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 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.

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.
-- lilpimpteller  8/4/2015
Bo for a girl? No way!.. It's okay for a boy only.
-- Anonymous User  3/9/2016
My name is Bo and I am a girl. I am not named after anyone and my name is not short for anything. :)
-- Anonymous User  7/5/2016
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.
