  1. Beaux

  3. Beau is short for beautiful miracle

  4. Beau reminded us of old southern royalty and David for my uncles name who passed away so we came up with Beau David which sounded very nice together.

  5. Had a dream one night that reminded me that I liked the name Beau. I really thought I was gonna have a girl so I was gonna name her this (even though i was the only one that liked it for a girl ). Turns out baby’s a boy and we start coming up with all kinds of names. One day,My water breaks unexpectedly at 37wks and on the way to the hospital, i ask my husband, what’s his name? He said, “one of my bestfriends growing up was named Beau, i liked that name.” So then there was Beau!

  6. I chose the name beau, when my family and I all sat up looking online for names, we came across BEAU!! I was inlove with the name but already had a name picked out, ZACHARY, as soon as weeks went on by I was confused on making a decision, until the name BEAU start to grow on me…..it was starting with B, His fathers name is Brendan, as he was growing up his nickname was bj or beej. I wanted that trait to keep going, so I wanted his name to start with a B, beau was perfect, his nick name is beauj & beau beau.
    When I was pregnant, I had two names Zachary & beau, I knew when I saw my son for the first time he was a beau I guess you just have this instinct and what name is right for them. I couldn’t imagine his name being anything else. I love the name beau, I don’t dislike anything about it,

    On the 23rd of September beau will be 1 year old. I can’t describe the feeling of loving some so much. He is such a clever handsome young boy, I can’t wait to see what the future will be like with him. He brightens my day up like nothing else……
    he is crawling around, standing up on furnitures doesn’t yet have the confidence to let go and walk he can say
    -dad,mum,nan nan, car, hi, no,bubba
    He can wave to people & he can put his hand on his eyes to play peekaboo, he is very aware of his surroundings. He loves to play with his toys and loves his food. He loves vegemite toast & scotch finger biscuits
    He can pick his own food up. He has 6 teeth. He is always a smiley happy baby.
    He is growing as time goes on.. and becoming a beautiful human anybody could love. Xxx thank you, love his mumma

  7. We live on a farm and wanted something unique for our first child! Beau was it and do not know many others named it!
