🔼The name Buzi in the Bible

The name Buzi occurs only once in the Bible. The prophet Ezekiel mentions him as his father (Ezekiel 1:3).

🔼Etymology of the name Buzi

The name Buzi comes from the root-verb בוז (buz) meaning contempt:

The name Buzi is identical to the Hebrew word for Buzite: someone who descends from an ancestor named Buz, or someone who lives in a country called Buz.

🔼Buzi meaning

For a meaning of the name Buzi, NOBSE Study Bible Name List reads Descendant Of Buz. Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names has Sprung From Buz.

However, the letter י (yod) may also be seen as a possessive. That would render the name Buzi the meaning of My Contempt.
