Bon Name 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).
