My husband and I have finally agreed on a name. We like "Bo" for short and wanted something more formal for his full name and we found the name Boden / Bohdan. I personally love Bohdan bc its the actual way it is spelled in Hebrew and means "Gift from God". The more modern version I suppose is Boden. My husband isn't great with spelling and thinks Bohdan sounds like Bo Dan lol.

What do you think ? Boden or Bohdan ? I'd add a poll but I'm on mobile. Any feedback would be great , thank you !

It depends. Are you wanting people to pronounce it Bow-Dan or Bo-Den? Because I look at those as two totally pronounciations.

I want it to be pronounced bo - den but I personally think both spellings look to be pronounced that way. Maybe that's just me !

I pronounce Bohdan as "bow-den" but maybe it is because I know the name?

How about Beau- pronounced Bo. 

I'd be inclined to go with Bohdan, the actual spelling, but I prefer Boden.

I would pronounce Bohdan as Bah den.
