    Lyra - that's good to know--thanks! I just saw on BtN that it had some Scandinavian roots (from the word bui, I think it said?). It just appealed to me more, thinking it had an international appeal. I really doubt Beau would be used in France, either, but I think it's cool to have several ties to other cultures.

    @kristinjade - meh. I feel like I should think that was a brilliant suggestion, but Robert is altogether pretty boring for me. It's a pretty popular family name for me, and the little Robert I know doesn't make me like the name too much. I don't think people would easily see that Robert = Bo, either...

    Emily - meh. Not really. The Tobiah in the Bible wasn't so great of a character. I like Tobin, but something about Tobias and Tobiah rub me the wrong way. And I'd always thought I would use Toby for Tobin, not Bo, although I suppose I could use both? The BO_ idea should work, in theory, but I never seem to be able to embrace it. Before I loved Samuel, I had considered Seth August Morgan, nn Sam, but it just didn't seem right enough, somehow. idk. Something like Bryn Oliver would be fun, and I'd have an excuse to my beloved Welsh Bryn! (Or I could just opt for Bo as a sometimes nn for Bailey Oscar Charles that is already on my list. Hmm.) I like Broderick, but I've been thinking about using it as a full name for Brody lately, and that would give me the same dilemma that Tobin does with Toby and Bo.

    In all honesty, I think any name beginning with B can work as a long form for Bo/Beau. Beau means handsome so I think it will work as a lovely nickname. Benjamin or even Bastien nn Beau. That is just my opinion as I am not particularly fond of Beauregard or Beaumont etc...

    @dantea! Abbott! I don't know why I didn't think of that--I've loved Abbott for years! I definitely am keeping Boaz as an option, but if it doesn't work out, I think Abbott's my Beau/Bo replacement! Do you think I could still spell it Beau? I thought I was liking the Bo spelling, but I think in all honesty that Beau is still my favorite spelling. Abbott doesn't really have the BOE sound, so is it too much of a stretch to jump from Abbott to Beau straightaway?
