oct-09 19:10:49

Shouldn't it be Beaux?
I prefer Beau or Bo, lovely name imo smile

I think it would be pronounced Bo if it was 'Beau'.

I have never heard that name - where is it from?

Fruitbatlings Thu 15-Oct-09 19:12:23

crossed posts there trillian smile
Did it really take me 5 whole minutes to post that? shock

Obviously I'm as thick as shit tonight and can't add up hmm Think I'd better lie down......

I wouldn't even try.

I'd say 'oh what a lovely baby'

LOL - not for me, my DD is Evelyn and no more on the horizon yet!

I saw this name but dont know how to pronounce it. I only know the parent through the internet so haven't heard it being pronounced iyswim

I actually know two of these but one spelt Beau and the other spelt Bo.

I think Ulrika Johnson has a little girl called Bo and Baby spice (whatsername?) has a little boy called Beau.

The one's I know are very very cute which is why I like it - name association and all that

ElfOnTheTopShelf Thu 15-Oct-09 19:17:35

My DD's middle name is Boo, given because we'd nicknamed the bump Boo and had grown strangely attached!
Have see Bo and Beau, just not Beuax

Bow-ax. Sorry but that's what springs to mind

FlamingoBingo Thu 15-Oct-09 19:24:57

Beaux doesn't make sense. Beau means beauty, but Beaux means beauties. And it's spelt wrong.

Very odd!

FlamingoBingo Thu 15-Oct-09 19:25:24

And actually, if you're in Gone With The Wind, you'd pronounce it 'bucks'.

ElfOnTheTopShelf Thu 15-Oct-09 19:26:18

So its not just me being dim?

If they're not just misspelling Beau then I'd really like to know how they do pronounce Beuax. Can't imagine!
