bohemian means: They are someone who lives an alternative lifestyle. They are optimists above all, although they may be a bit cynical at times. It makes sense…sort of.

What else does bohemian mean?

- The movement of poets and artists in France in the late 19th century, particularly in Paris. Bohemians believed that living was possible outside the mainstream, bourgeois culture. Bohemians opposed Salon, the French institution which controlled France’s literary and art markets until the beginning of the 20th century. They believed literature and art should be revolutionary. Many of them drank absinthe and met in cafes. Bohemians could be considered politically radical as they were either anarchists, or members of the Commune de Paris in the Franco-Prussian War. Although the Bohemian Movement died at the end of the century, it had an important influence on other movements, such as the Beat Generation, surrealism and punk rock. (in Slang Dictionary, added by Renee Mcdowell)
- Noun. A person viewed as different and strange by society. Bohemians are controlled by their imagination, which can often lead to them being destroyed. Bohemians don’t care about money, and many spend their time creating music, literature and art. The world without Bohemians would be boring. (in Slang Dictionary, added by Avah Moss)
- Bohemians are able to live in other places, which are areas that might not be suitable for their normal lifestyle. Wealth is not their top priority. Money is only a means of survival, so they can live for their artscraftmusicliterature…etc. (in Slang Dictionary, added by Norberto Alonso)
- This vague term was used to describe people who lead an “alternative” lifestyle, often one that is artistic. Although not synonymous with hippie, the term has been used to refer to people who live an “alternative” lifestyle. This term was first used in 19th-century France to describe non-conventional artists. It was meant to make comparisons between these types of artist and Romani gypsies who were today part the Czech Republic. (in Slang Dictionary, added by Kyle Mcfarland)
