When you hover over "boy," one of the translations is "mbuachaill."

Is there a reason for this in a different grammatical context, or is it just a spelling difference?

Yes, the reason is introduced a little later. In Irish words beginning with some letters get an "uru" in certain circumstances, such as when preceeded by the definite article "an".

They'll teach you about it shortly.
