    If you don't like Beau, go with Bo. If you don't like either of those spellings, find another name.

    Beau is a great name, but the only other spelling that doesn't make me cringe would be Bo.

    Boe is better than Bowe (which makes me want to say Bowie FYI), but both spellings are pretty bad imo...

    I know a Beau and I think it's a great name, but if you don't like the spelling try a name that could have the nn Bo instead.

    From reading the name of the thread I also first got the impression of 'not knowing how to spell Beau'.
    In all seriousness though, Nameberry is filled with name purists who love original spellings of names... so this may not be the best place to get approval and/or suggestions of an alternate spelling.
    (Bo and Beau are the 2 standardized spellings)
