Bowen’s vs. Nickname

We love the names Bowen and Beau. We do not like the spelling Bo at all! We feel it looks immature. Beau is a full true name. So my question is, can we name our son Bowen, but use Beau as his nickname? Or are we stick with Bo? Would it be a hassle to make sure he went by Beau? We may just change the name all together.

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
