The name Boehner, which is a local surname, reveals that the original bearer of the name once lived, held land, or was born in the historic kingdom of Bohemia, which was enclosed by mountains and the celebrated Bohemian forest. In the Holy Roman Empire, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and after the 12th century, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. When coupled with the German preposition von, which means from or of, local names can indicate that the bearer of the name was an aristocrat. However, in modern times, the von is frequently dropped from the surname. The name was derived from the Old German word Boheim, which is the word for a Bohemian.
