    Alternate spellings

    My husband and I are TTC so we have naturally begun discussing names. In the blog, I recently came across the name Boman and we both like it a lot! The more common spelling, I imagine, would be Bowman as in the surname but I'm curious as no all of your preferences on the matter.

    Boman or Bowman? And why?

    Thanks!

    BOWMAN. In all caps, no less. I absolutely love this name; it's a great alternative to Archer, and it's on my long list. I pronounce Boman like roamin', whereas Bowman is, well, BOW-man.

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Winifred or Simon Atlas | Atlas Dov or Alice Violetta | Lucien Wilde or Lucinda Jane | Jane Lucinda or Jack Marlowe | Marlowe Charles or Roscoe Thomas | Charles ' Charlie' Wallace or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Eloise Lily or Elliot Darwin | Iris Cordelia or Thea Marina | Jasper Augustus or Juniper 'June' Lovelace | Julian Felix or Judah 'Jude' Reeve

    Just a grad student dreaming ahead...

    Yeah. This really needs the 'w' to work. I'd read it as 'bomm-an' otherwise.

    Bowman. Boman is just too similar to Roman/Ramon/etc., for me.

    It just needs the "W" - without the "W", its just confusing. Use Bo as a nickname if you want but please keep the W.
