Origin of the nameEdit
Both members of the group have a Bo sound to their name. When combined, Jing Boran's Bo (柏) and Fu Xinbo's Bo (博), form the name BOBO.
Jing Boran's fanclub is known as BBF, standing for BaBy Face because during the My Hero competition, one judge called Jing Boran Baby Face.
Fu Xinbo's fanclub is known as BBT, standing for Bo Ban Tang, another term for lollipop. Fans of BoBo as a whole are called BBS, or BoBo'S fans.
Together, the three groups are called bohe (薄荷), or peppermint. In Chinese, "he" also has the meanings of to be together and peace.
