Does anyone remember "LadyHawke" with Rutger Hauer and Michelle Pfeiffer?  The female character's name was Isabeau.

That I did not remember, but I keep thinking of an old Golden Girls episode.  Blanche is telling Rose about her old friend Anderbeau Johnson. 

Blanche: I lost Anderbeau and her beau.  Now do you understand why I can't tell Dorothy?
Rose:  I don't even know who Anderbobo is!

It would indeed make it plural which is what I've been telling everyone who tells me that.

Well, I'm in Louisiana so Beau is a very appropriate name for a boy in this area.  In fact, I've been getting advice to add an X to the end to make it more cajun and less French.   ::) :P

"Beau" is how it'd be spelled. "Beaux" is plural.
Words mean things.

That's what I kept thinking.  Well, we found out Friday that it is officially a boy!  So Beau it is.

Just saw an article about parents who apparently love Twitter a little too much. Baby boy Hashtag Jameson.

I just saw that headline this morning, but I thought it was a girl.

The little bit I read said that the parents announced the birth and name via Facebook. How ironic. That poor child. I hope it's a joke or typo or something. HuffPost had a humorous list of questions for the parents; my favorite was #4 Will she only be able to speak in 140-character phrases?

Parents like that put the "twit" in Twitter.

Krystyna is Polish spelling.  Only doing part is...making your child have to correct the spelling for he rest of their life.

Many of the posts in this thread now seem to assume that everyone is a North American of anglo-saxon origin , so different spellings are not checked to see if they are cultural, ethnic or otherwise "normal" somewhere that isn't a flyover state in America. The original premise was amusing, but now to be honest, it's made me uncomfortable to see perfectly normal names in other heritages held up for derision simply because they are unfamiliar to the poster.

It's not unfamiliar. I am just wondering why a Y and an I. I can understand 2 Y's. It is the y and the I that boggles my mind. And FTR I share the name with this girl, just a different spelling. The name Christina has always boggled my mind... mainly because it has a thousand spellings.
