I love it! It’s cool and strong and simple.

emmapants42 Says:


For me, Boone will always be the tiny crying cowboy from The Indian in the Cupboard series. I still love it.

Emily Roy Says:


My son's name is Boone and for those considering it, I have ZERO name regret. It fits him so well... it's a simple name yet strong and has a good meaning. Also not at all trendy which I like. His middle name is Alan. A two syllable middle name goes well. :)

Yuma Says:


Oh ok. I disagree!

Rosie2525 Says:


I think it's a cool name. I don't get all the rude comments! I think it's a strong and handsome name! :)

The sound.

Why is that? Just curious

Alaina Says:


This is the weirdest name ever!? Why would they name a baby/kid/teen/adult/elder this? This name all sounds bad for every time they get older!

Mikey_pp Says:


Bune /Boone is one of the demons from the Goetia. My first thought was that this was a cheesy pagan name or something.

Wittyusername103 Says:


I think this is kinda cute but gosh it would be so hard to find a middle.

brandi edmonds Says:


We are seriously considering this name..... It's kinda growing on me. Most likely will be a middle name ... We are considering Turner Boone and Titus Boone and also Jaxson Boone

I have a thing for names with the double o in them. Boone, along with Booker and Cooper, are some of my favorites.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I went to an improv camp once, and there was a guy named Boone at it. I didn't really like him, and I'm not a fan of his name, either. Doon is better. Or his best friend's name, Keats.

Amber Renee Says:


I really like the meaning but I'm unsure of the name it's self.
