  • "Despite the boy's name Beau originating from the French word meaning handsome (whereas a beautiful girl is 'belle') the name doesn't appear to exist in France where my youngest child Beau spent a few years. To the French it sounds a bit like boasting or arrogant to call your child 'Handsome'!" May. 21, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "My sons name is Beau. He was named after a childhood friend of my husbands who was also named Beau. I do occasionally run across someone who pronounces it ?Bew? for whatever reason. And when I?ve seen it written by other people they often spell it ?BO? regardless of the number of times I?ve said or corrected how to spell it. Which is insane to me." Dec. 6, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son?s name is Beau, named after the book ?Beau Geste? he?s 16 and truly beautiful! Blonde, strong & green eyed! Only drawback that he says it?s hard to hear in a crowd and it rhymes with ?no? lol i guess i said that a lot when he was young! my daughter ?s name is Brooke." May. 13, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "I know a baby girl called 'Beau' as in 'beautiful', but it definitely seems like a boy's name to me. 'Beau' means 'boyfriend' in old English." Feb. 22, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "Beau is spelt this way because its french for handsome. Jolie is the girl alternative meaning pretty in french. i love the name BEAU!" Mar. 29, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I think I might know your daughter, Louise. Exotic, right? Oh wait, I got her mixed up with my DOG's G-I-R-L_F-R_I_E_N_D?????" Mar. 14, 2007: Report as inappropriate
