Oops, I forgot with whom the thread started. :-)

You've got a point about the spelling of the first name. But the surname
looks like a pretty run-of-the-mill French-origin name to me.

A Google search turns up 934,000 Boudreaux entries, including countless
businesses, beginning with "Boudreaux's Cajun Kitchen."

There's even a Boudreaux Joke Collection!

Some of them are really, really bad. ;-)
