  • According to Shansky, ultimately from Persian [script needed] (bärk, shoulder, shoulder blade) via the intermediary of one of the languages of the Caucasus and influenced by the Russian term бу́рый (búryj); alternatively, but less likely, from a Turkic source, cf. Turkish börk (felt hat) and Turkish bürümek (to wrap).
