EtymologyEdit

From Middle French [Term?], from Old French biche(doe, female deer) and bisse(wild animal), of uncertain origin and relation. The form bisse is almost certainly from Vulgar Latin bīstia, variant of Latin bēstia (compare bête); however, the contemporary biche is an enigma, and possibly unrelated. It may be the Picard form of bisse, (compare chent for cent) or may share origin with Middle French bique(nanny-goat), believed to be derived from Proto-Germanic *bik(goat). More at bouc.
