Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *bukura, derivative of *buk- (lush, lusty), from Proto-Indo-European *bʰoHu- (to grow, swell), close to Proto-Germanic *būkaz (belly, body), compare Icelandic búkur (torso), Old High German būh (belly), English bouk (belly, trunk, torso, carcass). Also akin to Old Czech buj (mad, foolish), Sanskrit [script needed] (bhū́yān, bigger, stronger)). Similar sense development as with kolmë. Related to bukël.
