    I call my boyfriend Beau every now and then... it means "handsome" and it is very masculine. I'm saying a definite no.

    I agree with the above posters. Beau is a masculine adjective in French (counterpart to "belle"), so it seems weird to use it for a girl, especially with the added meaning of a male suitor. Not to mention, Beau as a first name has a bit of a cowboy feel to it. Bo would be okay as a nickname, for Bonnie, Bonita, Bozena...

    From the names you posted, I like Wren Hazel Rose and Quinn Hazel Rose.

    Beau is not a name for a girl. It is well-known that it means "handsome" in the French language. It's why "belle" is so popular in the girl name world - it means beautiful.
    Beau is great for a boy. A girl? NO.

    We would not spell Beau the same for a girl. I do not like the B.O. association with that particular spelling and I have not fell in love with any of the longer versions like Isabeau. Suggestions?

    What about Bow? as in "tie a bow in your hair"

    I agree with the others that on it's own it's assumed to be masculine. Though I also agree that it does have a slightly feminine feel.

    What about doing a double-barreled name with -Bow. Anna-Bow, Ivy-Bow, Sara-Bow, Clara-Bow, Ava-Bow, etc.
    I think I could get behind something like that.
