Meaning:Fortunate, auspicious; Pretty
Boni is a boy's name with multiple origins and endless possibilities for inspiring baby. Back in eighth-century Germany, this name's longer spelling, Boniface, was all the rage thanks to Saint Boniface. This monk made a huge impact on Germany's intellectual and political climate during the Middle Ages. As a result, Boni earned its Latin meaning, "fortunate" or "auspicious." Boni may also be rooted in the Spanish name Bonita and Scottish Bonnie, which both translate to "pretty." Although short and sweet names are totally in right now, you may prefer Bonnie, Bonni, Bonnibel, or even Bunnie.
