Okay, so not really. The girls named the dog after their grandfather, who went by the nickname " Diddley." Bo is a reference to singer "Bo Diddley," according to the Washington Post.
I guess maybe I should feel weird that my child has a "dog" name, but truly, I don't. My Bo has grown into his name quite well and I can't imagine him being named anything else. Sure, some people may immediately associate the name with a dog, or with a Duke boy, but I still think my little Bobo is the cutest little boy there ever was. And definitely the cutest human or animal named Bo. :)
