If I remember correctly, the original meaning of "bokeh" in Japanese was as a medical adjective used to describe the mental fuzziness or cognitive blurring of people with various stages of senility and dementia.  Then artists picked it up to describe out-of-focus rendering, stir retaining the sense of "blur."  Photographers narrowed it to mean the type and nature of out-of-focus blur either foreground or background.  There are technical definitions that relate to such things as two-edge bokeh, etc.  And there are subjective definitions such as creamy, smooth, edgy, harsh, etc.

I prefer the floral version of bokeh...  heh heh.
