Meaning of the baby name BOHDAN.

  

BOHDAN (Богдан).  A variant form of Slavic Bogdan (q.v.), meaning "God's gift." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  Usage: Bohemia (Czech Republic), Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine.
    Bohdan Khmelnytsky (d. 1657), was a hetman of the Zaporoxhian Cossack Hetmanate of Ukraine.  Bohdan Paczynski (d, 2007), was a Polish astronomer. (Wiki)

Among this people there now arose a man with a grievance, Bohdan Chmielnicki.  His farm had been burned and his infant son slain by a Polish noble; and he could obtain no redress.  Before the King himself it had been shown that he had no right to own land; and the King was not able to help him.  But Wladislaw put a sword in his hand, and told him, "You are a soldier now," and Bohdan served in his army. (Poland, Slocombe, 1916)
