Perhaps related to Old English bodan (“ground, foundation, bottom, abyss”), from Proto-Germanic *budnaz, *budną (“ground”), from Proto-Indo-European *bhudhn-, *bhudhm- (“earth, bottom”), in the sense that the body returns to the ground, or perhaps in analogy to the body's limbs, when viewed from a reclining position, extend from the body as trees from the ground.
