Can we call a boy dog Beau? My parents say it's a girls name.
Or other name suggestions for a golden colour Sprocker Spaniel. (We already have a dog called 'Monty'.)

Of course. 3 little boys at nursery called Beau.

Beaufort, Beaumont, Bodie all boys names.

I like Mister Bo Jangles

Or Bo Diddly

Both great dog names!

Beau means handsome
I know someone with a little girl called Beau which I find a bit odd.
Nice name for a dog though

I’d say boy.

But maybe they’re thinking of Bo derek.

Beau is male! Belle is the feminine equivalent.

Of course you can call your pup Beau, as in Beau Geste, the old Gary Cooper film! I think it's a lovely name.

I'm wondering if they're thinking 'Bow' rather than "Beau". It's not their dog of course, but it just made me doubt using the name.
Mister Bojangles sprang to my mind too!

No mistaking its a male name with Mister Bojangles!

Bo for every day and full name for introductions and when he is getting told off!
