How Popular Is The Name Bon

Family name origins & meanings

  • 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.
