The goat was popularly associated with lecherous behaviour and the deer with timidity and speed. The surname may also be a shortened form of longer occupational names, for example Roger le Bucmanger' ‘dealer in bucks or venison’, (Warwickshire 1221) or Walter Bucswayn perhaps ‘goatherd’ (Somerset 1327).
