Albanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Albanian *bukura, derivative of *buk- ‎(lush, lusty), from Proto-Indo-European *bʰoHu- ‎(to grow, swell), close to Proto-Germanic *būkaz ‎(belly, body), compare Icelandic búkur ‎(torso), Old High German būh ‎(belly), English bouk ‎(belly, trunk, torso, carcass). Also akin to Old Czech buj ‎(mad, foolish)). Similar sense development as with kolmë. Related to bukël. The Proto-Albanian root has probably had a cognate in Dacian [1]
