What's your favorite long name for Bo/Beau?
I'm really loving the nn Bo/Beau lately (especially Bo! I've recently discovered it has Scandinavian roots, as well?), and I've had Boaz nn Beau/Bo on my list for a while now, but I never seem to be able to come up with a combo I genuinely like, so I'm putting it aside for a moment to search for another full name for Bo (Beau?) I could really get behind. What's your favorite way to get to Beau/Bo? Beauregarde, etc., aren't my style at all, so besides that and Boaz, are there any other "Bo" names?
(And @southernmaple, I know just what you'll say about Bo and it being a nn for just about everything, but I'm not sure I feel that way? I'm just not sure it's one of those nicknames. Not for me, anyway. I do love the idea that you've suggested in the past, Benjamin nn Bo, but I'm not sure it'd really catch on?)

I saw someone once suggest that you could use Bo as a nn for Robert-- I thought it might be a bit of stretch, but I liked the idea of it.
I also have a friend whose brother's name is Brian, but they call him Bo-- so I wonder if it just could work for any "B" name..
I love Bo as a nickname and Beau as a full nameName Nerd
No kids (yet), not even trying... but, I can't help but dream of beautiful (and ever-changing) names for my future children!

Now a Scandinavian will just jump in quickly. ^^
Bo is scandinavian name,but here in Denmark (or at least with people I know) it's used like a teasing name along with Bob. Also Bo means living (like living in a house), which might make it real odd to be name, when you're from Denmark. Of course we do have people of older age named this, so I think you'd be able to pull it off. A joke I know about the name is:
"Well.. if I ever had a boy, I'll name him Bo, because then I cannot be angry with him, as the name is just too funny."
I just thought you'd like to know that. ^^Proud Auntie/cousin to;
