Etymology[edit]

/puku.juki//pukju.ki//pupu.ki//ɸubu.ki/

From earlier 吹く雪 (ふくゆき, ​fukuyuki), which with sound change later evolved into fubuki. Compare etymology of its verb form 吹雪く (fubuku, to blow snow violently), which comes from the reduplication of ふ in 吹く (fuku, to blow)). (Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)
