Whenever I see this name, I pronounce it "bony face" in my head.

This would be a very strange name to have. It could be very easily turned into something to tease him with. Aside from the "your face" jokes, bullies might call him Bonifascist.

I honestly love this name. I would consider it as a middle name or something. I don't know if I would give it to my kid as a first name. That way I could call him Boniface but everyone else had to call him something different, lol.

I like this name in French, but I can't stand it in English. In that language, it sounds pretentious and like a name that fundamentalist Catholic parents stuck in the Middle Ages would name their son. This should remain a French name.

Please don't name your kid this. You will save them from a lot of teasing! If I were 12 and saw someone with this name, I would say "Hey, there goes bony face!"
