Etymology[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish بوزاغو ‎(buzağu), بوزاغی ‎(buzağı, a sucking calf), from Old Anatolian Turkish [script needed] ‎(buzağu, calf), from Proto-Turkic *buŕagu ‎(calf).[1] Compare Hungarian borjú ‎(calf), a borrowing from Bulgar *burǝʷu. Related to Proto-Mongolic *biraɣu ‎(calf) (cf. Mongolian бяруу ‎(bjaruu, calf in its second year)), perhaps inherited from a common source[2] or a Turkic loanword.[3] Compare also Turkish dialectal buza- ‎(to bear a calf).
