This is also a Dutch name, my cousin bears this name too. It is an ordinary name in the Netherlands, but not very common.

I like the name Bo on a girl more than on a male.

Little Bo Peep.

I really like the name Bo, on a girl. The little girl from 'Signs' held the name well. It works as a girl's name.

It can also be an alternate spelling of Beau.

A semi famous bearer: Bo Hartlieb from the novel by Cornelia Funke: The Thief Lord. Although, it said his real name was Boniface, the name fit his sweet, curious personality.

Means "who lives in one place", or a land owner, in contrast to being a hunter or nomad. In Viking ages or eariler, only used by Jarls or similair. Since 1800's often used as fore-names by common people in Sweden, Denmark and sometimes elsewhere.

It's a girl's name too. It is my mother's friend's name. I think it is a good name, but I shall never name my son this as I feel that it is very feminine.

I don't understand why I like this name on a boy, but I do. I think it's adorable on a girl, now that people have mentioned it.

Bo is Sebastion's male child in the book The Nature of Jade, by Deb Caletti.

My friend named her son Bo but spelled it Beaux. I think it is really cool, but would use it for a girl.

I once met a Robert who went by Bo. I think it's good as a short form on a boy ONLY! On a girl, it's ugly.

I also knew someone named Robert who went by Bo. I think it sounds really cool, but only as a nickname.

Bo is a really awesome and cool name, and should only be used for boys. I would rate this name a 11 out of 10, because it is so good.

My name is Bo and I'm a girl. I was named after Bo Derek apparently. But I think the name Bo is becoming more neutral nowadays. Like Taylor, Alex etc.

Bo is very common in Denmark. It means "to live" as in "to live in a house" (at bo i et hus).

I like this as a nickname for Boris.
Aureliano  4/25/2010
In Denmark we would ONLY use this on a boy. Some names just only works on one gender.
― Anonymous User  5/26/2010
To me, this seems too short to be someone's full name.
Marauder  9/5/2014
I only personally know one Bo, and he uses it as a nickname for Robert.

Bo for a girl? No way!.. It's okay for a boy only.

My name is Bo and I am a girl. I am not named after anyone and my name is not short for anything. :)

Bo is NOT a girl's name in ANY circumstance. I'd probably crack up if I was talking with a beautiful woman and she told me her name was.. Bo.

Bo Burnham, the comedian from Massachustts.

Also short for Beauregard or any name beginning with the sound Bo.
