A Bohemian ({{#invoke:IPAc-en|main}}) is a resident of Bohemia, a region of the Czech Republic or the former Kingdom of Bohemia, a region of the former Crown of Bohemia (lands of the Bohemian Crown). In a wider sense it refers to residents of the Czech lands or the today's Czech Republic in general. In English, the word "Bohemian" was used to denote the Czech people as well as the Czech language before the word "Czech" became prevalent in the early 20th century.<ref name = Oxford/>

In a separate meaning derived from the French word referring to "gypsies," or Romani people, "Bohemian" may also denote "a socially unconventional person, especially one who is involved in the arts" (see Bohemianism).<ref name = Oxford>"Bohemian", Oxford Dictionaries online, Oxford University Press, Retrieved on: 2011-09-14</ref>
