'Bo' Baby Names

Bo-sounding names are beautiful

In 2024, bohemian-esque baby names starting with ‘Bo’ – such as Bowie and Bodhi – are having a surge in favour with expectant parents.

Given their growing popularity, more names beginning with ‘Bo’ are climbing name lists.

Rarer names and other bohemian sounding monikers are also forecasted to enter the mix and take off.

According to Nameberry – the world’s largest site devoted to baby names – of all the names that start with B, those with a ‘B’ and ‘O’ are the biggest trend.
