How do you feel about [name_u]Beaux[/name_u] for a boy?

i love the name! i prefer the spelling beau or bo, but it’s one of my top names for boys.

I find the -x ending unnecessary. I’m assuming it’s pronounced the same as [name_u]Beau[/name_u], and to be honest, to me it just looks misspelled and reminds me of “box”. But I love the sound of Beau/Beaux, I think it’s such a fun name with really cool vibes!


I have a little cousin [name_u]Beaux[/name_u]! I think it’s cute, personally I prefer [name_u]Beau[/name_u], but if you have some connection where the x would be meaningful, I think it’s totally doable

I think it sounds cool, but i prefer [name_u]Beau[/name_u]

I don’t like how the x looks and is pronounced but I do like the spelling of [name_u]Bo[/name_u]

[name_u]Beaux[/name_u] is the plural form of the [name_u]French[/name_u] word “Beau”, so the x is unnecessary when using it as a name. It doesn’t change the pronunciation, but it changes the meaning.


i love it but I keep thinking of bucks

I love [name_u]Beaux[/name_u] it’s such a handsome name.

This is 100% a dog’s name in [name_f]Louisiana[/name_f] unfortunately

This name is so LSU chic lolol

For some reason, the spelling [name_u]Beaux[/name_u] annoys me a little. It makes no sense grammatically and it’s unnecessarily complicated.

As in multiple boyfriends? That’s a “no” from me.

Yeah, I find this a bit distracting I’m sorry. [name_u]Beau[/name_u] is lovely though :slight_smile:

I prefer [name_u]Beau[/name_u] or [name_u]Bo[/name_u], but I like it. Very very much like a boys name to me. I’ve also heard of [name_u]Bo[/name_u] as a NN for [name_u]Robert[/name_u], which I think works really nicely.

I love Bo/Beau… but agree that the X feels unnecessary and also confusing, due to the changed meaning of it being the plural form. This whole time I’ve been reading through the thread I just keep thinking “but WHY is it plural?” I guess if there’s a good reason for it, why not, but I think it’ll cause a lot of frustration with spelling etc. that could be avoided with [name_u]Bo[/name_u] or [name_u]Beau[/name_u]. I think people not familiar with [name_u]French[/name_u] might not know it’s said the same as [name_u]Beau[/name_u], too - just much simpler to go with that imo. [name_u]Love[/name_u] the sound/name in general though! [name_m]Boaz[/name_m] nn [name_u]Bo[/name_u] is in my own top three :heart:

[name_u]Beaux[/name_u] is the plural form of [name_u]Beau[/name_u]. Embarrassing if he ever goes to a French-speaking country or [name_f]Louisiana[/name_f].

I prefer [name_u]Beau[/name_u], as [name_u]Beaux[/name_u] makes me think of the [name_u]French[/name_u] plural (i.e. multiple suitors).

[name_f]My[/name_f] first thought is, why is it plural?

[name_u]Beau[/name_u] is fine. I’d stick with it.
