    Getting to Bo

    I have been thinking about the nickname Bo for a girl, but I don't know what names could lead to that nickname? I thought about Boheme, which I adore, but I don't think it would work because of pronunciation issues. Has anyone got any ideas? Could Bo ever stand alone for a girl?

    Beau is quite trendy for both girls/boys in the UK (it ranks roughly #450 for both gender, as I remember) just as a stand alone name. I can't say I love that spelling for girls, but Bo is certainly lovely; I have a massive love of any cutesy B name!

    Maybe;
    Isabeau
    Bonnie
    Ebony
    Abigail
    Phoebe (at a push?)
    Bluebell
    and maybe uncommon -bel names, just because the B sound tends to be strong; maybe Mirabelle? Christabel? Amabel?

    Sorry, they're all massively stretched! My vote goes to 'just Bo'.
    much love and i are waiting for you;

    No, I don't think Bo could work as a standalone on a girl. Personally, I imagine it more on a boy, due to its proximity and probable relation to the name/nickname Beau, strictly male. That being said:
    Bonita
    Ebony
    Isabeau
    Bronte
    Amedeo Ariel Dmitri Enjolras
    Artemis Cicely Elisabeth Evangeline Mirabelle Ophelia Rosalie Titania

    I think Bo is lovely on either gender and it stands extremely well on its own. Any 'bo' name or 'beau' name should work, as should most names beginning with 'b' and containing 'o':

    Isabeau
    Arabeau
    Bonnie
    Bonanza
    Bohemia (might be easier to pronounce than Boheme?)
    Bonita
    Bronte
    Bryony
    Garbo - Love
    Iyabo
    Picabo
    Tiboni
    Mirabeau
    Beaulah
    Ballou - Love
    Bayo - Love
    Bardot
    Bijou
    Bidou
    Bozsi
    Brio
    Bronja

    I like Bo on it's own for a girl, but I just adore the name Bodil nn Bo even more for a girl.
