Boda Name Meaning

Spanish: nickname from boda ‘wedding’ (Latin vota ‘(marriage) vows’, plural of votum, from vovere ‘to vow’). The reasons for its adoption as a surname are probably anecdotal. Hungarian: from a derivative of Bod a personal name, believed by some to be derived from a Turkic word meaning ‘twig’, but the etymology is uncertain. In Hungary such one-element personal names of pagan origin were given to servants, usually before the 14th and 15th centuries when Christian names became dominant. Hungarian: possibly from Bóda, a pet form of the personal name Boldizsár, Hungarian form of Balthazar. Bulgarian: from Bogda, a short form of the male personal name Bogdan, or the female personal name Bogdana (see Bogdan).
