(N.) “Beau Hunk” was commonly used to describe a “Stud Muffin” or very handsome man of Bohemian decent. In the early 20th Century, through 60's, people actually knew there was such a country of Bohemia. Bohemia became part of Czechoslovakia after World War I. There were many immigrants to the United Sates from this country in the late 19th Century and early 20th Century. As generations aged the term “Beau Hunk” faded from popularity. You can often times hear the term referenced in Hollywood movies of the time. The term Beau Hunk can be used in general terms as a tag name and as a complimentary term.
