Bavaria, Germany is the original homeland of the Bohnet family. Bohnet is a patronymic name, a type of surname that derived from the given name of the father of the original bearer. Bohnet was derived from the Germanic personal name Bono, which is in turn derived from the Old Nordic word bon, which means demand or petition.

Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Bohnet include Bohn, Bohen, Boehn, Bohenn, Bohne, Bohene, Bohenne, Boen, Boene, Boenn, Boenne, Boehne and many more.

First found in Bavaria, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation.

So too was the opportunity for tenant farmers to own their own land. Ample land and opportunity awaited the settlers who went to such states as Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, as well as Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Bohnet or a variant listed above:
