Bosnian, a South Slavic language, is a standardized version of the Serbo-Croatian language and is mutually intelligible with Shtokavian, Croatian, Serbian and Montenegrin. The Bosnian language uses both Latin and Cyrillic alphabets and is notable for having borrowed an eclectic assortment of Arabic, Turkish and Persian words into their lexicon. This is largely due to the people’s interaction with these other cultures. The oldest known scripts from the Bosnian language dates back to the late 10th and 11th centuries A.D. Bosnian names and words have an old and historic legacy and tradition. For help selecting a Bosnian baby name and researching name meanings, visit Baby Name World’s growing list of Bosnian names.
