    Beaux is bow(pronounced) don't see a problem...heck no one ever says my name right (thanks parents) . All my kids names are either mispronounced or spelt. And due to my patents inventing my name and giving my brother foreign name...Soren (Danish)...I made sure my kids names normal. Oh well fail...seems kiara grace, brayden, lily are a fail. As parents can't win...at school all will pronounce or spell wrong. Kiara at high school.."kira'

    My name is french. None of my family are French. Dad just thought the name was pretty

    'Beau' without the x is French anyway - it means handsome. If you put x at the end of a French word it turns it into a plural, like gateau and gateaux... That's really annoyed me for some reason!
