For a boy.
I love the meaning...what does it make you think of when you first hear it?

Yep, definitely Doyle then. Sorry Frigg.

Yes, would stay clear - sorry sad

Yes, Patrick Swayze in Point Break. Fabulous film!

I think of a spectacularly pretentious family who live round the corner and have a child with that name (and a triplebarrelled surname)

Love it. Was on my list for DD incase she was a DS. Now on my reserve list for round 2!

Although I am a little cautious... Would a Bodhi be taken seriously in job interviews.

Anyone else read Freakonomics?!! wink

Bodie and Doyle. On seeing it I thought "Body"

It's on my list of names for my future cat. Not being sarcastic, it really is! But I love Point Break [not very spiritual emoticon]

It is a good name for a cat...

I had a dog with that name - he was lovely!

1. Point Break
2. Steely Dan Bohdisattva

Both good references as far as I'm concerned grin

LOVE. IT.

Back when I was a Buddhist I was going to use it (and convince dh with the whole Point Break thing!) Hmmm... might still pop it on the list. Nothing on this thread is convincing about it being bad!

Point Break.
It's what our dog is called (blonde, shaggy, water-loving, thieving renegade that he is!)
