Beau or Micah

Hi there,


I have the most beautiful and perfect little 2 week old boy in my arms with no name!

When he was born I looked at him and said he was the most beautiful boy in the whole world, my little Beau.

In the hospital I just queitly called him Beau while my husband went through the whole baby nae book ariting names down.

We are tossing between:





I am relly drawn to Micah and to have his name as Micah Beau Brazier

but I also do really like Beau Luca Brazier / Beau Lief Brazier


Other names we liked are:


Bryce (family ties to this)



We live by the ocean and both love surfing and snowboarding.

He is a tiny wee baby with blonde hair and blue eyes.

He is just so handsome....


but how to decide?


If we had another child and was a boy, I couldn't call him Beau if we didn't call this one Beau, as it seems weird.


anyway, any suggestions would be great..


I want my baby named :)

I think Micah Beau, and you can still call him your little Beau. He could decide which to go by when he is a little older.

It sounds to me that you have in your arms a little boy named Beau. That's what you call him, that's how you think of him...what is holding you back from making that official? Is there something you or your spouse dislike about Beau as a first name?

On the flip side, have you tried calling him Micah?  You already know you can call him Beau. So now I would suggest spending a day or two addressing the baby as Micah and referring to him that way. See if it feels as "right" as Beau.

You have a great list, so I don't think you can go wrong either way. (Full disclosure: I have a son with middle name Luca, so of course I think that's an awesome choice!)

Your little Beau sounds adorable.  I think Beau is a great name!  Go with the name you love.  Go with the name that feels right.  You have a great list and can't go wrong so choose what feels good.  If my vote counted,  I'd vote Beau Luca or Beau Lief (I kind of love that one the most.) 

I agree with the previous posters question, is there something that is holding you back from Beau?

I agree..... you should name your son what you love. Beau Micah or Beau Luca sounds perfect.
