Boo Origin and Meaning

Boo may have started out as a nickname for the male character Arthur "Boo" Radley in To Kill A Mockingbird and these days may be closely associated with another male Boo, the "world's cutest dog" or with the adorable little girl in Monsters, Inc.

There used to be this television programme on in which the main character was a strange alien thing called Boo. There was also a tiger and a duck.

I met a boy named Boo Boo. Honestly. On his birth certificate and everything. It is a cute nickname, though.
