Name Meaning

1 English: nickname for a man with some fancied resemblance to a he-goat (Old English bucc(a)) or a male deer (Old English bucc). Old English Bucc(a) is found as a personal name, as is Old Norse Bukkr. Names such as Walter le Buk (Somerset 1243 ) are clearly nicknames.2 English: topographic name for someone who lived near a prominent beech tree, such as Peter atte Buk (Suffolk 1327 ), from Middle English buk ‘beech’ (from Old English bōc).3 German: from a personal name, a short form of Burckhard ( see Burkhart ).
