Alternative forms[edit]


Bucur (a given name) +‎ -ești ‎(patronymic, personal name suffix). Bucur, the name of the legendary shepherd who is said to have founded the city, is often considered to be related to bucurie ‎(joy) and bucura ‎(to become glad), but it may alternatively be derived from a lost word in Romanian relating to pastoral life, ultimately linked to Latin buculus ‎(young bull, ox, steer). Compare Old French bugle, French beugler [1].


Proper noun[edit]

București m ‎(definite nominative/accusative Bucureștiul, definite genitive/dative Bucureștiului, vocative Bucureștiule)

  1. Bucharest (capital of Romania)
