Bodhi – is a Sanskrit name, meaning “awakening, enlightenment”.  If you’re a nature name lover, Bodhi also doubles as a tree name.  Several celebrities have used the name Bodhi for their bouncing baby boys the past year. A fun little name to say, Bodhi gets extra cool points for being the name of Patrick Swayze’s character in the film Point Break (pictured above).
