Note
Attested in Old Norse as an epithet or personal name. De Vries thought this a possible loanword from MLat. boscus 'gathered wood' (AED). However, DAF argues that the early appearance of the word in Germanic excludes the hypothesis of borrowing from Romance into Germanic. Compare OFr. bois 'wood (small forest; wood (material)', probably from OFrk. *bŏsk- 'bush', reconstructable from OHG, OS busc and attested in placenames as early as 937, as well as in the compound brâmalbusc 'bramble, blackberry bush' (TLF).
