    I agree with the others that the W is necessary.

    I read bomb-en when I first saw Boman. .... reminds me of Obama

    Oh, yes, definitely Bowman. Since it means bowman, a synonym of archer, it seems silly to remove the W that reflects the name's origin and meaning. Boman looks like it's missing something--the W.

    Still dreaming:
    Tobias Rory Benjamin ~ Crispin Isaiah ~ Ransom Horatio ~ Lucius Olórin ~ James Deliverance
    Una Marguerite/Oona Sylvestra ~ Jessamyn Agnes ~ Branwen Evangeline ~ Alice Emmanuelle ~ Christiana Linnet

    Actually, Boman with that spelling means "Great Mind" so adding the W changes the meaning of the name as well. Boman isn't simply an alternative spelling that I made up.

    Ah, sorry. Live and learn. I knew you didn't make Boman up, since I've seen it before, but I did assume Boman and Bowman were the same name. It's your choice which you prefer--I still prefer Bowman.

    Bowman, Boman looks like a made up name.
