Last name origin & meaning:
- French : approbatory (or ironic) nickname, from Old French bon ‘good’ (Latin bonus).
- French : occasionally from the Latin personal name Bonus (likewise meaning ‘good’), which was borne by a minor 3rd-century Christian saint, martyred at Rome with eleven companions under the Emperor Vespasian. It was adopted as a personal name partly in his honor and partly because of the transparently well-omened meaning.
- Hungarian : from a short form of the old ecclesiastical name Bonifác (see Boniface).
- A Bon, of unrecorded origin, with the secondary name Lacombe is documented in St. Ours, Quebec, in 1671.
