Bushong Name Meaning
Americanized spelling of French Bouchon, a habitational name from a place in Somme, so named with the personal name Buccius + Gallic duros ‘fortress’, or a topographic name for someone who lived in an area of bushes, from Old French bousche ‘bush’. Possibly an altered spelling of German Buschang, which is of Slavic origin (see Bushek).
