    Bo for a Girl?

    Thoughts on Bo for a girl? How should it be spelled -- Bo, Bow, or Beau?

    I love Bo for a girl! Precise, lively, sweet but rough and tumble! Bo is my fave spelling

    Bo (with that spelling) was the name of the character of the young girl in the movie Signs. I think it can totally work for a girl and with that spelling too. It means to live which I think is a great meaning.

    I think it would be a cute nickname but I don’t love it as a full name. If you do use it as a full name I’d go with Beau

    My favorite full name is Isabeau

    If you watch the show blackish, the moms name is rainbow and she goes by Bow

    I like Bo (with this spelling) as a girls name. I think it’s very sweet and full of energy.

    I prefer the Bo spelling. Bo Derek was a popular actress in the '80s, so to me it is fairly familiar as a girl's name.

    Beau seems a bit odd to me since it's the French word for "handsome" but if you don't speak French then that's probably not an issue.

    Beau is distinctly male for me, even more than Boe.

    But, I love Bo for a girl. Takes me back to Signs as well, and I love that.

    Beau is all boy, but I like Bo for a boy or a girl. I think I prefer it as a nickname, though. Rebecca Woolf has a daughter Boheme who goes by Bo. Also like it as a nickname for Robin.
