Potential linux find utility bug / misdocumentation

I performed the following find on a fedora 21 linux i686 32-bit system

address@hidden ~]$ find . -iname Bon*


address@hidden ~]$ find . -iname bon*



I expected the same output since I used the -iname (ignore case name option).

I want to ignore case in the directory search; it was expected that the case 

of the to be matched string value would also be ignored. Obviously this is not

the case. The current behavior does not seem to make sense.

Thank You,
