The RAE gives for the etymology of this word 'perhaps from Celtic, from Proto-Indo European *bhudh-skō, cf. Celtic *boudi-, winning, victory, Old Irish búaid, victory.' Does this sound reasonable? I couldn't find anything similar to this on Appendix:List of Proto-Indo-European roots, so I also need help on the formatting for the PIE. Nadando 02:03, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

I don’t know about the PIE forms, but there seems to be evidence that buscar is related to English busk (to cruise about [on a ship]) < French busquer (to shift, filch, prowl). Possibly related to bosco (wood) and bush related to hunting. —Stephen 10:01, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

"Buscar" is also Spanish for "to search" or "to seek." The Green Knight
