Etymology: "tosh" might be a blend/portmanteau word/neologism made from the words "bosh" and "trash."
Also a nickname: (term of endearment) used in Scotland - possibly abreviation of "MAKIN tosh" could also be relevant to "rubbissh" interpretation.

Nonsense. "The slang tosh is a blend of the words 'trash' and 'bosh.' Bosh comes from the Turkish word for empty. Tosh means 'nonsense' or 'empty, worthless talk.'" (contributed by Sebastian Chen)
