Boone Origin and Meaning

The name Boone is a boy's name meaning "blessing, lucky".

Boone is one of the advancing herd of lean and lanky cowboy names with a laid-back, backwoods, Western feel—and surprising French roots. It's inevitably linked with legendary frontiersman Daniel, and also with the positive connotations of the word boon. It debuted in the US Top 1000 in 2015.

T. (for Thomas) Boone Pickens is a high-profile business magnate; Boone Carlyle was a fiery character on TV's Lost.
