*original spelling probably Büman in medieval German (until 1617). Buwman and Bouwann were used later (until 1650). We traditionally pronounce it as in “to take a bow,” as English and American officials spelled it as it sounded. Other pronunciations are still used around the world. Today’s spellings include: Bauman(n), Bauer(man), Bower(man), Boman, Bouman, Bohmann, Bohlin, Beauman, Baughman, Boughman, Bachman, etc.
