Ditto the first comment the name Bojan (Boian, Boyan) is a Bulgarian one. It has several meanings - one is "to be afraid of God", another - "the one you should be afraid of". Usually the bearers of the name celebrate their name day on January 6 (St. Jordan).

The nomadic people of Eurasia who migrated into central and eastern Europe in the 6th century were called Avars. The leader who settled the Avars in the Pannonian plain up to the early 9th century, was called Bayan (Baïan).
The Avar name Bayan in Caucasian Avar language means Victor "Behun". It also could be translated as "Bo"=Army-Country of Huns.

Bojan is a SLAVIC name derived either from boi (battle) or boj (fear). Both are Slavic words hence the name is of Slavic origin.

Bojan (pronounced: boyan) is an Avaric (Obric) name, and it stands for: "Leader of a Horde".
Avars came to South Europe together with Slavic nations in the 500-600 ADs. Together with Serbs and some Macedonian Slavic tribes, they led the attack on Constantinopole in 626 AD. They had left toponyms in the Balkans like: Obrovac, Obrenovac.

Bojan and Bojana stem from the one and only word and that is "boj" - battle -. Bulgarians get over yourselves and stop hijacking everything. If you have once opened a book you'd have found that as Bulgars, a Turkic tribe, you have assimilated into Slavic culture. Period. Obrenovac et al stems from the personal name Obren which can be found in use still in Serbia. It comes from the verb "obresti (se)" - to find oneself -. All of them are Slavic names from Slavic words from Indo-European roots.

In Sweden, it's a female name, originally a nickname of names ending with -borg, like Ingeborg, Frideborg, Gunborg or Valborg (old Norse names, borg meaning "stronghold"). But since those names have fallen out of fashion, the name Bojan is also really rare now, I think all the Swedish Bojans are ladies born in the 1920's-1930's.

It's pronounced Boy-an. I think it sounds kind of funny and catchy, like a perky girl in the 1940's riding her bike and wearing sailor trousers.

There was a Swedish actress called Bojan Westin, 1927-2013. She played in over 30 Swedish films & tv series, the most popular being the soap Rederiet (The Shipping Company).
