Baby Girl Name - Bozenna?

Opinions on the name ‘Bozenna’?

I really like the nicknames that you could use.

  • [name_f]Zenna[/name_f]
  • Bozie
  • [name_u]Bo[/name_u]

I’m not a fan of Bozenna, sorry. It has quite a blunt, brutish sound to me.

I do like the idea of [name_f]Zenna[/name_f] as a nickname, but Bozenna is usually pronounced “bo-[name_f]ZHEN[/name_f]-ah” (“zh” like in “pleasure”), so it doesn’t really work [name_f]IMO[/name_f]. [name_u]Bo[/name_u] is sweet though, and I can definitely see that working.

I like it, but I would spell it with the proper diacritic, [name_u]Bo[/name_u]żenna. Żenna would be a cute nickname, as is [name_u]Bo[/name_u].

I agree with [name_f]Katinka[/name_f], sorry. The immediate tease that comes to mind is Bozo.

Bozenna isn’t totally my style, but I think it is a fine name.

But if it is the nicknames you prefer I would look around for more options. I truly believe that you should love both the full name and nickname.

Oh cool, a Slavic name for a change :slight_smile:

The original is pronounced [name_u]BO[/name_u]-zhen-na and spelled with one n. Open “o” as in, hm, law or awesome perhaps? (Not “oh” as in [name_u]Bo[/name_u] or [name_u]Beau[/name_u])

The meaning is [name_u]Christmas[/name_u]-related (“božić”,) sort of like [name_u]Noel[/name_u] and Noëlle in [name_m]French[/name_m].

I like it! And I would use [name_f]Zenna[/name_f] as a nn. I understand that the name sounds harsh to non-Slavic ears, though.

[name_f]Zenna[/name_f] and [name_u]Bo[/name_u] are cute nicknames, but I really dislike Bozenna, unfortunately.

I knew a Bozenna. She went by [name_u]Bo[/name_u].

Where are you from?
My grandparents on my mom’s side are Croatian.
I have an aunt named [name_f]Bozena[/name_f], pronounced Bozhena, with a long e.

It doesn’t really work with an American accent imo.
[name_u]Bo[/name_u] is cute.

While I personally don’t care for Bozenna (sorry) I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_u]Bo[/name_u]!! But let me say this: I think it is great to have a unique name, and not the typical name that four girls in her class will also have . If you both like the name, go with it :slight_smile:

I’m not the biggest fan of it, and I like really out there names. I gotta say that [name_f]Zenna[/name_f] itself is quite beautiful. Cute on a baby, but an adult could absolutely wear it. Maybe have a middle name with [name_u]Beau[/name_u], or [name_u]Bo[/name_u] in it? [name_f]Zenna[/name_f] [name_u]Beau[/name_u] sounds pretty legit to me.

Thank you. We really are leaning towards Bozenna. We love it! We don’t have any relation to where the name came from, but we just LOOOOVE it!!
