  Gypsies in the region are fairly new and the name was already there for centuries, not even gypsies call themselves Bohemians, at least I never heard this and I bet you will not neither. Further I don t even know why any descendant of gypsy families should be called Bohemian. I have read one other book on the Gypsies - Australian Gypsies: Their Secret History - which is written in recent times through various interviews. The stereotype Gypsy is dispelled in both books but this one is far more personnel and embracing.
