The origin is uncertain. Has been connected with բոց ‎(bocʿ) and Latin focus. Ačaṙyan derives the word from the Biblical place-name Բոսոր ‎(Bosor, Bozrah); compare Isaiah 63:1 Իսկ այս ո՞վ է որ դիմեալ գայ յԵդովմայ․ կարմրութիւն ձորձոց իւրոց ի Բոսորայ։ ‎(Isk ays o?v ē or dimeal gay yEdovmay; karmrutʿiwn jorjocʿ iwrocʿ i Bosoray., Who is this who comes from Edom, from the city of Bozrah, with his clothing stained red?).
