Mingiyan says that there are several etymologies of the word Buzava. According to one that he heard from a Buzava woman from Shin-Byadl, the Buzavas originate from the 13 aimaks that settled on the banks of the Buza River. Five of those aimaks were comprised from Torghut and eight from Derbet. According to yet another etymology, the words derives from the Kalmyk words buu ‘rifle’ and zaa ‘to give’.
