My family has pronounced it: bo be in, with the o and e being long vowel sounds. Like any name I think it has numerous pronounciations and deriviations and there are probably stories to go behind those changes such as family disowning, regional accents, language accents, etc. It would be interesting tracing those things back. I just took a linguistics class in college and it would definitely be a project, but I bet there is a way to do that.
