Etymology[edit]

Recorded since 1432 as Middle English bogett, bouget, bowgette (leather pouch), borrowed from Old French bougette, the diminutive of bouge (leather bag, wallet) (also the root of bulge), itself from Late Latin bulga (leather bag, bellow), which derives from Gaulish *bolgā (compare Old Irish bolg (bag), Breton bolc’h (flax pod)), a common root with the Germanic family (compare Dutch balg (bellows)), from the Proto-Indo-European *bʰelǵʰ-. More at belly.
