strawberrytree:Very Southern. It's nms, but I don't mind Beau. Not a fan of Beauregard.

Beauregard is a bit like Pointdexter- the punchline to an unfunny joke.
I know an awful lot of poodles names Beau.
DH's name is Beau (full name, not NN). I have to admit, it took me awhile to get used to, but I do like that it's different and it fits him. He likes it, but has always had to deal with mispronunciations.
Overall, I think it's a cute name for a baby/child but also ages well!
FWIW we live in the midwest. GL!
HeatherS2010:Thanks! I was hoping it wasn't just me who didn't love it. I'm trying to give DH's name ideas a chance but when you are working with things like Remington, Wolf and Beauregard...it's tough.
LOLs. I think your DH needs a pet. All of those sound like dog names to me. I know three Beaus (one of which is Beauregard - they are a great dane mix, a boxer and a pit bull), one Wolf (he's a German shepherd) and two Remys (one of which is Remington - they are a terrier/pug mix and a Boston).
jburdet1:I really love Beau! Not a real fan of Beauregard because it sounds a little pretentious to me.
This exactly. FWIW a friend just named her new baby Beau, and it totally fits him.
