    Name Meaning

    Scottish: variant of Bonner .Irish (Donegal): Scottish name adopted as a translation of Gaelic Ó Cnáimhsighe ‘descendant of Cnáimhseach’, a byname meaning ‘midwife’. This word seems to be a derivative of cnámh ‘bone’ (with the feminine ending -seach), but if so the reason for this is not clear.Polish: from German Bohner or Boner ‘bean grower’.
