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).

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).
