From Middle French Bohême, from Late Latin Boiohaemum, compound of Proto-Germanic *haimaz (home) and Boio- ‘the Boii’, the Celtic tribe previously inhabiting the area. The endonym is from Proto-Celtic *boio and could ultimately be from Proto-Indo-European *gʷṓws, a reference to cattle owners, or from *bʰeyh₂- (warrior, strong hitter).
