    Name Meaning

    English (mainly Devon and Cornwall):

    nickname from Norman French buge ‘mouth’ (Old French bouche, Late Latin bucca), applied either to someone with a large or misshapen mouth or to someone who made excessive use of his mouth, i.e. a garrulous, indiscreet, or gluttonous person. The word is also recorded in Middle English in the sense ‘victuals supplied for retainers on a military campaign’, and the surname may therefore also have arisen as a metonymic occupational name for a medieval quartermaster.

    variant of Bugg .
