Gender: M Meaning of Bardo: "water" Origin of Bardo: German saint name; also Aboriginal

Bardo has a poetic beginning and upbeat ending. Saint Bardo was the eleventh century bishop of Mainz, in Germany, which may be one reason Sandra Bullock (whose mother was German) chose the name as her son's middle. Bardo is also a Tibetan concept of an intermediate state. Bullock's choice inevitably shines a spotlight on this obscure name.
