There's a male contestant on America's Next Top Model Season 22 named Bello. Originally, I wasn't overly keen on the name because I believed it was pronounced as "Bellow", but the male model pronounces it as "Bay-zjo" (like, instead of 'zjah' in Elijah, take out the a and replace it with o). I think it's ridiculously handsome and if you love Bella but are expecting a boy, I would definitely suggest Bello, or perhaps Bela, pronounced "bay-la".

No , I adore this name! But I actually only like Bello. Don't really find Bella, cute because it's so common. I also love Bell for a boy and Belle for a girl.

It's surprisingly cute! The only thing that would hold me back from championing it is the word "bellow." Especially if the child happens to be a noisy one, haha! But could definitely work, and has a pleasing, happy energy.

Am I the only one that loves this? I think it would be as cute on a boy, as Bella is on a girl.
