Name Meaning

1 English, North German, Dutch, Frisian, and Danish: from a Germanic personal name, Boio or Bogo, of uncertain origin. It may represent a variant of Bothe , with the regular Low German loss of the dental between vowels, but a cognate name appears to have existed in Old English ( see Boyce ), where this feature does not occur. Boje is still in use as a personal name in Friesland.2 Dutch: nickname from Middle Dutch boy(e) ‘boy’, ‘lad’.
