Buntrock Name Meaning
German: from Middle Low German bunt ‘striped or piebald fur’ (see Bunt) + rock ‘tunic’, ‘smock’, hence presumably a nickname for an habitual wearer of such an item of clothing or possibly a metonymic occupational name for a furrier. Alternatively, the first element is believed by some to derive from binden ‘to tie’. Compare Bundschuh.
